Life is Good!!!


My entry this week for the Friday Sketchers, which follows a gorgeous sketch from Claudia with lots of detail, is called Life is Good. It features a pretty little h'Anglar stamp and ribbon detail. If you want to see any of the images in more detail, just click on the photographs and they will open up in a large format.


The image has been paper pieced in part and coloured with Copic markers. The papers are digital (as usual!!!) and I have built up the image in several layers and this is shown in more detail above.


Inside the card I have followed the papers through and have added another layered up image. The matching box envelope has similar detail to the front with matching ribbon bow detail and is lined in the constrasting floral paper


I hope you have the time to leave a comment - thanks for looking xxx
