Here is my card for this weeks Friday Sketchers. I loved this sketch & have kept it in my favorites folder for use in the future. I've been dying to use my new Sweet Ebony stamp (I bought this one & the picking apples one last week) and just adore this sweet image.
How disappointed am I in my colouring . . . . . . . VERY!!!
I have been using a range of card from Wilkinsons which at less than £2.50 for 50 sheets it has been an absolute bargain. So when I went to my local one on Saturdy & saw the stocks dwindling I grabbed a couple of packs as I needed to print out my DD's 13th party invites as well.
The fact that the 40 invites took ages to dry should have rung alarm bells but I went ahead & stamped off half a dozen Sweet Ebonys ready for a relaxing Sunday afternoon watercolouring.
To find they've only change the coating on the card !!!!!!!! to gloss !!!!!!!! I've checked the product code & everything matches the card I already had except the finish. This means that watercolour pencils don't work on the card & my whispers have come out all blotchy . . . . . . . . soooooo disappointed so I'll be taking the lot back lol!!!
Anyway, back to the sketch lol!!
I've used Papermania Retro Floral DP & I've run blue card through my cuttlebug. The flowers, ribbon & brads are from my stash. I've even bravely stamped the sentiment directly on to the DP lol!!
Thanks for looking.
