The Nineth Challenge for The Paper Shelter "A Sketch by Kevin"

Well yet another week has gone by and we have reached our Nineth Challenge a brilliant sketch by my fellow team mate Kevin of http://mccraftys-cards.blogspot.com/ and heres what he came up with.


Its a really easy sketch so Im sure you will be able to create a fabulous card with it, but before I start showing you what I have created for you I want to remind you to be able to win this fabulous voucher


you must use one of their images and you will find them here and believe me you will be surprised at how many you get for this amount they really are quite inexpensive. And they are always adding new images to their website not only that but also some really fabulous papers.
Heres my card for this Challenge

The image I have used for my card is called "Cockatoo Rules" and you find him here I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used the Mega Curved Rectangle from Nestabilities to cut it out then used the die to draw around to create the mount. The sentiment is one I created on my computer then printed it out and cut it out with a circle die and a bigger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark brown card with one of two papers from Donnas Bearlymine "For the Boys" design papers, the first one is a yellow and beige spots, and the second is yellow paper with a circle pattern on, this was laid down the card on top of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle towards the top and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive cut two corners with the Nellie Snellen dies and stuck them in the two opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I hope that you will now pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this sketch Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
