Truly Scrumptious #12

This weeks challenge at TrulyScrumtious is a sketch which was designed by me - hope you like it and enjoy trying it out. We also want to see some beads on your cards this time. Remember, only cards that follow the sketch and the additional challenge are eligible for the prize draw.

We are delighted to welcome back Whimsy Stamps as our sponsor. Whimsy Stamps is a family owned art stamp company dedicated to providing crafters around the world with whimsical and fun rubber stamp designs. And now Whimsy Stamps has a new digital collection available! Hop across to their website to take a look at their fabulous stamps. Denise is kindly offering this newly released hippo stamp plus a digital wedding image as the prize for the winner of this challenge.

I decided to use one of my Gorjuss girls and Basic Grey's Porcelain papers. I stamped my Gorjuss girl twice, once on shrink plastic and coloured them with Copic markers. Ooh I do love shrinking images - it's such good fun. I had a few disasters trying this initially but I've cracked it now. No more heat gun - in the oven they go on gas M3 for a couple of minutes and out they come - perfect!! I cut the middle strip with EK Success zig-zag stitch border punch - then covered it up.........derrr..... although you can just see it peeping out. I placed one bead of Gorjuss's hair to cover up the skeleton and used beads on the pin and the charm. The flowers are some I picked up in my local craft shop (threw the packet out (idiot that I am) so I can't tell you who they are by). The sentiment is computer generated.
Papers - Basic Grey Porcelain
Image - Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss girl
Medium Copic markers
Punches - EK Success Zig-zag stich : Leone Em branch
Flowers, ribbon, beads & pin from stash

Any spelling mistakes are down to Chester the cat helping me post this by walking across the keyboard and regular intervals.

Heather, you've done a brilliant creation here. The shrink piece to make a charm is so very clever and the papers are perfection. Yup! You've done it again! Thanks again for supporting me and for the recent award. I've now passed it on -- so it's on the move.
