Little Claire's Challenge 6 - a sketch

Here I am again with my entry for challenge number 6 at Little Claire's - a sketch.

Oooh, I love sketches!  They seem, for me anyway, to take away a lot of the indecision that I have over the positioning of images and embelishments on the card - but still allow a lot of freedom with regards which image, paper, embelishment.

I'm still very boring tho when it comes to using a sketch, I follow it to the letter - or with very minimal changes.  Can't get my head around being given something to follow and then changing it!  The only change I made to this one is that I turned it into an easel card.

So onto my card, this one is for a friend's father-in-law.  I wasn't sure about what image to use and then suddenly remembered that I could make the card with a Little Claire image and enter it into the challenge.  At least that would be one less card in the box - this time tho it will be two less cards as I also did one for her mother-in-law, but that is with a Lili of the Valley image so that will be going into the LoTV challenge.

Here's my card.  I used Little Claire's 'Oh Man!' stamps for the main image which is coloured with my Prismas (loving these by the way, am using them over my Promarkers - poor promarkers, so neglected!) and also for the shrink plastic embelishment.  The sentiment is a combination of various word sets; the papers are all from Papermania 'Hampstead' pack; image die-cut with a nestie.:

I don't do easel cards very often, partly becuase they are so blooming difficult to photograph.  Apologies for the boring shot, I think tho you get the idea of what an easel card is.  I always seem to be behind the times when it comes to cardmaking, a trend a year ago is new to me!

Hope everyone is enjoying the continued good weather.  We were promised rain over the weekend, it didn't materialise (apart from some tiny spit spots) and we are still waiting now!
