DTC #95 - A sketch by Natascha

Happy tuesday everyone!!!
Time for a new challenge over at Digital Tuesday. This week it was Natascha's turn to challenge us and she created a sketch for us to follow.

Of course we have another great sponsor, Stamp Fairy, giving away 3 of their cute digis to one lucky winner. They also generously gave the Design Team a couple of their images to "work" with.

The image I used is called "Thank you". Such a cutie! Of course cute animals are my favorite kind of images!


The image has been printed on my very last scrap piece of couture 80lb card stock. I really need to find another online source for this card stock as I found it was the best paper for digis (no smearing of ink at all with any coloring medium!) I did get some paper recently at a local printing shop, and it is ok too, but not as good as couture.
Anyway, back to the card, the image has been colored with derwent coloursoft and blended with baby oil.
Papers are from my overflowing box of scraps, which means I have no clue who the maker is. Black and Kraft Card stock are from stampin up. I used a couple of prima flowers with buttons and a flourish (tim holtz sizzix die) for embellishments. The sentiment is from the retired SU set "vases in vogue".

Hope you'll decide to play along, don't forget you can now use anything digital on your creations, doesn't have to be a digital image!

Have a great day,
Ellie.

You know, I didn't like this image when I first saw it, but after seeing yours and Anneke's cards, I fell in love with it. It's simply adorable and I love what you did with it. Love the scrolly thing on the side and that ribbon!.
