Avid book reader!

OMG, I hear you say. Surely I haven't managed to make two cards, two day's in a row?!! I enjoyed making yesterday's card so much that I made another card before I went to bed last night! Thank goodness for sketches - halves my creative thinking time so I can make a card in an hour!

This time I've used Wild Sprout Annika and all I could think of was was tweed and chintz! Not normally the elements I tend to go for, but for some very strange reason I just love this little lady. Even with her totally over-sized head - she looks like she's going to topple over any minute, but I still think she's adorable!! What is that about?!!!

Anyway...sorry...gone off on a rant there. Here she is...

I've used
Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge #59 below and gorgeous BasicGrey Wisteria. I've also started using Copic Premium Seriously Smooth White Cardstock (bought from Sir Stampalot) - this is seriously amazing! I found blending and lack of bleeding helped my colouring in skills no end!
I found the sketch really hard to do, even though it's the most simplest I've used. Trying to keep it interesting was a real challenge and I ended up making a vintage looking flower to go with that chintzy paper - I think I like it, but it needs something else, can't think what though!

Back to real work (that helps me pay for my crafting addiction). Have a great weekend everyone!

Papers/cardstock: BasicGrey Wisteria, Sir Stampalot's Copic Premium Seriously Smooth White Cardstock (this is seriously amazing!)
Stamps: TGF WS Annika, Tgf sentiment (can't remember from which set though!)
Mediums: Copic Caios, Distress Ink Antique Linen, Memento Tuxedo black ink
Accents: Papermania pearls, BasicGrey button, Bazzill ivory floss
Tools: Nestabilities classic square die, EK Success nesting scallop punches
