Play Date and Get Sketchy


I have used the Get Sketchy sketch challenge with the Recipe from the Play Date Cafe, I always need direction for my creations so I look forward to thursdays for their recipe and then chose the sketch i want to use. I have only recently discovered the Get Sketchy challenges. Links to both are to the right of my blog. Anyway onto my card. I used just blue, black and white on the this one. I stamped the upsy daisy stamp from stampin up with white ink and sprinkled on some embossing powder which I then embossed using my stove top (yep thats right I have a halogen ring which works great LOL). I put some double sided tape on some whisper white card stock before cutting some thin strips which I used for the lines. 3 little half pearls and a sentiment finished it off.

Someone has left me a lovely email to tell me about the challenge over a Caardvarks so I will also put it into that one too.

  9. You made me giggle about using your stove for the embossing, I used to use my toaster! I burnt quite a few cards though lol

    Lovely card, I really like how you've done the strips on the left, very effective!

    Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe!
