Sketchie Time @ MAWTT

Good morning good people I hope the world finds you well, I seem to be in a jolly good mood for some unknown reason (at least I was when I was writing this - scheduled again) I hope it's lasted!!

Time for a brand new challenge at

MOVING ALONG WITH THE TIMES

and this week the big boss Hazel has given us a

Sketch 

to follow. It's ages since I followed a sketch, I do love a good sketch especially when my mojo goes missing, its just what I need to get me back on the creative path!

Here's the sketch

and here's my take on it.
A little different again from me - no flowers in sight lol. I'm not sure how I feel about this card, I had all these elements that went together but I'm not sure I like them together if that makes sense? I loved this Saturated Canary 'Usherette' image when I bought it but I've found it really difficult to use. I don't know if you can see it very well but I cut my Tim Holtz on the edge star die out of silver mirri card and also the sizzix film strip has been backed with acetate film. I suppose it hasn't photographed too well either but even in real life I'm not too sure!

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details of the challenge, there is also a little prize up for grabs this week and some gorgeous inspiration from my talented teammies.

That's it from me today, I'll be back tomorrow

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

What a brilliantly put together card Laurie - well I know yours always are, but I love all the film elements, the stars and the genius film strip, with acetate no less! Great image and colouring too - what's the film that's showing? Hope you are still in a jolly mood the lovely Spring weather of late does help - hope it's sunny with you, jx

Sarah said...

It is stunning Laurie - truly gorgeous! Love the stars are the top and the image is perfect.

I must admit I've not used a SC image for ages, sort of went off them a bit - will have to print one off.

I think she is fab and i love the striking colours

Kathleen said...

Brilliant card, love your colouring and all the dies and I am loving the fact that you are not putting all those flowers on your cards at the moment.... I get so envious when you do lol.
Had a great bacon sandwich on Tuesday, just exactly as I like them.
Chin up.
