Willow Sketchie Challenge


Gosh 3 posts in 3 days, what's going on.  You can tell that I'm still not able to venture out and about yet so I thought I'd craft for abit..  Now I have put the online shopping away and done a bit of ironing so I think I'm allowed!  Husband is keeping an eye on me so daren't misbehave and overdo things...... yeah right. I thought I'd enter the Willow sketchie challenge for the first time. It's a great sketch.

I recycled a cereal box to matt and layer the spotted, the striped kraft like papers as well as the image from my Polkadoodles cdrom 'Double Sprinkles of Kraft'.  I used distress ink-walnut stain around the edges of the papers and the image using my blending tool.I also distressed the used string with it too.

It was a fun card to make - I love playing with my distress inks.
