A sketch challenge by Quirky Lyn

Yes it is one of Lyn's sketches this time round, and the sponsor is Bugaboo (Lyn's personal favourite).

For my first card I used Lilies from Bugaboo, a hand drawn image which is lovely. I wanted to keep the delicate blooms as the focal point so hunted for some papers to do this, the striped paper was a freebie with Crafts Beautiful magazine, the butterflies are an English Paper Company paper. I coloured the lilies with Promarkers and Trias and then painted the petals with Artists Iridescent Medium for a sparkly finish. I added some organza ribbon and some pretty pearl brads and stamped For You o the paper, the sketch is flipped for this one.

 My second example is an Easter card featuring Eggbert Bunny  from Bugaboo- so cute! Again coloured with Promarkers and Trias, and cut with Nestabilities ovals and scalloped ovals, and the papers are freebies from Crafts Beautiful magazine. Blooms, ribbons, bows, pearls and Happy Easter stamp are by Papermania. Eyelets from stash.

 My third card is a masculine doggy one, and I used Oz Toto  from Bugaboo on this one, with papers and stickers by Boxer Scrapbook Productions, and the Papers are called Woof Words.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on a bone sticker, and the stamp is from a clear set by Hero Arts of birthday greetings. I searched everywhere for the bone eyelets only to find them in the first place I looked. Do you like the bone shaped paperclip? I don't know who it is by (It might be Queen and Co but I can't be sure). Toto is coloured with Promarkers, and I particularly like him because he is just like Alfie dog.
