Sewn Together DT Challenge #4

Hi Everyone,

Is it me or is the time just flying by these days, it doesn't feel like a week ago that I was bringing you the Sewn Together DT Challenge #3 and now here we are with #4! I apologise for my absence this past week or so but the cold I had doesn't really want to go away and I'm not sleeping much so the idea of crafting hasn't been appealing, but I think (fingers crossed!) that I might be starting to feel a bit better so I will try and post more this week.

Anyway back to the challenge for this week for Sew Many Cards Angela asked us to make a card using a sketch, we could use any image and any colours but we had to use the sketch provided - So here is the card I came up with

I chose to use this cute little image of Zee curled up on the moon with his little bear, straight away it said baby to me so that was what I decided I would do. I coloured Zee with my Copic Ciao markers trying to keep the colours as soft as possible, this is the second image of him that I coloured as the first one I did Zee with black markings as usual for a Zebra but for some reason it looked too much on the card so I re-printed him and changed his stripes to pink. For my card and backing papers I used a pad from Making Memories Kids Collection called Bella - I adore these pads because you get plain colours of card as well as patterned. To finish the card I stamped the greeting with Versafine using a stamp from the Baby Arrivals set by Clear Choice Stamps and added some baby buttons from my stash

Here is a closer look at Zee having some peaceful time with his little friend.

I really enjoyed this weeks challenge using a sketch, I do make my own sketches at home but I've never tried any of the sketch challenges on the Internet before but I think this might make me give them a go in the future. So now that you have seen my card from this challenge why not give the challenge a go for yourself, you can find all the details on the Sew Many Cards Blog and someone will be lucky enough to win a prize! If you need more inspiration then please visit my DT team-mates (their blog links are in my sidebar) and see how they used the sketch, I can promise you they will be worth the visit. Finally if you would like any of these cute little characters to join you at home then you can find a link to them on the Sew Many Cards Blog along with the link to the Freebie Friday image.

Well that's it for this post, 'speak' to you again soon

I caught a cold too and know that all I want to do is just go to bed. :) You did a great job with the zebra. I love it and I'm glad I'm not the only one to not always us "realistic" colors when it isn't just perfect. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
