Sketch and Stash Challenge ,,, Becky's Sketch :-)

Happy Monday everyone ,, hope you all had a lovely weekend and are now looking forward to a week of crafting :-)

This fortnight Becky has made a fabulous sketch for us to follow :-) Simple circles !! :-)

We are being sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp Superstore,, so a fabulous prize of a $20 spending spree on offer !! :-)

Now ,,, I got a bit mixed up with my weeks !! For the last challenge we were sponsored by Meljen ,,, and I used a HM stamp, tho I did make a Meljen card too ,,, and this week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and I used Meljen images !! oops !! :-) I didn't have time to make 2 cards for this week !

Anyway ,, I am really happy with how this card turned out :-) The scuba bear image is very cute and I also used an ocean floor backround stamp, both from Meljen :-) These images are both new and given to me by Meljen,,, thanks xx
I coloured the image with copics and chalked the background with pearlescent chalks. the paper is from Craft Creations and I also used whitewash blue coredinations. I used a Martha Stewart icicle punch ,, I thought it could pass for seaweed ! and the fish charm and ribbon were in my drawer :-) The sentiment is a large background Inkadinkado one which is rarely used and neglected,, I just used a little bit of it The shells were in my bathroom and came in handy to set the scene !! :-)


Just Cute Bears ,,,,,,,,'Decoupage' the bear is decoupaged !! :-)

Allsorts ,,,,,, Create a scene
