The Craft's Meow Blog Hop (Sketch)

Sunday, April 21, 2013


Welcome to The Craft's Meow Blog hop, today's hop is inspired by this great sketch by NinaB Designs. The full list of blog participants can be found on The Craft's Meow blog.


The flower and leaf stamps are from the Happiness Is stamp set. I stamped them onto patterned paper and added some shading with Distress Markers. I really love this technique, it's a great one to try if you're not too keen on a lot of coloring.


The sentiment is from Geometric Foundations and the patterned paper is from the Rosarian Collection by Prima. The Caribbean Twine is from SRM Stickers.

  3. So often we hop along and use the word "beautiful" so much it loses its meaning. I am going to use it for this card. It's so beautiful I wish I had created it myself. It's just ... beautiful!
