Cuttlebug - Be Inspired No 20

ST837945

ValerieSalmon-sketch

Cuttlebug Challenge this week has a brilliant sketch by Valerie Salmon.

I really enjoyed this sketch - lots of distressing and inking, Papers are from Melissa Frances and All my Memories. I embossed down the side in reverse with my Cuttlebug edging strip then highlighted it with a bronze Sakura pen to make it look a little like stitching. The sentiment is embossed and inked.

Added some Tim Holtz sprockets and tags. Flowers are a mixture from my stash. There is also a rub-on at the bottom but you can hardly see it!! Grr!!

I like the wording on this, and you seem to be back to your original style again. There is so much to see in your cards and the techniques are plenty.

This card is gorgeous Dawn! I love the colour scheme! (Thanks for your comment! The card template came with a seperate sheet, one with a shape the same size as the card and another slightly smaller - I'd love to say I was really clever and drew it myself!) xx
