Today's five inch card is my entry into the first sketch challenge at Isabella's Challenge Blog. I've used a beautiful image from Isabella called Mary Mary, which I've printed at approx. 2.75 inches tall.
The DSP is from the Kaisercraft Peachy Keen paper pad, which I think is full of beautiful Australian colours. The Ochre and burnt orange I picked for my card, teamed it with some American Crafts airforce blue (my name) for the mat. The base card is GKD pure luxury heavyweight.
The image was printed onto a self patterned sheet of the DSP and cut to size. I've coloured with Inkadinks and a Sakura clear glitter pen, for the swirls above the flowers. Hard to see in this picture, however IRL it gives just a touch of sparkle to my card.
The sentiment is from Annabelle Stamps 'Flowers With Love', stamped with SU Chocolate Chip ink. I've attached some ribbon and the bird image, from the same paper pad was cut with a Spellbinder die.
To complete the sketch I added the three chocolate pearls at the top plus the tiny pearls below the ribbon.
This is the second card I've made with Isabella's Illustrations - I really like both. Have you tried them yet? Why not join the challenge and join Isabella's group on PCP.
This card is also going into the challenge over at Fab n Funky Challenges - 'Spring is in the air'
