Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge 9 - Sketch


Hi everyone and here we are at Challenge 9 on Dare U 2 Digistamp, I can't believe how quickly the weeks are going by! We have a lovely sketch to follow this week which was designed by our lovely and talented Donna and I really enjoyed working with it, definitely one to use again in the future. There's wonderful inspiration from the Design Team so I hope you can join us this week.

I've used my Anemone digi stamp which will in the digi shop very shortly and I've coloured it with pencils and then cut out. All the layers are bazzil and canson card, they've been distressed and pierced and faux stitched with a white gel pen on the edges and all the centres have been stamped with a PI swirl stamp with the sparkly version of Versamark. There's also a grid of scoring on the white panel, but it's not showing up at all in the photo. Added the ribbon, some pearls and the die cut sentiment to finish.
