Sketch Saturday & Secret Crafter Challenges


Sketch Saturday (38) - Sketch
Secret Crafter (19) - Spring Has Sprung

I seem to be in a 'keep it simple' mood lately so I have kept this card simple. I started by placing a square of backing paper to the card followed by two rectangles in contrasting papers. The images are stamped and coloured with my watercolour pencils and then layered using my Nesties and attached with foam pads. [TIP: When placing one image over another image using foam pads don't put foam pads under the part that will overlap, this will keep it the same height] I finished it off with a flower and button.
