Top Tip!


Morning Custard Lovers!

I have one of my faberoony Top Tips for you today Peeps, brace yourselves, it's a good one!

When you're following a Sketch, and you're a Fluffhead, don't do it from memory, you'll miss something off...


This week, at Sketch Saturday, not only has Lisa given us this lovely Sketch to play with, but her shop, The Craft's Meow, is also providing the scrummy prize. Pop over to Sketch Saturday for all the details and to see the gorgeous creations from the rest of The Saturdays.


Let me tell you about this image. I've been itching to ink Marci for ages and I wanted to try out something new. I stamped her fourteen, yes fourteen, times, before finally deciding she was not the right image for the technique I wanted to try. Fifteenth time lucky! And. Two of my flesh Copics have given up and gone to Copic Heaven, not good when you are almost throwing the rattle out of the pram...! ;)

I'm adding this card to the La-La Land Craft Gallery.

Recipe
Cardstock:
Stampin Up!
Papers: On Holiday; The Girls Paperie

Image:
La La Land Crafts Sweetheart Marci; My Mum's Craft Shop
Sentiment: Oopsie - never work to a sketch from memory!! ;)

Ok, I'll listen to you and will never again work to a sketch from memory (I always do, then can't enter, because I always forget or change something:-))! I love your card, your image is adorable and beautifully coloured! I love the bunting (both:-)) and your design is fab! BIG hugs Delphine xx

Amanda R said...

Already learned that lesson Faye, I always print out my sketch to refer to but since I usually like them I keep them for further reference. Tip, don't save them all or there is no more room on your craft table! Great card, I have some of those la la land images, may need to pull one out too but not gonna try the light ink look yet. Love yours though, you are braver than I friend...
