... dear ... love ...

Here is my entry for this week's Crafts 4 Eternity recipe challenge. Do enter as there is a fab digi stamp up for grabs.

The ingredients are:

The sketch.

Use an inking technique.

Use fabric.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:

'cut it out and pop it up': Craft Creations Challenge. I have done this with my image.

'clean & simple': Saturday Spotlight. This is clean and simple for me as I didn't want to cover up the yummy papers with lots of fussy stuff.

'at least 3 different textures': Crazy 4 Challenges. I have the raised image, metal snap and flowers with sequin centres.

Papers: Webster's Pages ~ Postcards from Paris: Belle Rose and La Boutique de Jardin.

I cut out the elaborate scroll frame and inked the edges with gold as I did with the outer edges of the card too. The lines on the scroll frame represent the horizontal strips on the sketch.

I added mini fabric flowers with sequin centres to the frame. I have no idea where these came from ... a lucky discovery when looking for something else in my stash!


Image: Magnolia ~ Tilda Writing Diary coloured with copics. I love this Tilda and I think she has become my new absolute favourite!

I added another larger fabric flower and used a We R Memory Keepers snap in the centre ... I'm gradually using them up.

Thank you for looking.
