Papertake Weekly Challenge

For this week's challenge on the Papertake Challenge blog Katharina has done a sketch.













Here's my entry. I've used all Basic Grey Periphery papers for this one. I thought they were quite masculine. The wall was coloured in with prismas and zest it but then I sponged over it with vintage photo distress ink. I cut around the happy birthday and sponged that also with weathered wood distress ink on the words and then sponged around the edges with the vintage photo ink. I also sponged the edges of the card with the same ink. Edwin was coloured in with prismas and zest it also. I have to thank a lovely lady called Christine who sent me these new Magnolia images, thank you.

Papers:- Basic Grey - Periphery
Stamps:- Magnolia
Inks:- Tim Holtz distress inks


And this week a random winner will receive a gorgeous Bella stamp, so worth having a go I think. You can find all the details here
