Ruby Tuesday & Cake

The Friday Sketchers Challenge this week is:

I have sort of already made a New Years Resolution to stop printing papers when I have so many smaller scrap bits! So, I am making a determined effort to use up some of the overflowing stash of small pieces of printed backing papers that I have. Either that or I will run out of room!

This card uses some of the papers from Ruby Tuesday from Funky Daze and the stamp is one of my new ones (this is becoming a habit!) which was only 99p! I've coloured the image with watercolour pencils and there is a bit of gold glitter in there too. The dots around the edges of the paper have been made by using a new toy that Enfys has sent me - its a plastic faux stitching template but I thought I'd use the guide holes to add some dots!

Apologies for the gaudy looking cupcake but I tried to recreate the colours on the paper!

  • Backing papers: Ruby Tuesday collection from Funky Daze
  • Stamp: Dovecraft coloured with watercolour pencils and gold glitter
