A peek at Summer


At Digi Sketch Challenge we have another new challenge and the theme this fortnight is Summertime.We have the super Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor.

It’s the lovely Kelly’s turn to host and here’s her fabby sketch :

You can follow the sketch,theme or even both.Hope you stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational bunch.

For my card I’ve used Summertime Peekers Flower Pot by Bugaboo Stamps  and coloured this cutie with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.Altho’ it doesn’t show too well I did colour the flowers with Copic Atyou Spica pens for a little sparkle.I chose a lovely bright paper from a past freebie in Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and found some coordinating card in my stash.The square panels have been embossed with a recently purchased embossing folder.I love it.It embossed so deeply and it only cost me £1.99 🙂 Inked over it to bring the pattern out further.I die cut a flower and some leaves to add the sentiment to.I tied a bow and left the tails long so I could twirl them around.
