Papertake Weekly ,,,, Dawny’s Sketch

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all fit and well and ready for come new challenges of the crafty kind :-) I am watching sky news and for those of you in the UK it looks like a day to stay home and dry,,, so a good day to get inky :-)

Before moving on to this weeks challenge we are welcoming Natalie aka NGCards onto the team :-) Welcome aboard Nat :-)

Dawny has made a fab sketch for us to follow this week, :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab $20 voucher on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

I used my very cute Nellie Snellen stamp, this one is called Koetie with Squirrel, isn’t it cute :-) I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. The polka dot paper is from Pink Petticoat and the blue base card was sprayed with a blue marker using my Copic Air Brush. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch, from a PATP snowflake border punch and I used 2 different Cuttlebug folders for the panels. The lovely scrunched white ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and I used a MS Himalayan Snowflake punch and a couple of Hero Arts gems, the sentiment is from a Unity set.

Thanks for looking :-) our GD’s and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the PTW to see them :-) Please leave me a comment before you hop off and I have a 700 followers celebration candy at the top of my blog if you would like to enter :-)
