Sketch N Stash 78 - My Sketch

Hi all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! For my first post of 2012, It's time for another Sketch N Stash challenge. This fortnight the sketch is designed by little 'ole me ...

I hope you like it! For my card I have used Heather Ellis' Mouse In The House no14 image, printed it from PC and coloured with Copic Markers. I have then cut the image with a circle Nestabilities die and added to the base with 3D adhesive squares. The base is made from DB Swimming Pool Swiss Dots paper {old stash} mounted to DB Swiming Pool CS and then to a white card blank. I have then cut a PTi Double Ended Banner Die from DB Pistachio CS and stamped with the Elzybells greeting. This has been added to the circle with my ATG. I have then threaded a DB Lily White Boutique Button with MME Lime Twist Twine and added this to the side. Finsihed off with DB Mini Jewels.

STAMPS: Heather Ellis, Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. COPICS: N0, N1, N2, R20, BG10, BG11, BG13, BG15, W0, W2, Blender Pen. CS/PAPER: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. TOOLS: Nestabilities, Papertrey Ink Dies. EMBELLISHMENTS: Doodlebug Designs Button, My Minds Eye Twine, Doodlebug Designs Mini Jewels.

This fortnight we are sponsered by Heather Ellis who is kindly giving away 3 digi images of the winners choice. Please go visit my teamies cards, they are gorgeous and I hope you can play along with my sketch.
