Based on a sketch :)

Hello there friends!

I thought this month I'd do something a little bit different, and use the current challenge over at our sister-blog Little Tangles, to give my mojo a boost...I mean, give me a starting point.

The current challenge happens to be a sketch!

SO cute right?!

Now I had planned to do at least 3-4 cards for you but alas, aforementioned mojo took a runner. But thankfully I eeked out these two cards for you before it did!

 First I punched a circle out of some printer paper, and used it as a mask before spraying Dylusions Lemon Zest ink. After that dried, I added the footprints and the heat embossed sentiment (American Crafts Zing Embossing Powder)

Next I stamped, coloured and fussy-cut out my little bear (he looks so pleased with life, dont you think?!) and then I added a little twine bow around his neck, before popping him onto the card with dimensional adhesive.

Lastly I rounded the corners. Done! Super cute :)

Ok, the next card!

I HAD intended to flip the sketch around for this one, but it worked better in the original 'direction' so I left it as is.

I punched a circle of sturdy cardstock, covered it with Multi Matte Medium, then used a selection of Neat and Tangled sequins, to cover the circle. I set this aside to dry.

Next I stamped the chevron stamp in white chalk ink, and then added the circle element. Finally I added the teal Thickers and a couple of extra sequins, before I drew some border lines using my white gel-pen.

Sketches are a great kick-off point for card-making or any crafty project. Why not give this one  a go?! There's so much you could do with this sketch!

The Little Tangles challenge finishes Sunday, March 3rd at 11:59 EST
