Friday Sketchers

I think I'm on a roll this week!! Seem to be getting all the challenges done.

So this week on the Friday Sketches Challenge blog , it was Beatrix's turn to design the sketch and here it is

And here is my card..

I've done things a bit different for this challenge. The lovely image from Whiff of Joy called Willow with hot chocolate has been coloured in with distress inks. Not very good I know but I tried! All the papers are from a Studio K pad and I have distressed them by rubbing them with sandpaper, sponging over them with a vintage paper distress ink pad and then stippling gesso over the whole card. The sentiment is also from Whiff of Joy and is from the General sayings set.

Stamps:- Whiff of Joy- Elisabeth Bell

Papers:- Studio K
