TWO PROJECTS USING THE SAME SKETCH

I was looking through the Challenge lists and I came across a sketch over at SATURDAY SKETCHES that I fancied having a play with.

I also had a go at making a Heart Rosette after watching a video done by my friend Fiki - BAD KITTY. :-)

Here's my first  project which uses my surprise Prize image I made especially for HOLLEY's celebration for 2017 - she is 7 years healthy now. Full deets can be read HERE.
I made her mouth a little smaller as someone had commented and said it was "too large + distracting"  !!





I used a backing paper from the " I Love You " set from FAR FAR HILLS, and I made my own ' I'm A Winner' backing paper for the triangles. I coloured up my image and then I added a heart Rosette as demonstrated by Fiki :-)  Whilst I was watching her video on YouTube, I happened to spy something on the right-hand side and afterwards I went and found out how to make this...............


It was demonstrated by a lady called Sheshe Crafts and there was a free PDF pattern to cut out and then fold for this little critter. I wound it with floral wire and used the end for his antennae and made a paper body.


My second project using this sketch is this one.
It is the BOX TOP for the collection of cards I am sending to the Pawprints donation scheme.


I have always had a ' soft spot ' for Westies and had the good fortune to know a very sweet one for many years - she has sadly now passed away :-(
This little one is called  "Valentine Westie" from DELICIOUS DOODLES, but I think he is no longer available - I have had him for years now, since I used to work for DD on their DT. I coloured him with Promarkers and gave him a Tartan bow, since he is from Scotland and I left his rose white for Scotland too.
I used a heart border punch for the two pieces of red card and made another of the Heart Rosettes Fiki showed me, this one using Tartan paper.

Well Folks, I am not sure if I will have anything else done tonight, so I'll say bye for now :-) xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  3. I LOVE that Holley stamp!! It is SO fun and I can think of so many ways to use it - in fact, it looks like me after my first (ahem) wedding LOL I so so relived to have the whole thing over, so I could relax, I made very similar gestures and I have a pic of my mouth open, just like that, on the altar. What did I know?? Both of your cards are beautiful as always xoxo Christi

  6. I agree two great cards! I wanted to say how wonderful it was to hear about Holley's miracle! It's always fantastic to hear when someone beats the odds. We're given 1 day at a time and should enjoy that day before concerning ourselves about the next. (Easier said than done) I'm sure she was thrilled. I love your ideas for the sketches and think it's always fun to see how people interpret them. Good Going!!
