Week 43 at Sketch Saturday

Hello dear stamping buddies!!

I can't believe a whole week has gone by since my last post. Saturday already!! I haven't had much time to craft this week, I did do one card with the new Pink Cat Studio stamps that will be released on March 26th. Sneak peeks won't start until Tuesday the 24th though so can't show you that one. What I can show you though is this brilliant sketch my friend Jo made for you over on Sketch Saturday!!
All squares but I checked and it is perfectly OK to change some of the squares into other shapes... and I am very glad about that because if it wouldn't have been OK I would have to alter my finished card :). I used a digi-download that was created by my Design Team friend Sandra Dry. Sandra has opened her own digi-shop Sandra Dry Digi-Stamps and her first designs are these gorgeous fairies. I have used Rosabella & Ladybug:

Rosabella's wings just have to be glittered I think, with the gorgeous swirls. I first outlined the swirls with a blue sakura pen and then painted the rest of the wings with water and the ink of the pen. Afterwords I added a nice coat of stickles. Rosabella's clothes are also sparkly thanks to a sakura pen and I have added Heidi Swap gems and black stickle drops instead of the squares on the sketch.

The papers are black velvet paper from Doodlebug, black cardstock and red cardstock from stash and old Daisy D's paper. The image was coloured with my Derwent Watercolour Pens and my Copics. I hope you like my card :).
Be sure to check out my Design Team friends blogs, and this week we have a new guest designer and Gill has asked the oh so talented Dawn to join us this week and next week and she has kindly agreed. I haven't seen Dawns card for this week yet as I type this blogmessage but I love everything Dawn creates so I'm sure it is going to be stunning. Welcome to the team Dawn!!
Now, it's up to you. Join us this week at Sketch Saturday!! And if the inspiration of Jo's fantastic sketch isn't enough for you... there is another price to be won!! This week is sponsored by Dream2Stamp and they are offering some incredibly cute stamps to one lucky participant. Check out the blog for further details!!
Have a fantastic weekend everybody and see you back on Tuesday for the sneak peeks of the new Pink Cat Studio releases!!
