PFOP – A Sketch!

For our Pocket Full of Posies challenge this week we have a great sketch by Sandie  for you to follow. Our sponsors this week are Cardz’n’Scrapz, and they are giving our winner a copy of Tim Holtz’s book ‘A Compendium of Curiosities’. Our Guest Designer is Marcea Watkins.

Sandie’s sketch

Here is the card that I made using the sketch. I used designer papers from My Mind’s Eye and K & Co’s Wild Raspberry collection, and the image and sentiment are both by Lili of the Valley. I coloured the image with Promarkers, and sponged the edge the oval with Distress Ink by Ranger in Broken China. My floral decorations are all from my stash, and I added a sparkle to them by Glimmer Misting the flowers with Iridescent Gold before attaching them to the card.

I hope that you enjoyed our first challenge, and thank you to all of you who made a card – they were all wonderful!  I’m sure that you’ll love playing along this fortnight too, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the entries based on Sandie’s sketch!

A Pocket Full of Posies – One for the Girls!

Welcome to our first Pocket Full of Posies challenge!  Our fabulous sponsors for this week are Wild Orchid Crafts, who are stockists of the most delightful flowers and trims, so don’t forget to pay them a visit – you won’t be disappointed! They are sponsoring our launch with a fabulous prize, and I think you’ll agree that it’s well worth entering a card.

Here is my first Design Team card. The very sweet image is by Lili of the Valley, who make some of my favourite stamp designs at the moment.  I’ve coloured the little scene with Promarkers, and used designer papers from Fancy Pants and K & Co. The cute felt flowers are from Stampin’ Up, and the sentiment stamp is by Woodware.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit; don’t forget to drop by to see what the other members of the Design Team have made. I look forward to seeing you all again very soon!
