Sensational Sketches

Here's two cards for the Sensational Sketches challenge over on Caardvarks,


I'm really pleased with this one, just love the colours in this BG collection! I was a bit experimental die cutting the letters for thanks with adhesive sheet and felt, but like the result!

Materials:
Paper: PM pink vellums, white card, BG sultry, paper adventures Onyx,
Die's: Nestabilities squares, Sizzix - flower layers, alphabet,
Other: Cutb'g embossing folder, felt, double sided adhesive sheet, stitched ribbon, craft floss, flat backed gems, glossy accents, 3D foam.

I wasn't trying for a monotone card but just wanted to use the colour blue, so with the Laura Ashley paper being the starting point I went with it! I am loving these stamps by Kim Hughes they're so pretty and versatile! The background I used a tracer to create faux stitching and Tim's distresser for edges and sanded a little!
Materials:
Paper: Laura Ashley collection, DCWV textured, cream card,
Die's: Sizzix ornate frame, flower charms, flower layers,
Ink: Primary Colourbox - blues
Other: blue,white,grey felt, PM brad, tracer, Tim's edge distresser, 3D foam.
