Stamp Something Sketch Challenge!

Evening all. Hope you've had a fantastic BH weekend and enjoyed the lovely weather. Well I've finished work now and have tomorrow off so looking forward to a lie in in the morning and hopefully some craft time! This is the first time I have entered the Stamp Something challenge after I stumbled across it this week! Loved the simplicity of the sketch, I tend to sway towards the CAS approach so was perfect for me!

I have coloured the 'gorjuss' image in with my distress inks. She has been cut out and mounted onto 3D foam. CS is coredinations and was cut out with my nesties. The pink CS is embossed with swiss dots. The stripey paper was an off cut I had in my scrap box and I think it's papermania double sided CS that you can get from The Range. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and a few papermania pearl brads to finish. I am loving these pearl brads at the minute, I seem to be using them on everything! :-)

Well I've just got in after having a lovely family meal. My mum, Dad, Grandma & Niece came over to see me after I finished work and we went out for sunday tea {I know it's not really sunday but as it's BH and I've been working it has felt like one all day to me!}. I just want to say hello to my niece Millie as she sometimes reads my blog with my mum and would love to see her name on here! She is 10 and is also very much into her card making!! I think I have passed on the bug! Lol!

Well thanks for stopping by. It's my 1st bloggoversary in a few days and I am trying to get some candy together so watch this space!!

Hugs, Vicky -x-

I just love this Vicky - I think these cards with white spaces are so striking and you totally nailed the layout! xx

You know Vicky, this one is exactly the right amount of elegant simplicity. The image is where you have the most detail which of course pulls the eye right to it. The other elements accent it not detract from it. Perfect!
