Morning and welcome to sketchie day!

Morning all,

Welcome to Saturday - it's CRAFTATHON Saturday today so I'm away from my desk today! And, hopefully, having a fine old time! Here are a couple of pics from Friday - the early birds arrived as soon as access was available so we cracked on and set up before heading off to pick up Nicola and then Clare - now we're all moved in and ready to start crafting first thing this morning.

L-R: Debs, Me and Wynneth

It's Lauren's turn to present the sketchie over on craftbubble's Craft Mad and Loving It group and she has chosen the additional theme of "TAKE IT AS RED"!

Here's my card and underneath again is her sketch - hope you like what I've done

Materials used:
  • C6 300 gsm white, scallop edged card and matching envelope
  • Panel of red card, with corners rounded
  • Panel of white card ½cm smaller than the red and with corners rounded
  • Offcut of red card with narrow white satin ribbon adhered centrally across panel
  • Red holographic card
  • Burgundy Coredinations card run through my big shot in a floral flourish embossing folder and then lightly sanded
  • Black card offcut die cut using a Tim Holtz die
  • White card panel
  • Inkadinkado heart image inked in Brilliance poppy and ?? sentiment inked across the heart using Memento tuxedo black
  • Crystal stickles to highlight
Additionally, I inked the heart again on the insert and again for the envelope (stamping three times without re-inking) and I used a Hero Arts sentiment inked in Brilliance poppy

Lauren's sketch

Happy Saturday
