Friday Sketchers Challenge

I just found this challenge so I'm a bit late with it. Nice easy sketch to start me off.

Here's the sketch for this week for the Friday Sketchers blog challenge.
















I decided to turn my card 90 degrees because the image is quite small. I've used a ladybug and friends image very kindly sent to me by Frances. Thanks Frances!! x I think this is my favourite or it could be the frog one. :0) I've coloured the image in with prismas and zest it. I've accentuated the swirls on the sheep with a silver gel pen although you don't get the effect from the photo in real life it looks embossed. I've also used some diamond glaze on their cheeks and the heart. The papers are from the American Crafts - spring summer range. I layered them up with cardstock, which all came with my Sarah's cardmaking monthly kit. The "adorable" sentiment is a Stampin Up one and I cut out the backing cardstock with a stampin up punch. The little gold and crystal dots are peel offs.


Stamps:- Ladybug and Friends by Rachelle Anne Miller
Papers:- American Crafts
Sentiment:- Stampin Up

I won't say who but this card will be winging it's way to someone as a thank you.

PS I've just managed to get a better photo of the card showing you the silver gel pen effect to the sheep's wool.
