Our Creative Corner Sketch Challenge

Most of you must know about Our Creative Corner by now. It’s a new baby blog with lot of super talented mamas involved! This is why I was so eagerly waiting for Saturday to come, as the talented group of women involved decided to keep Saturday as their challenge day.This first sketch is brought to us by Cindy Haffner.

I had so many ideas for this one, and really wanted to make quite a few cards using this sketch. But I have so much to do nowadays that I didn't get time. :(

Here is what I came up with.

This is one of my favourite decorative papers. I don’t have more of it! *sob sob*. Anyway, I pierced a strip of black card stock (the piercing is hardly visible I know, poor lighting) and then lined it with dori along the edge to make it look clean. The silver frilly thing is called kiran, again an Urdu language word. This comes in gold too.

The image is a printout from colouring pages website, I coloured it myself though (I know you can tell :P). I have raised it a little bit with the help of glue.
It’s not that much, but that’s all I could pull off in the few spare breaks I could manage to get!

These silver diamonds look exactly like mini mirrors, but they are not. I still haven't figured out what material is it made up of. They are pretty hard to handle as they are quite thin and small.
