The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 8 "Tiets Sketch #2"

Over on The Sugar Bowl this week there is another fab sketch by Tiets. I love that the sketch is based on an A5 card.....I rarely make anything other than square cards. For mine I have used one of the Gorjuss Girls from collection 1.....I cannot wait to receive set 2....not long now.
To colour the main image I have used Distress Inks using the following colours....
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Tea Dye (Hair)
Peeled Paintm (Hat & Coat)
Dried Marigold (Dress)
Peeled Paint/Dried Marigold (Socks)
Tea Dye (Foxy)
The papers are by October Afternoon "Weather Vane" and I have also used some Stampin' Up Choc Chip cardstock for layering. The flowers are by Prima and I have attached them using Doodlebug sugar coated brads and spacers, I have also added a heart pin, some suede ribbon, bling and some leaves punches with a Woodware punch.

The inside has also been decorated with the leftover scraps...


Why not pop over...the DT have made some wonderful creations.....and there is a fabby prize too...
