Inspirational Card Sketch 26 this week is a fab sketch by Dawn. Challenge 61 on A Spoonful of Sugar is to use swirls on your project. I stamped a large swirly stamp with black Versafine on a sheet of lime green card from the DCWV Jewel Stack, embossed in black, then cut into 6 equal size squares, then mounted on black card. Manga image is coloured with pro-markers (I had a little accident with the versafine ink pad - I dropped it onto the image after colouring it so I tried to get as much off with an eraser as I could and went over some areas with pms again). Added a stamped sentiment and flower and brad from stash. Added little smudges of black ink around card and swirls.
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.
