Scrap Friends Sketch Challenge

Hi all,
Just getting a quick challenge in before the end of the month. Loved the sketch over at Scrapfriends right from the beginning of the month and just did not get round to doing it till now.
Here is the Sketch:

Here is my take:

Better late than never I guess, it has been a bit of a rush job but I don't mind how it turned out!

The feathers are the new foam stamps from Scrap FX, I used this page as a road test for them and they are awesome!!!! So easy to use and come up perfectly for the look I wanted here.

 Used the old favourite chevron stencil from Scrap FX and an arrow pack I had in my stash. I coloured the stencil using water colours then outlined it roughly with a fineliner. The Title is one of the new Midi words from Scrap FX (what would I do without them?).

The feathers are stamped with a stamp pad (using 2 colours) then I outlined them and added some details. Foam stamps are not as detailed as your rubber ones, but I love how you can make each image an original with just a few strokes of a pen!


  1. Awesome layout. The stencils and stamp have worked well. Loved that sketch but I have run out of time. Great take.

  2. Oh wow, this looks great. You have put so much work into it with the chevrons and feathers. Looks fabulous.

  3. Those feather stamps are the colours & that oval frame peeking out from behind the photo as well....soooo glad you joined our SF challenge :):)

  4. Love the colour scheme. Those foam stamps look amazing!

  5. LOVE your colours and use of feathers. The chevrons are fabulous! So great to have you joining us at Scrap Friends!

  6. Your pencil stamp outlines are so gorgeous!!!! They make the stamp come alive! I love the stencil background- really stunning page.

  7. oooh this fantastic. I love what you have done :) XO

  8. SUPER boy page, masculine and still you keep it light and cheerfull!


Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know you were here!
