Sarah Kay Card for Papertake Weekly




The challenge, which got me kick started into crafting again, over on Papertake Weekly challenges was to use polka dots and stripes. Now I just happen to have bought a huge pack of paper all stripes and spots in different colour collections (Paper Studio). This image, coloured with copics, really, really reminds me of Kiki, so I enjoyed the challenge. I stuck some black fibres behind the flowers for a bit of a punch (idea pinched from my mega talented friend Phyllis, thanks Phyllis)
