Friday Sketchers - Sketch 43 by Carole of England

Here is a card I made using the lovely sketch provided this week over on Friday Sketchers by Carole (who I was very lucky to meet at the NEC on Thursday....Hi Carole). For my card I have used a couple of stamps that I bought that day from the Magnolia stand...from the St Patrick's Collection. I have stamped both the images with Versafine ink onto Hot Pressed Paper and coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Antique Linen/Walnut Stain (Hair)
Worn Lipstick (Dress, Shoes & Hat)
Peeled Paint (Bow on Hat & Four Leaf Clover/Shamrock)
Black Soot (Horseshoe)
To make the image sparkle I have added Sakura clear glitter gel pen to her hair and the clover/shamrock. The papers I have used are by Black Market Paper Society "Letters from Paradise" that I got from Stampezee in Coventry, and I have also used some Stampin' Up Choc Chip cardstock. For the finishing touch I have added some bling to the end of each swirl, and added a sentinement by Studio G punched with a tag punch by Woodware.

As you can see from the picture below, I have decorated the insides with scraps of the papers used on the front.
Thanks so much to Carole for a lovely sketch and of course to the DT for the stunning cards.
