Thanks a bunch or two!

It’s my turn to host at Willow Sketchie Challenge and this is the sketch I’ve come up with :

The theme is Summer Florals.So anything flowery will do whether it’s the image,papers,flowers or any other floral stash item.You can take a choice of either the sketch or theme.Or really go for it and do both! You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!As well as a winner (chosen randomly) there will be a hand picked Top 3 and they will receive a super cute badge for their blog.Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

I’ve used a super cute Walter Owl digi stamp taken from the Walter Owl digital collection by Willow Designs.He’s been coloured with FlexMarkers and fussy cut out.He’s then been shaped and adhered with 3D Glue for some extra dimension.I’ve layered up with some new Papermania Happy Days papers and new Papermania Kraftstax card from the latest DoCrafts Goody Bag along with some Trimcraft Textured card that I treated myself to – well you have to don’t you!I’ve Distress Inked the edges of the papers and afterwards pounced the edges of the card layers with the same piece of Cut n Dry.I shaped the pieces the sentiment is mounted onto,using that as a guide.I added some Blitters,the flowers,from the same Goody Bag and some Raffia Lace Ribbon plus a length of grosgrain ribbon.The Raffia Lace was much lighter in colour originally so that got Distress Inked too.I have to confess the ribbon is a little bit of a cover up job as even tho’ I’d tried hard to remember that the paper had a right way up I didn’t notice until I’d stuck the sentiment on that it was in fact upside down!!Oooopsie!Luckily I’d used wet glue and it hadn’t set so I managed to save it and just make a few  *cough* minor  alterations…

So on to some super news!The  new Walter and Winnie Christmas Stamps are available from Willow Designs to pre-order now!!The stamps can be found in the Clear Stamps section.They’re sooo cute you’ll love ’em!
