I finally managed to sneak into the craft room for some 'me time', I was very good and got a lot of other stuff done first after I'd dropped my little cherub off, I'd had her Friday and Saturday night to give my Mum a good break, they have both been very sick with a cold virus, Mum is still coughing after more than a week and two lots of antibiotics later.
Not creating for a couple of weeks was making my fingers itch and I'm sure I've developed a nervous tic! LOL just joking.
As I was Blurfing (blog surfing) to find inspiration I came across a lovely sketch that just spoke to me about embossed textures and then the colour combo of Perfect Plum, Always Artichoke and a neutral had me sold.......LOL yes I know I really didn't have to look too hard or far. I've used Naturals Ivory here and sponged the base card with Always Artichoke.
I've also taken this opportunity to use one more of those stunning dragonflies, glass and diamonte and they just reflect so much light, they are beautiful, although the photo doesn't do them justice. I've also added a little bit of Fine Cosmo glitter to the raised polka dots to provide just a tiny bit more bling on this card.
I love this sketch but haven't done the cutsey images as I don't have many of those stamps in my collection just yet and I'm still working on developing my technique, so I hope I'm forgiven for putting in something a bit different on the challenge.
