Lets get sketchy again plus That's crafty

I'm back after lunch now and doing the other challenge at Let's get sketchy
The sketch looks like this and I'm back to front as this is the first sketch for September

What I like about this is that the banner uses up lots of strips or offcuts from papers already used.
I've chosen a neutral paper as my background so that I could add the coloured strips.
I also dribbled red mist over the page before I started.

My photo is of our cat that died in 2008.
I used black and white embellishments as well to go with the photo.
As I only had white alphas I used distress ink across them to highlight.



I've also made a card for That's crafty challenge where they want something that flies.
My choice is a butterfly.
The confetti looking paper and the star shaped "ribbon" matched so well I wished I had more.
I traced the circle then stitched around the edge by hand.
