Sketch & Sparkle !!

Hi Everyone
This is the second and last post for this week. I love sketches they are my favourite challenges so I am entering this  at Just Magnolia Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge - Week 107. I chose this gorgeous Tilda from The Butterfly Dreams Collection. There are so many stamps to choose from it is difficult to pick one lol !

I have coloured her with prismacolor pencils blended with sansador. I have added Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist to her and edged with stickles platinum for lots of sparkle and shine which is this weeks challenge for Simon Says Stamp .

I have left this a topper for now . The colours are more vivid than in the picture. I tried to colour her very lightly to compliment the darker papers.
I hope you like the crazy stitching I think I used a wrong bobbin and it came out like this on one side but I quite liked the effect lol !
I would also like to enter this into the paperplay challenges - week 20 Sparkle Galore

Recipe -
Cardstock - Bo Bunny & Bazzill basics.
Medium - Prismacolor pencils blended with sansador stamped with mommento black ink on 240gsm white card. Distress inks for background for Tilda
Tools - Tim Holtz Keyhole die which I cut out & Wings . Sewing Machine. Cuttlebug
Embellishments - WOC flowers. Half back pearls from Ebay. Anita Butterfly glitter butterfly sticker which I distressed. Stickles platinum & Tattered Angels gold glimmer mist.

I noticed this week another blog with virtually the same card as I have posted on here before ! I was quite pleased in a way because someone liked my idea but also a bit disappointed !! Just as well it's only a hobby . I think it's okay to get ideas and do your own take on it but a whole card is cheeky ! I just sell some items on ebay to buy more crafting goodies. What do you think crafters ?

Thanks for visiting have a great week.

  3. Kitty to copy someones work shows a distinct lack of imagination. We all feed off each others ideas that's how we grow but most of us give credit where credit is due. Blatant copying of someone else's work is despicable!!! I feel better now (LOL)
    Tour card is gorgeous, love your colours and Tilda is fabulous 0 one of my current favourites!!
    Pets - love 'em to bits but then can drive us to distraction. Watch that dog!!!!

    Sorry to hear you are being copied thats terrible we are all here to inspire each other but thats all it is...inspire....the one thing we shouldn't do is copy someone's card, I have & never will do it its hjust not right at all.
