2 sketches and Friday Sketchers



Managed a couple of challenge cards last night. The first one is for the sketch challenge over at 2 sketches 4 you The sketch is #12 by Laura and was fun to play with :) The paper is from the vintage floral set by Dovecraft as is the tag and sticky ribbon. ric rac from tesco and brads from stash. Doodles with a sepia glitter gel pen.


The second card is for the challenge at Friday sketchers. The pirate paper is wrapping paper (hence the slight shine on the photo) that I bought to wrap a present the other day. I had originally intended to 3d the pirate but do you think I could find a foam pad in the house? No way no how lol. Sadly we no longer have a craft shop in the village so I couldn't even go and get some today :( I still quite like it as it is though, the string is supposed to look like rope but of course I don't know any knots so just tied a half bow, bit more doodling and a home made life ring and it was done.
