Friday Sketchers #19 - Docrafts September friendship & my first Sugar Nellie


As I had a whole afternoon crafting yesterday I wanted to make my Docrafts September Friendship card for Sharon T, and decided to have a go at the fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers .


I used the gorgeous Sugar Nellie Elisabeth Bell "Flowers" image gifted to me by my friend Cathy - I don't own any of these stamps but could possibly feel a credit card splurge coming on! I watercoloured the image using a mixture of pencils and Marvey markers, and decorated the hat and bracelet with tiny gemstones. The papers are all from my stash (most didn't have a make printed on them); flowers are by WH Smith (purple) and Prima, and buttons are from the local market. The sentiment is Penny Black "..Second Self", which I love to use on friendship cards.

  6. Thank you so much Pauline. The card IRL is absolutely stunning! Your attention to detail is superb - all those little gems on the flowers and bracelet. It is now proudly on display in my house.
    Thanks,
