2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan`s Sketch #63

Happy Wednesday! Time for a new sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. And they still need two new Design Team members. Another chance! Here is Kazan's beautiful sketch #63:


And here is my take on it:


I thought of my beloved Hero Arts Starburst stamp when I saw this sketch. Because it is quite large, I decided to make a square card. The Starburst is stamped with Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Walnut Stain Distress Ink, then cut out and layered. That background text is PTI. And these yummy pearl flourishes? I love these! I finally got me some ZVA Creative bling (not easy to get in Germany and the ones selling these know this looking at what they claim for these!). The pearls were cream, but I colored them with a light brown Copic. And they are easy to peel off and place where you want them! I thought it would be difficult, but no problems.

Ok, now I have a photo to share. It makes me happy! Yesterday I told you that I had to scrape off the ice from the windows of my car and today it was even worse! But look what I found in my garden:



When I planted my sweet peas it was very cold and rainy and it took them forever to grow. Obviously they grew now and it seems they don't care that much about the cold weather :) I wish you could smell them - delicious!

Sending sunshine your way! Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa x
