Beate’s Weekend Sketch Challenge WSC43

I have been away on holidays and since I returned, I haven’t had much time for stamping and doing challenges. No correction, I did stamp, because I had 2 swaps to do with my new Gina K. Designs stamps. Can’t show those until the swap has been made.

So I decided to take the time to make Beate’s challenge this weekend. I had a thank you card to make, so here it is:

Beate’s sketch:

Here is my card:

The bottom right element is much taller, but I hope that it works ok for the challenge. The stamped image is another adorable Hedgehog from Penny Black. I colored it with my Prismacolor and odorless mineral spirit (Fragonar in Canada – like Gamsol). The paper is from a 6 x 6 Basic Grey Pad. The SU greeting is stamped in black SU ink. And I used my brand new Janome sewing machine to create a little border on the Basic Grey striped paper. (It works very well Jennifer!! Thanks!) The scallop border is done with Fiskar scissors and the embossed circles in the scallop are created using the crop-a-dile. I’m not sure I like the effect of the dots being sanded – next time I won’t sand. The stamped image is cut and emblossed with a Nestabilities Scallop die and my Cuttlebug.

Thanks for looking!
