Here is a card I made yesterday using this weeks sketch over on Friday Sketchers. I have actually used the sketch in mirror image. I have chosen a Tilda from the Shabby Chic collection and coloured her with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Walnut Stain (Hair)
Dusty Concord/Peeled Paint (Flowers in Hair)
Dusty Concord (Jacket & Shoes)
Peeled Paint (Trousers & Socks)
The papers are by Crafty Individuals book 1 that I got while I was at Ally Pally earlier this month, and I have also used some flowers that I got there, some are by Prima, others were from Craft Fairy, and the suede ones were from a kit that I got from Cleos Undomesticated Scrapping. I have attached them with spacers and Doodlebug sugar coated brads. I have added loads of buttons that came from my button mountain....I really do have that many...LOL Finally the thread was also from my ribbon.thread box and the sentiment is by Craftwork Cards.
I have also decorated the inside with some of the leftover scraps...
Thanks Mumur for the sketch and the DT for their inspiration. The team over on Friday Sketchers have said goodbye to Kristine of Norway this week.....so they are looking for a new DT member....not sure if I am brave enough to apply......will have to have a think....I woule worry that my sketches wouldn't be good enough.
We took David's 15 year old Astra for it's MOT today...and for the second year in a row it passed without needing any work....and without cautionary notices....YAY!
