Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge

Well it's that time again for another Isabella's Sketchbook challenge. The challenge this week is to use the colours from Isabella's header on the challenge blog. The prize is 2 of Isabella's fabulous images and of course the winners badge !

I've used the fab sketch over on Sketch Saturday for my card. I've shaded my image with ProMarkers then decided it was little too dark so used some bleach to lighten the grapes up a little. I've used Distress Inks to paint around the image. The border is cut using a Tim Holtz Sizzix die. The background is a Stampin' Up stamp, stamped in Stazon Royal Purple then I've blended Crushed Olive Distress Ink over it. The very background paper is from a pad of Papermania paper that I spotted in the village craft shop.

The flowers are from a lovely package of blog candy that I won and I've used Eggplant Adirondack ink and grunged them up a little. The sentiment is also a Stampin' Up stamp.

I hope you can join us this week and do make sure you hop over and check out the other fantastic DT creations.

Thanks for looking
