Sketch File Challenge

It's been quite a while since I've had time to join in with challenges and I really miss it. So, I have decided that I am going set aside some time every week to make cards and join in.  Don't know if I will be able to really find the time every week but if you don't try, you never will!

There is a wonderful sketch over on Kathy's Waffle Sketch File this month called 'Peeping out' so that's my first challenge stop.  Here's the challenge image..

.and here is the card that I have created for the challenge ..

It's quite a complicated set of layers and that's why I really wanted to have a go at it.  I love playing around with different papers and layering them up.  It's so much easier when someone else is giving you the ideas!!

I made this card using craft backing papers from my Happy Happy Birthday CD ROM (the Winter Birthday collection) and the digital stamp of the cupcakes comes from the same CD.  I coloured them with my trusty promarkers so they would be made up of the same greens, greys and blues as the papers.  As the papers are so brightly coloured I decided to use white card for one of the layers and for the circle just to break up the image.  Of course I couldn't leave them just white so I doodled a square in the large white layer and added spots to the edge of the circle using a black Sakura Glaze pen. All the layers have been inked with a black ink pad to help them stand out from each other.  As I was crafting I found a piece of bakers twine peeking out of all the rubbish on my craft desk which was the perfect size to tie around the white layer so that's why it is there. The challenge is called 'Peeping Out' and the twine was peeping out at me!!

Well I hope you like my return to blogland challenges..and don't forget to pop over to Kathys Waffle Sketch File to see the fab challenge cards created by their DT and then join in yourself!
