Sketch Saturday AND Colour Create!!!

Thought I would have a go, this is my first time trying the Sketch Saturday challenge...
I have used the tree from father knows best set again, but this time I have heat embossed with clear ep masked it and stamped more with distress inks giving a softness to the distant trees! I kept to the colour tones of the dp! The brads I wanted to keep to a natural theme and I inked the thread to match the colours of these buttons.

Paper: WeRMM - Write Out explore collection, PTI - Kraft
Nestabilities rectangles, labels 1,
Stamps: PTI -
Father Knows Best ,
Ink: Versamark, mix of Distress inks, Versafine black,
Other: American Crafts grosgrain ribbon, Tim's Edge distresser, clear ep, Glossy accents, BG buttons, natural string, 3D foam,

The Next Card is for the new challenge blog created by the very talented Tara called Colour Create.....

The first challenge just happens to be my favourite colours I think you'll find most of my BG papers cover this one! Which is exactly what I used, the photo's are the worst and the pink is much brighter IRL, on this I have printed the wonderful rose digi drawings from the talented Chris! I then used my copic's to enhance the details and added a few highlights, they're so pretty and delicate! This was such a quick card to create and thin for posting too!

Paper: BG - Sultry, Textured Pearl - Brown,
Dis: corner rounder,
Stamps: Sketching stamper - lots of flowers, HOTP - sentiment,
Ink: Colourbox, copic sketch markers, white gel pen,
Other: American craft ribbon, 3D foam,

Wow! two cards in one post, thanks for stopping by and getting this far, hope you have a good Friday we're having another snow day at home the hills are too bad here and the council has stopped all the school buses!!! HuGs Kim x

Oh wow, these are stunning. I love the card you made for Colour Create and sorry I didn't manage to look at your blog last week. Thank's for joining us in the challenge though.

I love your "Father" card and these stamps are gorgeous. I love the way you have used distress inks to ink the trees behind. Gorgeous.
