For my second image wallet of the weekend I decided to use my favourite BasicGrey "Two Scoops" papers, and hoped I could co-ordinate them nicely with this week's sketch for Friday Sketchers #24. This week's BasicGrey Challenge #7 is stitching, so I had a go with faux stitching on my background square. This is my Docrafts monthly image swap wallet, so I hope my partner likes it.
I used: main image is Penny Black "Tender Hug" coloured with watercolour pencils and decorated wtih Papermania gems; sentiment is diecut from Cuttlebug "Forever Friends" cut'n'emboss folder; papers are basicGrey "Two Scoops"; pearlised lemon cardstock embossed wtih Cuttlebug "Floral Fantasy" folder; flowers by Prima; buttons, ribbons and dragonfly brad from my stash.
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!!
