Friday Sketchers # 42

Published March 8, 2009 by isisimaginings
Hope everyone is having a great Sunday, sorry I didn’t post yesterday; it was another one of those days & I didn’t get a card made. Can I start by saying that I dislike this font intensely? I know, I know it’s stupid, but I do. I always use Trebuchet to write my posts, but today my font options have disappeared. It’s very irritating. 🙂
A huge thanks to everyone who commented on my ‘Tilda in the Garden’ card, it is much appreciated. Now that a little time has passed since I made it, I’m actually quite pleased with it. So thanks again for all your encouragement.
On to today’s card. For the first time, I have attempted the Friday Sketchers challenge. This is the sketch that Mumur designed. There are a lot of elements, but I really like the layout.
I chose black & pink, because it’s been a while since I used those colours. Initially, I was going to use a 6×6 square card, but as I put the card together it started to look very crowded, so I switched to a C5 card instead.
Materials used:
  • C5 white cardstock
  • Patterned paper – Tesco
  • Black circular Nestie & pink frame Nestie – RAKs
  • Black swirls – gift from Eisbaerin
  • Corner swirl stamp – Inkadinkadoo
  • Long floral swirl stamp – Marie Curie for Cancer Care by Papermania
  • Whispers pens
  • Bright pink & clear embossing powders
  • Versafine ink pad – Onyx Black
  • WOJ sentiment
  • Prima & Papermania flowers, adhesive gems & pearls, pink brad, black & pink ribbons – from my stash.

Unfortunately, the scan has bled the colour from the long, floral swirl; in RL it’s a bright, zingy pink. And the black corner swirls aren’t placed exactly where they should be. Apart from that, I think it’s turned out pretty well. Hopefully, the recipient of this card will like it.

That’s it from me for tonight. I’m going to have a read through the Sunday papers & watch some TV – LA Ink is on at 10. 🙂

Love & light.
