Friday Sketchers

I decided to have a go at the sketch on Friday Sketchers this week.

Here is the sketch and this week is done by Beatrix.
















And here is my card. I've used a Sugar Nellie image designed by Elisabeth Bell called Post Box which Annie kindly sent me, thank you Annie. I've coloured her with my promarkers. Hmm I think I NEED more colours as my grass isn't very good. I've used Basic Grey Periphery papers for this one as they always look good when you distress them with distress inks. I've done a lot of sponging with the weathered wood and vintage photo distress inks on the edges and torn pieces. I had no blooms to match properly so again I had to sponge the blue bloom. The sentiment is from a SU set.

Stamp:- Elisabeth Bell - post box
Papers:- BG periphery
Sentiment:- Stampin Up - Simply Said

I really enjoyed this sketch as it was a bit different from the norm. If you would like to have a go you can find all the details here..
