By lantern light for FS #50


It's Sunday which means it my last day to get my card made for this weeks sketch over at Feeling Sketchy. The girls have a great incentive for me to make sure I get an entry in each week this month, they will be inviting someone to be a Guest Designer. I would love to have the opportunity to do that, although I am too busy to be a full time DT member I certainly would be able to manage a short stint at it, so girls, pick me, pick me! LOL

Anyway, this is the sketch for week #50:




And this is what I have come up with:


It's a bit wintery considering we are just coming out of summer here in Australia however, I saw a tutorial on how to get glow onto your image and I wanted to play. This is the sweet Christmas Lantern Marci from La La Land stamps which I have coloured up with my Pro Markers. I think I have some practice to do but I am quite happy with the result for my first go. To finish the sketch I added some Calla Lillies from Hooked on Craft tied with ribbon from SU! The sentiment tab is from a paper pack that I have had for years. I hope you like my card even though it is a bit dark but hey there's no point in having a lantern in daylight!
