DU2DS Challenge 43 - Sketch


Hi everyone, we have a new challenge on Dare U 2 Digistamp today and a lovely sketch to follow created by Donna so thanks Donna I loved working with it. There's some gorgeous inspiration as always from my DT friends so I hope you can join us.

I've used some lemon core'dinations card embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, Scenic Route paper and some hessian wide ribbon for the layers of the sketch. My geese digi image is coloured with copic markers and everything is decorated with pearl pens, stickles, faux stitching, sponging and some die cut leaves. Have a good Friday, nearly the weekend!
