ICS Sketches and News...


This Tuesday the very lovely Dawn brings you a fantastic sketch to inspire you, from Inspirational Card Sketches....
I thought I would try one of Dustin Pike's Fabulous designs, I printed onto cotton rag artists paper and coloured with my copic markers! The little addition is the stamp on the shield... it's one of BG boxer stamps. While the stamps were handy I also created a dimensional Rosette with paper piecing and glazed brad.

I have added a banner created with border punch and stamped onto the dp. Finished with a few rub ons and more stamping...





Materials:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, artists cotton rag,
Die's: Nesties - circle, dovecraft border punch,
Stamps: Dustin Pike's - bear knight, BG - boxer insignia, HOTP - sentiment,
Ink: Archival ink - black, copics,
Other: BG - boxer rub ons, BG - glazed brad, 3D foam,
This is a little fun one using Dawn's DT call sketch...

Now, a little while ago I won a stunning stamp set from Our Daily Bread Designs through CPS challenge, it happens that the stamp I had one was forever out of stock and so I opted for this gorgeous bird song one and it arrived the other day...

I have coloured this time with my distress inks and water brush, loving this Cosmo Cricket papers and followed the colour theme through! Wanted to try different photo shoot so click on images to enlarge...


Materials:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket paper, watercolour paper,
Die's: Nesties - rectangles, labels 1, Punch - corner rounder,
Stamps: our daily bread designs - sing of the lord,
Ink: Archival Ink - black, Distress inks - various,
Other: Natural string, bg - brads, 3D foam, Tim's blending tool,
