Delicious Diva Sketch Challenge #2


Hi everyone

DDSC2 Diva

How simple is this … but I love it!!! Love the colours … love the layout (courtesy of Delicious Divas) … and was so happy to pull my Garden Whimsy stamp set out again … and have a play!!! (Is it ok to pat myself on the back … like that??? 😀 😉 ) So … like I mentioned … this card was based on the latest Delicious Divas challenge …

Such a cute, simple … but gorgeous sketch … don’t you think??? Why don’t you have a try and submit an entry to Delicious Divas … or send a pic to me and I will post it here???

DDSC2 Diva zI am still a bit of a chicken when it comes to cutting out ovals. I do have a cutter … but so far I haven’t mastered it completely … so … I have cut an oval mask and used that instead! I stuck the mask to the white card using some Dotto to hold it in place. (Just love that Dotto!!!) All the main images (except the phrase & the garden leaves) are “stamped off” … onto scrap paper before stamping onto the card. I love the softer effect … particularly for stamping another image over the top. Hope this inspires you today!!! Happy Stamping!
