A sketch with a twist........

I really enjoyed making this creation. I was getting a little fed up with the Valentines cards so thought i would just try a different take on it whilst following a sketch,


Here i have decorated a gift box, although silly little me hasn't shown that in the piccie...doh! .....I have used a gorgeous stamp from Lili of the Valley and coloured it using Promarkers and Prismapencils. By using bazzil cardstock and paper from Papermania i have been able to add layers. I also had some some lovely heart vine stamps which i used to stamp around the edges on the sides and the back of the box. On the back i have added some white mesh and a ornate die cut to add a sentiment if needed. I have also distressed the box with Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. The gorgeous white crushed silk ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts and i have now used it all up on this creation. I have added the twist of making a separate bookmark style tag....hopefully it meets the requirements of the sketch challenge.


I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:

2. Rainbow Ladys Challenge  - Have a Heart.
3. Fussy and Fancy Challenge - With all my heart
4. Crafting when we can Challenges - Valentine/Love
