Back at Ismaki!

Whew I know I am a little late at last weeks Ismaki Challenge, but I got it done! I was determined I wanted to do the challenge, I loved the sketch and I missed it while it was on its summer break. But man was it a crazy week. So I pulled out the sketch last night and got to work.





I decided to use some of my Hanglar images that were sent to me by a special friends. I feel like these images that were sent to me from many wonderful people for my birthday should be locked in a safe... when they are gone, they are gone and Hanglars are not available here in the US. So I protect them and use them when the sketch is just right.



I colored them with my Copics and white gel pen. Then cut them out with my Fiskars fingertip knife.




I am so proud of myself here... all my papers are scraps! I cleaned my paper shelf off yesterday and decided I need to start using scraps more effectively again. So I challenged myself to make a few of my cards each week with scraps. Heck if I could make one a week I will be happy!




The base is Bazzill card stock, the green card stock is Core'dinations. The pattern papers are Daisy D's and something else (he he scraps ya know) I inked everything including the torn pieces. The flowers are from Prima and Bazzill and have Doodlebug glittered brads in the centers. My sentiments are from Stampin Up.
Now that I have posted this I can go and look at this weeks new challenge. ;0)
I think I have some time left now I can go and check out some blogs before I need to get working. Hope you have a great week and have some time to get inky!
