Sketch Challenge for The Crafts Meow

It's The Craft's Meow's 1st birthday (Happy Birthday!) today and there are some celebrations going on over at their blog with a few challenges too!  You can find their blog HERE. I decided to give the sketch a go.


What I personally love about these types of sketches is that you don't have to change anything, you can just play along with it as is, simply alter what you put in that circle!  So that's what I did, I substituted the circle for this gorgeous fairy!

Paper:cardstock (PTI - Smokey Shadow); Patterned paper(MME)
Ink:Versafine Onyx Black & Smokey Grey
Stamps:TCM(Butterfly Kisses & Sent With Love)
Other:ribbon (gift from Ellen Hutson); PTI die for sentiment label; twine (The Twinery)

Easy peasy, clean and simple.  I added some dimensional squares behind the sentiment piece as well as the fairy.

See if you can find time to play, even if you don't have any stamps made by them they are offering two free digi stamps, all you need to do is Like them on Facebook, (and for those flower lovers, it's a very pretty flower stamp!).

My blog may be quiet for the next two days as my MIL is visiting.  But I'll see you again soon!
