Fluffy Pink

I do like the Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketches and do my best to join in each week and I knew that I'd be making this card for a friend but just didn't know what image to use. I have a large box full of pre printed images that I've not coloured (I have one with coloured images in too - just ready to be used!) and I found this Pink Petticoat image in it.

I've used one of my Nesties dies to cut it and then inked the edges with my trusty pink and blue (rather well used and gnarly inkpads!) plus dotted a pink gel pen line around the edges.

The papers are a mix of different digital brands and I found them in my box of oddments that I am desperately trying to use up as its becoming a little unmanageable! The pink fluffy stuff is actually yarn that I've had for ages (got it in black and white too!) and I knew I'd be able to use it one day!More gel pen dotting around the edges of the card and layers (blue pen this time) plus some dabs of liquid pearls and the card is complete. And actually a few days before I need to send it! To say I am a card maker, I am terrible for remembering Birthdays and sending cards!

As this is the 100th Sweet Sketch, there is a blog hop, so I'm off to take part in that!

  • Papers: Various
  • Image: Pink Petticoat, coloured with Promarkers
  • Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities
  • Everything else: My stash
