I'm on a roll........maybe I should buy a lottery ticket

Evening Everyone
I seem to be having a really good week at the moment, I have just won over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.
I used the stamp that I won for my entry to the Woodware October Sketch challenge so it would seem appropriate that my entry tonight uses the new Woodware Sketch for November.
My entry has been made using a wonderful clear stamp set by Artemio called Hedgerow Plants 10001147 available from any Woodware stockist. I bought mine from Davina in Purley.

I have stamped and embossed my images onto white card stock and then cut it out using an oval Grand Nestie. While the die is still in place I have sponged ink from a Kaleidacolor Creole Spice inkpad having first added a circular mask. Once you have finished sponging remove the mask and add a little colour without reinking the sponge just to soften the image.
The background to the sketch has been created with three different pieces of paper from my stash.
I have torn these to recreate the sketch and then added the resulting panel to a large 8x8 square card which I bought on my holiday at SirStampalot.
I did add a few extra stamped images using a versamark ink pad at the bottom of the panel before I attached it to the main card.
There is also a little bling with a few well placed gems.
Now lets see about that lottery ticket lol.


  1. This is lovely Kim. I love the sponged background with the resist flowers.
    You and I definitely have very similar tastes!!

  2. I like the idea of leaving on the die to colour, perhaps, I should get some Nesties
