Craft Stamper Sketch

There's a great sketch challenge over at CraftStamper Magazine, I really enjoy their magazine and have had the privilege of being featured in it with these cards and I discovered they have a blog so you can have a look here...


They have a wonderful sketch to try this month so thought I would have a go, I started stamping image and wanted to try and create a black and white photo by colouring with different tones of greys, I'm really pleased how well this worked. I have distressed the edges with tool and inks.

I have the BG Halvah stamps which I have stamped directly onto the BG papers and cut, trimmed! The section attached to the lace has also been stamped. Each piece had been raised with 3D foam. The dog tag I used Tim's grungeboard and inked to colour orange and stamped sentiment! attached with cute heart brad! The flowers are die cut and the butterfly punched!

Paper: Basic Grey - Ambrosia, heavy weight cartridge,
