Sweet Sketch Wednesday #45 ' TULIPS'


Good morning everyone and we have another wonderful morning here in New Zealand. Well the boys and I are off to have a few Luge rides down a mountain. Unfortunately my dear hubby can't make it as he is really busy at work.
Firstly I would like to thank Arlana from Sweet Sketch Wednesday for such a wonderful sketch. As soon as I saw the sketch I new what Image I was going to use. This is one of the images I coloured whilst at the beach house over the Easter break. All I had to do was match my papers which I knew I would have these colours. While I was looking I came across the Purple and Olive Green variegated paper I bought about two years ago for a card and have never used it, as you do. Well I've got the right design and colours for this paper. I must say this card went together so easily and quick and I am so happy with the finished product I think it looks really pretty, even if I say so myself.
Card Recipe.
  • White SU card for the base
  • Purple and Olive Green Bazzill
  • Mauve and White stripped paper from Craft Creations, Olive Green and White patterned paper from Magnolia and the wonderful Olive Green and Purple variegated shimmer paper I know was American sorry I don't know the brand.
  • The image is Tulip Bowl from our wonderfully talented Chris Dark at Sketching Stamper. Chris I just love your images to colour. Tulip's coloured with Copic's and a White Glaze pen.
  • Cuttlebug and Nestabilities Classic Circle and Scalloped Circle.
  • Lace cut with lace template unaware of the brand and I have used the Olive Green and Purple variegated paper for this.
  • Ribbon and Gems from my stash.
Thank you so much for looking and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. My boys are having their first game of Soccer for the season.

Hi ya Kathie! WOW! Gorgeous colouring, your shading is lovely and you even did underneath the leaves and flowers overhanging the pot. Great attention to detail and such a very pretty card. The only thing I would mention and it's really, really nit picking is may be go over the flowers once more with the lightest colour, but really it's so good as it is. Hope you're well and talk to you soon, hugs, Chris x
