Sketches and Chipboard!



Another great sketch this week at Sketch Saturday and Basic Grey we have to use chipboard.

It's funny but sometimes you think you have plenty of one thing then you realise you don't - Chipboard ahh! yes have got loads of bits and bobs of that - WRONG - Oooh! I struggled to find some that went with this card - Guess what's next on the crafty list!! EEk!!

My papers are from the BG Archaic range and I used a chocolate chipboard tag and some half moon chipboard pieces, The owl image is coloured with watercolours and I highlighted him with a Sakura clear glitter pen, he really is quite sparkly but it doesn't show very well here.

Hi Dawn,
This is lovely, great colours, I zoomed in & you can see the glittery owl - gogeous.
Thanks for your comment on my OCC card. I've got to have Braveheart as well, where he has disappeared to heaven only knows. Top priority - organise clear stamps!!! If I find himm I'll let you know and whip you up some images.
