~BLOOM~

Hi there friends,

It's time for a new Deconstructed Sketch.

It's been a super-busy week so far for me so i have no colouring to share.

I hope you like my card anyway....


The sentiment and papers are all from Pebbles, which made my card come together quickly and easily since they all match.

Here is Jen's fab sketch for the week....


Make sure you pop on over to check out the other DT girls for more inspiration.


I hope you have time to play along this week.

Thanks for stopping by, 

Hugs,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my HUBBY

Hi there friends.

It's time for a new DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH

Hubby celebrated his Birthday this week, and I am well known for neglecting him on the card front.

So I made it my mission to surprise him with a handmade card, even though masculine cards are really not my strong point.

Here is my card....


I've used this cool MR Fixit digital image from Mo's digital pencil, which can be found to purchase HERE

The image is printed on Xpress It cardstock, and coloured with copic markers.

I've added grungy stamping, denim, string, cogs and screws to finish off the masculine look.

Here is Jen's fab sketch......


Make sure you pop on over to check out the other DT girls for more inspiration.


I hope you have time to play along this week.

I am going to enter my card in Mo's May challenge HERE

Hello dear friend

Hi there friends.

To celebrate passing the 200 sketch milestone over at THE DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH, we are each choosing our favourite sketch this week out of all 200.

Since I really love colouring, I like sketches with a large area to color on, so I have chosen one of the earliest sketches, DS19.

I hope you like my card.....


I have used a cute new Saturated Canary image called BAKER. She can be found in Krista's shop HERE.

COPIC COLORS
Skin-  E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E04

I think I may have used sketch 19 a long time ago. I'll see if I can dig out the card I made. Hopefully  my coloring and card making skills have improved since then.

DS#200 ~FOR MUM~

Hi there friends.
This week over at THE DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH, we are celebrating our 200th sketch. 

Big congrats to Jen, our awesome leader on such a milestone.

To celebrate I've made a card for my dear Mum as Mother's Day is this Sunday here in Australia.

I hope you like my card.....


The image is "FLOWERS 4U" by Mo Manning and can be found in her shop HERE.

She is printed onto Xpress cardstock and coloured in copic markers.

COPICS USED
Skin- E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, E04
Freckles-  E13
Hair-  E41, E43, E44, E47, E49
Pants-  B00, B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Top and flowers-  R20, R22, R24, R27, R29

Flowers-  YR30, YR21, YR23, Y28, Y17
Pot-  YR02, YR14, E08, E09.

I used a little Pan pastel color on her cheeks, hoping for the rosy look, however little did I know that the brand new makeup applicator that I used was full of a black dust of some sort! (Hence the rather dark left cheek)

Anyhow, here's Jen's fabulous sketch.....

DS199 ~HAPPY BIRTHDAY~

Having recently returned, fresh from a little getaway, I have a new sketch for you today.

I hope you like my card.....


I've used dies from Memory Box and MFT stamps. The sentiment is also from MFT.

Here is Jen's fabulous sketch.

I think I'll make a second card over the weekend having a play with some watercolours too.

12 today (DS197)

Hi there friends.

Well this week has flown by.

Our baby turned 13 yesterday. We now have FOUR teenage girls! YIKES!

Today I have a new  DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH for you.

I haven't used my copics for this one......


The yellow actually is much softer in real life.

I've used lots of MFT dies.

Here is Jen's fab sketch.....



For more inspiration, check out the fabulous work of my team mates below.


I hope you have time to play along this week.
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back with the next challenge in a couple of days.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ~DS196~

Hello friends,

I'm a little late posting this week's DECONSTRUCTED SKETCH

We celebrate two Birthdays in our house this week, and I've used DS196 for my eldest daughter's 19th Birthday card.


I've used the super-sweet new digital image from SATURATED CANARY called BOOK CLUB.

(My eldest girl is quite the bookworm)

BOOK CLUB can be found for purchase HERE

I usually like to use bright papers and embellishments but I fell in love with a new range of Prima patterned paper, which I have used here.

I hope you like my card.

I hope you have time to play along this week.
