2 Sketches 4 You

This week it was Kazan's turn to upload the sketch on the 2 Sketches blog last Monday (I know, I'm late again!)

The stamp was a freebie from a magazine stamped with black Versamark and coloured with ProMarkers. I added Diamond Glaze to his nose and heart to give it a bit of dimension! (This card also fits the new DCM dare but as I made it yesterday I shall be honest and make a new one. Not hard as I have to make some more Valentine cards for one of my shops!) The ribbon isn't striped it is a pice of red tied together with a piece of black. They are both from my stash. The strips of paper are Basic Grey paisley but I don't know which collection it's from!
A friend has had a foot op and is housebound for a while so I thought I would make her a card to cheer her up and this is what I came up with.

The scalloped card is from Craftwork Cards the 'pot and pouffe' were hand cut and took blooming ages :) I cut two rectangles for the pouffe and pleated the piece for the frill, attached it with DS tape and ran a piece of velvet ribbon across the middle to hide the join. The paper is K & Co. The 'pot' was made by cutting a foot from scrap card and wrapping it with strips of copier paper. I added a few diamantes for a bit of bling and the sentiment was printed directly onto the card.

I had better get some more catching up done now :)
