Here is this week's Sketch and our my creation, using a Priscillastyles image:

I coloured the image using Copics and a white gel pen, and used crystal glitter glue on the ice skates, and silver metallic pen on the skate blades.

To follow the sketch, the background paper was cut to the required shapes and embossed, and adored with crystal flatback, self-adhesive gems. The flower bases are Petaloo's "Colour me Crazy" which I coloured using fabric dye, food colouring and water-based fibre tip markers. The white roses also got the crystal glitter glue treatment. The border on the right hand side is a Marianne's Creatable, and I wove a silver ribbon through the slots.

I interpreted the elements on the sketch to have stickpins, so I made a couple of my own by threading some leftover beads I had in my stash (left over from belly dance costume makes) onto two pearl tipped hatpins.

That's about it! This is such a lovely sketch to play around with! - There are so many elements that can be interpreted really creatively - why don't yo have a go and enter your project for a chance at those fabby prizes?

I will look out for your project in the inlinkz ........................

Love and huggz
