Ismaki09/006 & BG: 'you're so tweet'

I had this card all laid out ready to stick down on my desk when I discovered it was almost identical to the new Ismaki sketch which was posted today. So I re-arranged it slightly (flipped the sketch to work with) and voila, challenge complete :) - love it when that happens (which isn't very often!). I've also used different ranges of BG papers and brads so can enter it into the BG challenge too - yeah!
Stash Used:
  • Images: 'Adam' Toodles & Binks stamp which comes with the sentiment too
  • Colouring: stamped onto kraft coloured cardstock and used my Prismacolor pencils/Sansodor for a change - just love the look you get with this
  • Papers: Basic Grey papers from 'offbeat' & 'boxer'
  • Others: 'euphoria' brads, cuttlebug embossing folder, MS fence border punch, 'frond' leaf punch and lots of faux stitching

Sorry the last few have been the same colour palette but you know when you've got everything out and you're on a roll, it's best not to fight it! I'll be back in the morning with another card which will be less masculine, promise plus some WoJ news.
