C4E- SSC#18

Another delightful sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity this week! I liked this one so much I have actually used it already for a few other cards I made!

Stamps used are from FCD one of the newer sets called Fruit Cup. This has some great realistic looking fruit and fun witty statements to go with them! I used my Cuttlebug on the purple background layer and ran my Iris Palette Ink Pad over it to make it stand out a bit more - it is hard to see here but click the picture to get a larger view and you can tell. I used my Slice to cut the lower scalloped circle out and then layered it with some fun yellow and purple paper I found in my scrap bin. The grapes too I stamped on this paper and then colored with Copics (G94, E37, O & B63) I also accented some with the Clear Gelly Roll Glaze pen from Sakura.

Have fun with this sketch - I can't wait to see what you all come up with!

Michele changed things up on us a bit and snuck some themes in for the sketches that she didn't have before so here is another card I made according to the theme with the same sketch for this week...she hasn't seen it yet LOL so I hope she likes it!

Lots and lots of layers on this one used cream and blue paper then added some DCWV Pocket Full of Posies paper. Stamped hands from Parisian Romance set from FCD and colored with Copic markers Eoo and E11. Did a little paper edging on the cream paper with Cognac ink and then colored my ribbon to match with Copic Marker B95. The tag was cut with my Slice! and the sentiment is also from the same FCD set as the hands. Enjoy!
