Friday Sketchers

An amazing sketch by Carole this week at Friday Sketchers - it is simple, elegant and an absolute dream to work with - so effective. I used Magnolia's Alf and coloured him with pastels and the paper is by Anna Griffin. I use the nestie labels as the center piece and sat Alf on a SU flower. The border is embossed with the Cuttlebug border folder and the corners with round nesties. I cut Alf out and placed him on the label, only to find his top half disappeared into the bp - der............. I gently lifted him and had to cut out a 'shadow' for him - talk about making work for oneself.


Materials
Brown Bazzill bc : Anna Griffin bp : Image - Magnolia - sitting Alf : Derwent pastels : Cuttlebug + border embossing folder & Label and round nesties : SU flower : Ribbon and brads from stash
