Friday Sketchers Challenge # 35

This is my entry for the Friday Sketchers challenge. This weeks' sketch is shown above and is by Mumur from France. I hope I did it proud.

I started with an 8" x 8" black card added a backing paper I'd designed myself with PSP then a piece of antiqued gold card with a strip of calligraphy paper from a Joanna Sheen pad and a stamped sentiment in Stazon 'Timber Brown' on a piece of distressed parchment paper. The sentiment comes for a set I bought in WH Smith some time ago. The image of the lady which comes from a sheet of Cherry Pie Art Stamps called Plate# 36 'Renaissance' was also stamped on parchment paper with 'Timber Brown' and distressed. It was then mounted on gold mirri card, fancy card from my stash embellished with Cuttlebug swirls and felt flowers by Creative Impressions, mounted on more mirri card and then attached to the base card.

I thought I'd lost this stamp so it was really pleasing to find it and thanks to Murielle for inspiring me to use it!


  1. Beautiful Ali, I love the paper you designed. PSP is a great tool that I haven't used much
