Challenge 63 A Sketch

Hosted By Susie
Our challenge this time is a Sketch
You can create anything you like as long as it follows the sketch, so card, scrap LO, wall hanging, etc.
 Please follow the sketch to qualify for the prizes and Top 5 positions. If we are unable to see the sketch you will not be eligible for either.  
Any creations entered which do not meet the criteria listed above will not be eligible for our fabulous prizes nor for one of our Top 5 spots. Please ensure your challenge meets the criteria if you don't want to miss out. We are seeing an increasing number of entrants who are either not reading our rules, or properly reading what we are challenging you to do and as we need to be fair to those people who do play by the rules we need to be strict with those who don't.
Please also remember we only accept entries from people who have entered NO MORE THAN FIFTEEN CHALLENGES, so 14 plus this one. In future those entrants not meeting the rules will be deleted.

We are also sponsored by DIGI DOODLE SHOP who are offering a $10 Gift Certificate for the store
Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabledDigi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.
It is a real honor and pleasure to sponsor this challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the design team for their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck in this challenge.
Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.
Judy and Joy
 So without further ado onto the challenge and what the team have come up with this time
 I've use an image from Dilly Bean's which is coloured with Copic pens along with my favourite Pink Petticoat papers this time. The roses are made using dies from Mariannes Creatables with some added beads of the centres. A little strip of ribbon and white gel pen for the faux stitching and a touch of Glossy Accents to bring out her eyes!
Beautiful image from Digi Doodle Shop and some Spellbinders die cuts with some Papermania papers and embellishments and I've got my first Easter card done!
I've used the same gorgeous image from Digi Doodle Shop as Josephine--Roses. I've used the Spellbinders Labels Nine die cut and paper pieced the image as I'm no good at colouring. :)
 I have used the gorgeous Butterfly and Thistle image from Digi Doodle Shop, cut with a Spellbinder oval nestie so the butterfly is just outside the shape!!
 I used the adorable Horse Kiss image from Digi Doodle Shop, adding tiny buttons, raffia and Basic Grey DP for my interpretation of Susie's sketch.
I've used the sweet Vintage Bike image from Digi Doodle Shop, Quite Contrary DP, ribbon & a few embellies to follow Susies sketch.
 I love sketches and decided to use a Jayne Netley Mayhew's CD for my image and papers.
My image is a LOTV stamp which I have coloured with ProMarkers. I have used papers from Marianne Designs Full Colour Block and Dovecraft Back To Basics.Flowers are from WOC and sentiment from Craftwork Cards. Ribbon,gems and pearls are from my stash.
 I used the Aquarium set from Digi Doodle Shop, coloured in using promarkers.  I used create and craft pastel blush cardstock and also used Nesties, gilding flakes, pearlidoodles and ribbon from my stash.  The good luck sentiment was an old stamp from my stash, embossed with moonglow embossing powder.  
 I have made this card using  Sheena Douglas's CD for papers and the flower topper.
 With the exception of  the card base and the eyelets this card was made entirely from leather which I embossed and then distressed. For further details on how I made this please see my blog.
 I used Little Sweeper Girl from our Sponsor Digi Doodle Shop and papers from Kaisercraft.
I used the little boy 'Games Over' from Digi Doodle Shop and the paper is from Magnolia.
I used the little girl " Field of Flower " from Digi Doodle Shop and design paper.
I created my card using 'Ballerina' from our sponsor Digi Doodle Shop, papers from First Edition and a greeting from Craftwork Cards.
I created my card using a saturated canary image teamed with papers by Authentic
I adore using sketches to make my cards and this was a fab Challenge for me! I used my First Edition Papers, my wee Sugar Nellie stamp coloured with Promarkers, my fab rose die, ribbon and sentiment to create it!

If you would like to stop by their blogs I am sure they would be pleased to see your comments and if you want to know how something was done I am sure there will be more details on their own blogs.

  4. So glad to have found you! Have just started to enter a few challenges but loved this one. Have never worked to a sketch before so this was something new. Made me think more about what to use than where to place it which was great. The design team have made beautiful work, all very individual. I shall certainly continue with you and am already waiting to see what the next challenge holds. Thanks
