Rock Chick...

This is my second card using the sketch from Sketch Saturday and it could not be more different to my first! I rotated and slightly rearranged some elements but the bits are basically the same; the other, however, was soft and natural whereas this is bright but grungy.

Still lovin' my digis- this one is called 'Whatever!' from Pollycraft and I even worked out how to paper piece it by setting up two A4 sheets on Photoshop and running it twice through my inkjet (don't do this with a laser printer). This was mainly out of necessity because of my lack of the right colour promarkers but I love the effect- although it was rather fiddly! Just had to put the pink streaks in the fringe although the shade of pink is bugging me already! I usually make felt flowers with my Sizzix originals dies but thought I would give this coloured mirri a go today. The hearts are also die cut with a Sizzlet die then I put the tiny gems on each. Allsorts have paper piecing as their challenge this week so I am entering this.
