#150 - Feeling Sketchy

Hi all you Lovelies!

OH WOW!! My card for #149 : Hold on to Your Dreams, was chosen as a Top Pick over at Feeling Sketchy! Thank you sooooo much! 

The First Sketch for August at Feeling Sketchy is up and I have but a few hours to submit my card ;-) I did not have much time for any creativity as other priorities got in the way. 

Here is the great sketch designed by Michelle van Wyk:

And here is my take on the sketch:
Yet again bad lighting as the sun is down already :-(

I used patterned papers from a very old Making Memories 6x6 paperpack, Whiteboard embellishments from Enmarc Crafts in South-Africa and the green paper flowers are also from Enmarc Crafts, but the item is long time discontinued. 
The leaves were punched out from the same paper range, I tea-dyed the lace flower and the ribbon and large brad are from my stash.
I stamped the sentiment with Memento LUXE : Pistachio and raised it with foam squares onto the card.

A little surprise on the top left corner inside the card:
Enmarc Crafts Products used:

I cut one of the small flowers from the Page Corner : Flower String and used it on the tag.

Thank you for stopping by :-) I hope you found a wee bit of inspiration here and thank you so much for your kind comments!

Hugs and love till next time :-) ♥♥♥

#149 Feeling Sketchy

Hi all you Lovelies!
I made over 200 commissioned cards lately so I am a bit allergic to card making at the moment LOL!

I have so much left over papers and especially from my last layout for the Let's Scrap Sketches challenges, that I just had to make something! I joined in on Feeling Sketchy - Challenge #149. This is a Card Making group and there are really some awesome sketches you can play with!

This is Sketch #149
and here is my take on the sketch.

Now I must admit that I will have to make many more little projects before I will have used all the left-over papers!!

Enmarc Crafts products used:
Thank you for stopping by and your comment is much appreciated :-)

Happy Crafting till next time!

Never Never Give Up! Just Do It!

We recently had a holiday up north and my DH has been dreaming of a microlite flip over the Victoria Falls for many years. Well, this time he actually did it! He said it was incredible and the view from the sky was just breathtakingly awesome!
I used the bi-weekly sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches for my Layout.

As you can see, I did not use the sketch as is, but rotated it to suit my needs. Here is my take on the sketch:

I used some more of my very old stash - Simple Stories : Urban Traveller. 

A few close-ups:
For the green background I used a watermark ink pad, stamp and stencil and for the 'droplets' I used Enmarc Craft's Arty Stencil : Bubble Wrap, Finnabair Gold Crackle Paste and ultra fine glitter.

White Board embellishments and other products from Enmarc Crafts:
Thank you for stopping by :-)
Happy Crafting till next  time!
