Sketch Saturday - Tim Holtz Style!

Saturday 10 November 2012

Morning Sketchers!

As usual the amazing team over at Sketch Saturday have come up with another fabulous sketch this week:

and here is my DT card - yes I've gone a bit grungy!! I thought I'd have a play with my inks, perfect pearls and Tim Holtz stamps. I fancied something a little bit different and this was the result!

The perfect pearls don't show up very well in the photos but the green leaves on the circle and the butterflies are pearlescent and very pretty when they catch the light.

I'm going to enter this one in a few challenges:
CCEE Stampers - to use a portion of an embossing folder (strip down the middle) 
Do you Stack Up - leaves and trees (leaves in the background and a tree branch)
Ruby's Rainbow - birds

This week's Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and there is a prize on offer so make sure you hop on over and join in!
