I have used digipapers and a precolored motive from the Whole Latte Love, which is one of the prizes the winner get this time. In the pack is also some other motives and texts. And of course the motive also come in a outlined form to, so you can color it as you like.

I have never used digipapers before, but it was fun and made it really easy to use the precolored motive, since it matched perfect with the papers.

Here you can see the two papers and the motive up close:

It's time for more inspirations for the double sketch at Stick it Down this month.

Here is my take on the sketch:

This months sketch, made by me:

Here are some closeups.
First of the flower- and butterfliescluster on the left side. Here you can also see some of the treatment of the background. I used stencils with gesso, stamps and mists on the background, after putting on the strip of cardstock to the patterned papers. I used two different patterned papers from the same line from Blue Fern Studio.

The flower in the bottom of the page, with a little piece of ephemera tucked in:

I love journaling about where and what, so here are the journaling about Katthammarsvik, a tiny little old fishing village in Gotland, Sweden. The harbour has also been used to ship out limestone for nearly 300 years. Today it's most of all a summer village, where a lot of tourists stop by to bath and eat local food at the restaurant by the harbor.

The flowercluster in the upper right corner, and also here you can see some of the treatment on the background.

The small flowercluster in the lower right corner.

Sketch #143 at Feeling Sketchy

It's time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy today.

Here is my take on it:

A card for a child who is being baptist.

Here is the sketch:

As you can see, I flipped it over to fit my motive.

Here are some closeups:

The text with shadow is a die from Scrapmagasinet. It says Dåpsbarnet, which means the child who is baptised in norwegian. The word "til" means "to".

Sketch #142 at Feeling Sketchy

It's time for a new sketch at Feeling Sketchy.

I went for a Christmas card this week, even though it's only April. I have a Christmas stamp which I love very much that I thought was perfect for the sketch, so why not?
Her it is:

Here is the sketch by Michelle van Wyk:

Here is another pic of the card. I have used an old pattern paper for this. The text is in norwegian and says "Merry Christmas" and "A child is born in Betlehem" (which also is the first line in one of our most loved Christmas hymns).
I have used some distress ink to distress the image.

It's time for more inspiration from the double page DT at Stick it Down.

I have used some photos from Gotland (Sweden), which we took last summer. They show one of the many hillforts on the island Gotland.

This months sketch it this: I followed it close, but put on some embellishments.

Here is a closeup on the journaling about this place.

I think these grey flowers from Petaloo was great on this page, taking up the grey color from the stones.
