The Sensations

Challenges

Dutch Dare (46) - Sketch

Cute Card (58) - Mirror, Mirror

Daring Cardmakers - Old Macdonald's Farm

The Pink Elephant (13) - Circles & Scallops

Creative Card Crew (9) - Everyone Emboss

I've had to enlarge the sketch so that I could fit the image in as it is rather large. It's coloured as usual with my pencils, I'm not much good at watercolouring. The silver mirri board and white strip are embossed with the cuttlebug and I rounded the corners. There are scallops around the image and at the bottom of the black card. I punched circles of card and stuck buttons on top to finish off.

Card Recipe

Stamp - Penny Black

Paper - Monti's Pixel Papers

Buttons - Stash

Thanks for looking.
