MAWTT Challenge #24 - Heidi's Sketch

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all beginning to get into the Xmas spirit. I for one am struggling this year. I am usually running round doing Xmas Fairs at this time of year but decided not to this year.... well it definately is not the same.
Thank you all for your lovely comments last week regarding my sketch... it is so nice to know that I am able to inspire people. We wish we could have given you all a prize, but we did choose Marianne as our GD for the next couple of weeks.
We have some exciting news this week...... we have the lovely girls at Digital-Ink Co sponsoring us & they have given you 2 fab digistamps as this weeks prize. The DT were lucky enough to have been given the same stamps to make our cards with this week & all the girls have done it again with their gorgeous creations. We have to say a big thank you though to Heidi as we had her fabulous sketch & theme of a hidden message to help us along.
Please, please stop by & let the girls know how much their hard work is appreciated.

My card this week has been made using the image Guess Who which is available from Digital-Ink Co. I have coloured her using a mixture of Copics & Promarkers & used Stickles to her hat & liquid pearls to her collar. I used my rectangle Nellies to layer her. In the corners I used flat back pearls, 4 white & 4 coloured with Marsh Green Promarker. The papers on this part of the card are BG Eskimo Kisses. The base of the flower is from Papermania & I edged the petals with Twinklets Diamond Dust. I am so in love with this stuff!!! The centre of the flower is a Prima Pearlescent. The With Love is from my DH Xmas Kit, edged with Stickles. This has all been created onto an acetate cover.

Here is a close up of the flower & image

To create the hidden message the next part of Heidi's sketch has been put onto the main card. The papers are from MME Wonderful Winter. The message is from a HOTP TSV & I used my chalks to colour it. The " 'twas the night" sentiment is again from my DH Xmas Kit.

To finish off the card I added another image to the inside & used the papers from the 2 fronts. I punched 2 holes through the acetate & card & threaded a needle with organza ribbon to tie the layers together. xx Clare x

Pens Used :
Copics : E00, E21, R29, Y00
Promarkers : Ivory, Vanilla, Blush, Pastel Blue, Denim Blue, Marsh Green, Cardinal Red
