SATURDAY SKETCH #16....WILLOW WITH LANTERN



Another great sketch from Jo at "Saturday Sketch" this week,i know what you're thinking Saturday sketch and it's Thursday,i'm alittle behind...lol.
For this i've used one of my recent purchases from Whiff Of Joy "Willow With Lantern",i adore this stamp,it's a large size stamp and beautiful to work with,hence the A5 card,i'd forgotten what it was like to work with this size card,tend now to use more square cards.
The image then as i've said "Willow With Latern",Whiff Of Joy,coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's,with a touch of Sakuka,matted and layered.
The papers are HOTP Metallic Gold,gorgeous papers and willow deserves them...lol
Corners and scrolls cut on the Wizard,flowers punched with Xcut punch.
Ribbon and gems from stash.
Haven't added a sentiment to this,but will later when i decide who i will be sending it to.

Hi Sandra, huge sigh!!! I don't know why you aren't on about a hundred design teams, all your cards are stunning and this one is breathtaking! Absolutely love your colouring (thank you for your tips about markers, I'll probably start off as you did and experiment). Your mix of markers and prismas is a gorgeous effect. Beautiful papers and rich colours, embellishments are stunning too. Love this stamp, one more for the list LOL! Chris xxx
