A SKETCH CHALLENGE AT PAPER CRAFT PLANET

This is the first time that I have entered the Sketch Challenge at Paper Craft Planet.  When I saw the announcement of the Challenge and the sketch in the PCP "News from around the Planet" newsletter today, I decided to give it a bash - the sketch certainly helped when I was searching for Mr Mojo when putting may card together this afternoon ...
and so, this is my card that I entered:

The image featured on my card is called 'Just Married' and is available in the Digistamps 4 Joy store HERE.  It is a NEW RELEASE and only became available on Sunday 16 September.  The colouring medium is alcohol markers and a white gel pen.  Here is a closer look at the image:
 To make the heart tyre tracks I used an el-cheapo 2-in-1 self inking roller stamp I bought at the Chinese store.  It is rather gorgeous though, the way that the tracks are heart-shaped, and I have made good use of it.  The red stamped hearts are on the other side of the stamp:



To construct the rest of the card, I used the following:

- blue floral /check DP
- red CS
- pale blue CS for the mats
- red satin puffy heart
- Glossy Accents on the back windscreen and on the lights
- red satin ribbon bow

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges too:

  1. Lovely card and excellent use of your little heart tracks! It just goes to prove that not all crafting supplies have to be name brand and expensive to pack a wonderful wallop.
