Friday Sketchers

I love the sketch at Friday Sketchers this week and really enjoyed making this card which just flowed. As my removal men left a box behind which contained all my 12"x12" papers and cardstock I am reduced to searching my stash to find alternatives. I have pile of velums, patterned and plain which I've had for years and I've used just a few of them here. If backed with white paper or card they are so effective. I've even used some of the pale green vellum to cut out the leaves which gives them a gentle, dainty look. My gorjuss girl is coloured with Copics, cut and embossed with round nesties and then coloured round the perimeter. I normally use inks but decided to use pearlised chalks which give a lovely sparkly effect, but do look better if you don't get them in the images hair!! I have now wiped them off and will re-photograph this in daylight tomorrow. The center flower is from Hobbycraft and the two heather stems either side were from my local market in Blackburn.

Materials
Stamp - Sugar Nellie Gorjuss Girls
Mediums - Copic markers & Dovecraft pearlised chalks
Papers - Unknown
Tools - Spellbinders round nesties : Leone Em ash branch punch : Woodware leaf punch
Embellishments - Larger rose Hobbycraft : Heather stems - local market : Pearls - Basic Grey

Ooh that's pretty, Heather. Love the vellum leaves. I love this sketch too, have just finished my version but it's way too dark to photograph.

Of all the boxes for the removal men to leave behind, why that one???!!!! Hope it hasn't gone missing, that would be the worst.
