Sketch Saturday #34

There' s a lovely sketch to follow this week over on Sketch Saturday.

The stamps are all various accent stamps put together and coloured with a mix of copics and watercolour pencils with the background chalked. The butterfly was stamped then cut out and sits slightly raised using silicon. Used the same patterned paper in the main background and for the scalloped circle (using nesties) that the image is mounted on. Cuttlebugged the green card with the swirls folder and lightly chalked with green. The scalloped purple card was embossed using the Romance keepsake board. All card and paper was from my scraps stash but I believe the patterened paper was from Kanban (doing well with my scraps lately). The panel is a patterned ribbon, from Crafty Ribbons, mounted onto some card then added a gem flower and some gem circles. Did the sentiment disc using nesties and peel-off sentiment. Below is this weeks sketch:

I'm a bit late with a card today but the weather was really lovely today, although chilly, so Steve and I went to the coast with Mollie. We ended up at Hornsea, where Mollie had a fab time on the beach , digging in the sand and running away from the Had a nice coffee and bacon butties sitting outside the seafront cafe. Then we drove a few miles up the the coast to Skirlington where there was a market and it just so happens there were two craft stalls there, well I couldn't just walk on past them, now could I?, picked up a few bargains, best being a couple of cuttlebug die sets which were £10 each but had 50% off so got them for £5 each. So had a really enjoyable day, and feel better for the sea air, certainly blew the cobwebs away. Hope you've all had a lovely weekend.
