Sketch time again!

Good day!

It has been almost 4 months since my last post. We finally have moved, though we are still pending between the houses, but at least I have my craft room in my new home, unpacked and ready to play. Discovered some old stuff and got rid of stuff that I have not used since I bought it ages ago. 

With the new sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 it is time to unpack your creativity. We have some fabulous examples from the DT. We have twist too of autumn, thanksgiving and Halloween, is you want to play with something extra. 

I played mainly with the autumn colours, since we do not celebrate Halloween in South Africa and we are at the start of a lovely spring!

For the first sketch I used an image from Pattie's creation and it was coloured sometime ago with my Prismacolor pencils and I added some accent gloss on the vase to look like water. I used papers from my stash with an embossing folder called "Turkish Delight" from Couture Creations for the leaves. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Pattie's Creations #198 - Anything goes
Can you handle the pressure - Anything goes with twist of leaves
Stamping sensations - All things Autumn
Sheepski Design #67 - Autumn things

This was also an image, from Bugaboo, that I have printed ages ago and quickly coloured it up. I took the inspiration from the dotted paper in the background for the colours. I always need boy cards, some how.

Challenges I'm joining:
Crafty Catz #608 - Use blue somewhere
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Happy Everything

In the process of moving I had a day with my husband in Johannesburg. While he had his meetings I took some time of and spend it in one of my favourite craft shops. There I bought some sentiment stamps. Something I haven't done in ages. So for this project I used one of my new dies and stamps. I used some heat embossing with some glitter on the sentiment. I added a dragonfly and fairy die cut. These lovely papers from my stash remind me of the last roses and warm colours of summer / beginning fall. I used the bottom part of a heart die to great the triangle and for the second triangle - left in the corner - I used the rose corner die and fairy. 

Challenges I'm joining:
Crafty Friends - Use more than 1 die
Double D  - Octoberfest
Let's Craft and create #188 - AG with twist of fall colours

Thank you and hope you enjoy whatever season you are experiencing!
Hugs from Africa!

Three sweet cards. Your sunflower image with the autumnal colours on your Design Papers is a great take on that sketch and your pretty colour palette works for our Autumn challenge even though you are heading into spring! Thank you for joining in the fun at Stamping Sensations with this pretty card. Hugs, Lesley
