Here's my first attempt at the Sketch and Stash Challenge - I like the idea of this challenge blog cos I've got loads of stuff that I've not used yet and I buy stuff all the time (!!!), so it seems like it was made for me!! For my card, I've made an easel card for the first time and, as I'm never one for doing things by halves - and also because of the sketch requirements - I've made a round one. I really love the look of these, so it'll definitely be something that I'll be repeating!! Most of the things on this card are being used for the first time.... the Manga Girl image from Sugar Nellie I bought ages ago but this is the first time I've ever used it and the Basic Grey Ambrosia papers and Daisy Bucket sentiment stamp are both brand new - they were reduced, so I ordered them from The Craft Emporium. I went a bit picture crazy but it's hard to get a good angle with these cards and cos they're dimensional, they can't be scanned in. Overall, I was pretty pleased with the way it turned out - the only thing is, I used Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey distress inks to colour in her tights and I thought the SM would be more orange and the WH more yellow, but they're virtually the same colour - a small issue though! I'd really love to know what you think of it!
