Feeling Sketchy #117, Always Playing with Paper #27, Blue Fern March and Kraft+ March

Hello there,  so lovely you called by!

I have a few things to put up today, we had a show holiday here yesterday and it was so good not having to get in the car and go out.. so after all my house hold chores I sat and scrapped..

The Sketch for FEELING SKETCHY #117 was an interesting one which looks like..

and I used a stamp and colored it with water color pencils, I am quite enjoying using them but must admit I need practise too!!

For You.
 Some stamping, a wreath die, some lace, and finished off with Kindy Glitz..

I found another card challenge in my travels this week and it is ALWAYS PLAYING WITH PAPER and the challenge there was to use the color pallette or the sketch or both.. well being a hot day yesterday I just decided to use both..
and I pretty much followed the sketch to the letter, and my card..

Hello
 The butterfly is really sparkly in real life!

I have also been admiring the sketches and layouts for BLUE FERN STUDIOS and I was able to get some Blue Fern papers the other day.. Such pretty papers, and I had some chipboard so I created a layout for this months sketch which I have used like this..
and my layout.. some closer views.


I painted the chipboard - leafy bough (cut in half) and the checker bits with black gesso for a bold matt finish.

Happiness
I used the papers - Montage - Now and Then and Society.

And the March Challenge for KRAFT + is a fabulous sketch with the added criteria of using something that shines..  I have added glitter to texture paste dots as well as some gorgeous  papers from Kaiser as well as adding gold kindy glitz to my butterfly wings..

The sketch..
 


Some closer views.


She leaves a little sparkle where ever she goes..

Thank you for getting this far, I feel a bit more up to date with my blogging, just cant believe it is the 20th day of March already... Slow down days!!! Thank you for your lovely comments too..

  31. Beautiful layout for the K+ sketch & All that glitters challenge! Love all your different textured strips behind the photo & all the gold bits look fabulous with the gorgeous colour combo you've used. Brilliant work Lizzy! Oh and your cards & Blue Fern layout are all gorgeous too!

    Also, on a different note regarding a comment you left on my blog. I had no idea that your hubby was a truckie! My hubby was a truckie up until about 2 years ago...so I know what you mean about being on your own & having to do the bits that the man normally does!! Been there, done that....but he now has a job in town & here all the time (which took some adjusting & getting used to!! lol) Your time will come too...hopefully not too far away for you both :) xx
