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.
My name is Pauline, and I have been cardmaking since 2006. I started my cardmaking blog in 2008, to showcase my addiction to stamping and all things pretty - I can spend hours footling around matching up papers, ribbons and embellishments!! I have been on a number of card blog design teams, but am currently taking a step back due to various other commitments. During 2013 I discovered the joy of baking, and for 2014 have started a new baking blog to chart my progress and also include a charity element. I only wish I had more time to devote to these hobbies ... but I have to work full time as a project manager to help pay for my baking ingredients and crafty stash!!
