Keeping It Real!

This is my 2nd post for today, please scroll down to see my Willow Sketchie & pop back later to see my Delightful Challenges creation! Hugs xx

This week over at MAWTT we have a fab challenge for you

KEEP IT REAL!

so no fantasy images or none living things!! So what did I do for my card lololol!! I did use one of my fab new Humphrey stamps to start with, then realised a dressed up elephant is fantasy! So this is what I came up with in the end!


I just loved this set of stamps as soon as I saw them on my first visit to the NEC about 3 years ago!!

Challenges I Would Like To Enter
Seems A Little Sketchy- great sketch
Wish Craft- waste not (stamp is about 3 years old & only the second time I've used him!)

Goodies I Have Used
Image & Sentiment- 'Cats 1' by Lindsey Mason from Personal Impressions
5" square card blank
Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Cat- umber, caramel & sandstone
Ground- champagne & light fawn

Papers & Embellishments
DP- 'Fat Cat Collage' by Karen Foster
Blue card by Kodak
Colour distressing done using Tim Holtz tumbled glass
Ribbon my stash
Fish bones & paw print stickers by Karen Foster

This week we are sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts with a £15 voucher....what a fab prize!!!


Thank you for stopping by today, please pop over & see what fab creations my teamies have made for this 'keeping it real' challenge!

Aw this is so cute and that is from someone that doesn't like cats lol. But the image captures that cat perfectly and the papers and stickers work brilliantly.
