Sketch & Stash Challenge #6

Look at my lovely new stamps! The daisy and poppy butterfly stamp plates are from Graphicus, they are new Elusive Images stamps. These are the rest of the stamps I got with my Cheltenham winnings, there are so many ideas in my head for projects to make with these images :).
It seemed a good idea to use them for this week's Sketch & Stash Challenge. I couldn't decide which stamp to choose, so I ended up making two cards. The poppy one doesn't exactly fit the sketch though; I've not added a sentiment so that I can add an appropriate one when I send the card.
Both stamped with timber brown Stazon, coloured with watercolour pencils and some highlights added with Stickles. The papers are from my Graphicus Guild membership pack, apart from the scarlet/gold on the poppy, which is glimmer misted paper. The butterfly is stamped onto the background and then onto a matching paper, cut round and stuck on with a small foam pad.


  1. Brilliant card Anne, great take on the sketch!

    Love Becky xx

  4. Gorgeous cards Anne... the red and green is my fave!

  5. You rocked the sketch my friend. Both cards are incredibly fab! I tried to order some elusive images but goodness at $20 shipping I just had to refrain, as much as I love them :-( Viv liked the red & green and my fave is the top one. So you see you appealed to all of us. And yes. I do not feel my age at all, at least mentally. I think I am still 20 something and wish I could fit into that size 4 pants again. Alas no. bummer eh.

  6. Beautful. I love the way you have coloured the diamonds.

    I think I need this plate - LOL!

    Love Anne E x
