Second post Sunday!! OMG(oodness!) I'm on a roll!

Second post from me and I am DEFINITELY on a creative roll this weekend - welcome back to my mojo!!

Since they forecast SNOW for us today I thought I would make the most of the excuse to stay in and craft .....

I found a new challenge this morning ...... Sunday Sketch and Stamp. How did I find this? Well, a fellow crafter that I know from Craftbubble has the honour of presenting her sketch for this challenge ... as a follower I picked it up from her blog - gr8 sketch Catherine! I just KNEW I had to have a go and I also knew that my new JOFY's would be deployed again too. Given the green on the leaves I find myself wondering if I could use it to enter the pan pastels "A TOUCH OF GREEN" challenge too.

Materials used:
  • 15cm square, 300 gsm white, scallop edged card and matching sized envelope (which will, as usual, be decorated to co-ordinate with my card)
  • 14 x 7½cm and 11 x 3½cm panels of black card
  • 13½ x 7 cm and 10½ x 3cm panels of white card
  • JOFY images from collection 09 stamped on larger white panel using Versafine onyx black ink and single image (from the same set) on to the narrow panel
  • Dylusions inks and gloss gel medium mixed on a blending sheet and then images "painted"
  • Sparkle 'n Sprinkle sentiment stamped directly on to card blank using Versafine onyx black ink
  • Narrow white satin ribbon coloured with a yellow alcohol marker and tied in an off centre knot

And a close up which shows the "touch of green" a little better perhaps

And there you have it ..... my entry for the challenge over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp - want to see Catherine's sketch? Here it is then:-

Have a great Sunday and .... Happy St Patricks Day
