Sketch 21 at Sketch Saturday

A very happy Saturday to you all again! It is time for another Sketch Saturday with another amazing design by the lovely Jo! This week I've been busy making my first sketch for a Design Team member week (that's a mouth full) in the future and I've got to tell you... my respect for this lady grew to an even higher level in the process. You've got to admire how she just keeps coming up with these amazing sketches each week! You are amazing Jo!!! Well, here is what Jo came up with for this week: I loved working with this sketch. I got to play with one of my new Whiff of Joy stamps, did some 3D which I just love to do, used my Copics along with my Derwent pencils for the first time (I handn't used them together before) and this is how it turned out:

Another picture with shadows which shows the 3D better:

And another one for the glittery accents:

One from the inside with a little insert of the sentiment:

And, finally :), the back of the card:
Materials used:
Willow with Umbrella by Whiff of Joy stamps
Sentiment and background from the
Elisabeth Bell Accessories & Sentiments Collection by Whiff of Joy
Copic Markers, Derwent Watercolour Pencils and Sakura pens for the colouring and doodles
Bella Liquid Watercolour Glitter by Stamping Bella on top of the umbrella for a lovely shine
And papers are all from my box of scrap papers
I know you shouldn't be to pleased with yourself but I love this card. And since I wasn't satisfied with my card last week (although all your lovely comments did kinda make me feel better :) ) I think it's OK if I'm happy this week, sort of brings things back in balance ;). Hope you like it too and can't wait to see what you guys come up with.
In the meantime, don't forget to check out the gorgeous cards my fellow Design Team members made. Don't you just love them. At this moment I have only seen them in the 'sneak peek section', since it's Friday night when I type this and the cards will not be published until Saturday of course, but I myself can't wait to see some of the techniques these guys have been using. Just to name a couple, have you seen those backgrounds in Gill's and Jeanette's cards! Love those! And those flowers on Jo's card... need to know where she got those. And my dear friend Coco's card with those gorgeous 3D balls in the tree.... I could go on and on but you'll just have to check all of them out yourself. So join me in checking out their blogs and I'll try to visit as many of you as I can in the next couple of days. Have a great day and take care!!!!

  11. Mariska,

    Hi again. I just loved the comment you made on my blog this week about my stories, and ramblings along with my cards and Stampations I share!

    I just read your profile. I did not realize you are in the Netharlands. My Husband is Half Dutch his Mom is full blooded Dutch. His Mom and dad are coming to the Netharlands for the first time next spring for the Tulips Festival and to see where she came from! She is super excited.

    I love your card and your choice of stamps! I see several of you on the DT use stamps of that little girl/teenager. Where do you get them? I like them!
