Sketch Saturday and Secret Crafter

Hi again. Two posts from me tonight! This card is for two challenges. The first is Sketch Saturday #54 - a sketch by Mandy and the second is for Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #35 - Bling.

The image is a clear stamp from Dimension Forth. I love these stamps and since I got this wee man at the weekend, I have been dying to use him. I have coloured him with my usual watercolour pencils and have added some stickles to his chain (bling). The sentiment is from another clear stamp set - a boys one from Woodware but not sure of exact name. The ribbon is from the Smirk range. The paper is Provo Craft 'Lime and Orange Stripes - Rob and Bob Studio'. CS from my stash. The wee brads (more bling) are from Craftwork Cards and are the kind with no backs on them - have mounted on foam pads. The buttons (even more bling) are Dress It Up buttons and are called 'Backstage Pass'.

I am really pleased with this one. I think the wee boy is great and I think the colours go really well!

Hope you like it
