It's (Sketch) Saturday again!!!

A very good Saturday to you all,

And this week it is Design Team week at Sketch Saturday so my fellow Design Team member Gill made this wonderful sketch:

Doesn't that activate your creative bodycells? And to make things even better, Gill also offers a super prize to one lucky entry to celebrate her upcoming birthday and her first ever DT post. She is offering a wonderful stamp by Whiff of Joy, and you know I love those!!! So be sure to check it out and enter!!

I myself loved working with this one and I am absolutely going to be using it again. Here is the card I made for this week:

Materials used:
The stamped image I received from somebody but I don't know who anymore and I don't know what it's called or which company made it (if you do, please let me know)
The papers are from Daisy Bucket Designs
The sentiment is from Elzybells (see link on the right)
The flowers are Prima's from stash
Ribbon is from Making Memories Kids Trims
Brads are from Making Memories
Coloured with my brand new Copic Markers :)
Glimmer accents are coloured with Sakura Gelly Rolls
White accents are Sakura Souffle
Cardstock is from stash
Ink used to stamp sentiment and edges of papers VersaMagic Chalk Ink Ocean Depth

It's not how I usely make cards, I like working with layers and I always use my Derwent Watercolour pencils but I'm trying to get the hang of working with my new Copics and this image is the first one I was satisfied about. Please feel free to give pointers on how to use the markers, I have been blog-hopping and have been practicing but I know I'm still in the learning stages :). Thank you for checking out my blog and thank you for any comments you may wish to leave me.

  3. Great card. It caught my eye straight away. I'm still learning how to use markers. Have not been brave enough to post any of my attempts yet. So I'm looking for advise too.
