Woodware challenge - Thank you

While you are sitting comfortably on the sofa and having eaten your
Christmas dinner, get some white card, Sakura Stardust pens and create some doodly thank you cards. Its a great way to relax!!

If you can't create your own hand draw letters as I have done here then type the
words out on your computer and trace them onto your card.

The Sakura micron pens are perfect for this job. I've used number 08 and 04 to draw
the letter outlines, flowers and dots, all the other doodles are drawn with or
coloured in with Sakura Stardust pens.

Woodware challenge - Inchies

Woodware do a great selection of square punches which all nest together.
The 1" punch which I have used here is yellow.
I have stamped onto white card with black and clear embossed the stamp JGS338 geometric leaves and inked over. Then splattered with thin bleach to give the little white dots. Once dry, I have punched eight squares and inked the edges with a brown ink.
Adding avocado liquid pearls and a greeting to finish it off
using JGS 324 in the frame ditties.

Woodware challenge - sketch 40

The nice thing about circles is that you can tilt them and have the image
in any position unlike a square.

Here I have stamped onto white card using JGS333 cow parsley with green and black inks.
Then with a blue, green and small orange circle punches, punch out your images.
The greeting is from JGS364 mini messages.
The background stamp on the left of the card is from a range by Clearsnap.
This one is called Botanical no 69430


here is the sketch
