Truly Scrumptious DT #17

This week at Truly Scrumptious we have a sketch by the 'Boss' the fabulous Sharon with the added challenge of including some doodling on your card.



Christine is offering one lucky winner the chance to choose six of her images as their prize. The DT were lucky enough to receive some images from Christine so you can see her fabulous artwork on some of their cards. Remember, you must follow the sketch AND the extra challenge to be in with a chance of winning.


We are thrilled to welcome Angela as our Guest Designer for October and November. Angela has only been blogging for 4 months but her cards are fabulous and you are in for a treat when you visit her blog.

Well I think I know which of Chris's digi-images is going to be popular - just look how many of us chose this truly delightful angel. It amazes me that one image can look so different. I think I printed her out a little large - but hey - I really wanted her to take 'center stage' as it were and she is coloured with Copics and stamped around the edges with one of Stempelglede's grunge flourish stamps. Both the green and the peach are embossed with the Textile folder and the one behind the image cut with WK Success's Parisian border punch. My doodling  (which I originally forget - another ooops!!) is on the three panels which I fastened with brads and the sentiment is Inkadinkado.




This is a close up of the angel, whose dress I covered with glimmer chalks, it doesn't show in the previous picture, but I'm not sure it does in this one either. The colours here are more true to the original which I will photograph again now we have daylight. I don't care what anyone says - daylight lamp distort the colour somewhat.

Hiya!
I loved you colours Heather and the colouring is gorgeous as ever, mine is a bit wishy washy I feel, just can't seem to get the depth of colour with the old Pro Markers!
