The Cuttlebug Spot DT Card - Scrap Sandwich

Hi Everyone,

I'm back with another card for The Cuttlebug Spot.  We have a challenge this week that was completely new to me.  So I hope you all have fun with it.  We would like you to make a...

Scrap Sandwich

You can use up those scraps that have been cluttering up your crafty stash and create lots of layers.  It can be a card, scrapbook page or anything else - just make sure you've used up some scraps and we can see those layers.

I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday as inspiration.  I love their sketches - so easy to use and so versatile.

This is what I came up with...

Believe it or not this image was actually in the scrap pile too!  I used it on another card earlier this year and as I always print four copies, just in case, I still had this one to spare.  Using my Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Romantic Regtangles, I cut out my Tickled Pink image and then coloured with ProMarkers in True Blue, Sky Blue, Arctic Blue, Blush, Almond, Putty, Henna, Cinnamon and Cocoa.  I also used Blue Grey 1 Flexmarker.  I inked around the edge with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Salty Ocean.  I used a smaller Romantic Rectangles die to cut out my sentiment which was computer generated. 

My friend, Lynsey won the Shetland Sportsperson of the Year Award last weekend.  Her speciality is triathlons - three times the work!  She is also the No 1. female triathlete in Scotland and we are all so proud.  Roll on 2013!

I started with a piece of Coredinations which had seen better days and distressed the edges further with my Tim Holtz paper distresser tool.  The blue starry paper is so old I can't remember where it came from and the ribbon is from Create and Craft.  I added four gems which came free with a magazine a couple of months ago.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge:

Sketch Saturday - Week #235
Hope you can all join us for our Scrap Sandwich challenege at The Cuttlebug Spot.  Can't wait to see those layered beauties.

Happy crafting,
