As I ahve been off sick from work I was offered a 'Special Assignment' from Ali who runs Sketches:Creatively yours. I was to create two contrasting cards using the Sketch by Noella which appeared on the post when she was announced as Guest Sketch Artist for April.
The above card was made using Rubbernecker Stamp Company stamps. The background was stamped and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Coloured using Spiced Marmalade and Brushed Corduroy Distress inks. The leaves were stamped with Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and the cut out and covered with Distress Stickles. The tag was stamped with the same Distress inks and a black swirl added to each end.
This card was made using Cleo crafts monthly kit which contained gorgeous American Crafts Letterbox Collection papers. I stamped a Pink Gem Designs girl coloured with promarkers. A simple yet effective birthday card.
