Card Sketch August #1

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

This weeks card sketch is one I made to give us chance to use up scraps, and dig into supplies! I had fibres and eyelets in mind when I made this sketch. I don't know about you but I have TONS of both of these and hardly ever use them! The digital template is available free in my digital store for a limited time! Snag it while you can!


As you can see I was playing with the 3 bugs papers when I made a start on this sketch. The brown paper is by Boxer and has a leather look to it. Even though this has a flower on it I think it has a masculine feel to it. Still using up the stash - these fasteners have been in my stash a long time (as have the rub-ons), and the fibres are AGES OLD!
