The Willow Sketchie Challenge at Craftbubble this week is to make a plain and simple card. NO LAYERS, NO RIBBON, NO BUTTONS, NO FLOWERS, NO NOTHING..just a plain image onto WHITE CARD. I've coloured a Sarah Kay image with pro-markers and then stippled 3 colours of Versacolour ink very lightly on the card, getting darker round the edges. It does seem strange not to add anything, but I was surprised at how much I enjoyed making this card.
I'm a 44 year old mum of 2, a daughter of 19 and a son of 8. I haven't worked since having my daughter as I became ill and was diagnosed with lupus 14 years ago. I wanted a hobby that would take my mind off everything, so crafting was suggested to me. I started in March/April 2008 and have been having fun learning lots of techniques ever since.
