MAWTT Challenge 99 - Sketch

HI Blogging Buddies  - how is the world with you today?

This week at MAWTT our fabulous teamie Hazel has given us a sketch to work with. I set about using the image and made it into a transparent ping file so that I could print it onto distressed paper, made by myself with DIs and sprinkled water - you know the technique. I used some TH text paper and Graphic 45 Steampunk card and bought some ribbon from a craft shop local to my sister when I went to see her on Wednesday. Great - made the tag to go with it added some lace, finished them all off and went to draft my post (actually I couldn't because Blogger had gone down) - but I tried to remember the theme - what was it? No. I had to go and check the DT blog to remind me - hey ho guess what? I hadn't followed the theme (sketch) at all - duh!!!! Where had my brain gone???? So then had to set about making another one. But that gives me even more to show you today.

First my Steampunk Vintage Vamp. I love this image from Stitchy Bear.

Supplies used -
DIs - frayed burlap, antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain
DSs - forest green, wild honey
Papers - G45 steampunk, DCWV naturals, TH
Stickles - diamond
Sakura glaze pens - green and white
Sizzlits architectural accents #4 die
Steampunk embellishments

So to show you the first card and tag I made where I just got carried away in my own little world. (But that's good isn't it - shows I was in a creative and thinking mood).

Supplies used
Provo Craft corner die
Graphic 45 and TH papers
Stitchy bear image with added text

Challenges to have fun with
The Rubber Cafe - Vintage

I am also really pleased that my shabby recipe card was chosen as card of the week at Sugar Creek Hollow. Thank you girls for choosing my card, I am delighted and feel very honoured. Isn't this a cool badge?

Well I hope to see you over at MAWTT this week.

Take care.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
