This is the March sketch for Craftmad - you can find other peoples take on this sketch in our Pinterest album here.
A couple of lovely ladies have their birthdays in April, so I thought the sketch would help me on my way to creating cards for them. Both love purple and I just had an urge to use orange with it. I found these lovely patterned papers that I thought worked well together to create the background. The flower is made up of a doily which I cut into sections and coloured orange with my copic pens, a fabric flower, paper patterned flower from a packet someone kindly gave me years ago and lastly the yellow flower is flower I crocheted many years ago. All held together with a pearl split pin. Finished the card with gold birthday stickers.
My second card I used the other halves of the patterned paper. Coloured up this new Graphic 45 stamp I received at Christmas time. I think the flowers are meant to be roses but I was thinking blackeyed susans when I coloured them. Finished with a little purple bling in the corners.
Thanks for visiting today.
Hope no-one catches you with an April fools joke. :-)
