{friend}

Hello There!!!!! It's Sweet Sunday Sketch time again, and Karen has provided an AWESOME sketch this week... GORGEOUS. I couldn't wait to play when I saw it, and would've had a card made earlier today... BUT.... I had an awful day, so have only just managed to get one made now. Given my terrible day... my MOJO went a little AWOL too, so I made life a little easier for myself by combining Karen's gorgeous sketch with Keesh's Inkspiration Colour Combo of Always Artichoke, Mellow Moss, Rose Red and Whisper White. BRILLIANT... all the hard work done for me on this one. YAY.

Here's what I came up with:-

And here's the GORGEOUS sketch Karen gave us this week:-


I will definately be using this one again.
I've been wanting to ink up my NEW 'Great Friends' set since I recieved it last week, and today was finally the day.

I started with a base of Always Artichoke then added a layer of Mellow Moss. I stamped the branch image from the set down one side in Mellow Moss and the main image stamped those branches in Artichoke. The frame is stamped in Always Artichoke onto some Whisper White and the butterfly is in Rose Red. I used the senitment from the same set, only I used my marker to colour the 'friend' only before I stamped it onto another branch, then cut it out and used a couple of dimensionals to pop it all up. I also used some Rose Red Wide Ribbon and some Mellow Moss Grosgrain.

Hope you like, and thanks for stopping by.
Hopefully my MOJO will be back in full swing tomorrow and I'll get a whole heap of stamping done.... FINGERS CROSSED.
