Sketch Saturday 74


This is my card for Sketch Saturday this week and it is a lovely sketch to use. I have coloured my image with my copics but got my distress inks out for a bit of inking, boy was my hands in a mess I don't seem to be able to ink without getting it all over my hands lol. I have got to say this card nearly went in the bin because I kept messing it up, at one point my sewing machine put a big hole in it that is why there is a strip of braid on bottom. I really was having a bad card day lol.

Recipe for card:
Basic grey papers from Indian summer pad
Stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie
Martha Stewart punch
copics to colour
distress inks and I was distressed too

Wonderful card, Louise! How funny that we both used KK images for our SS DT cards, but different one! I nearly used the one you used, but didn't colour her very well, so started again!! Hee hee! Love that BG Indian Summer paper as well! Hugs, Simonne x

I really love this card and your commentary on it. It has all the beautiful details and craftiness one would expect. I had to laugh about the ink and the sewing machine tear because I just went through that with one card; I was ready to toss it had I not been able to hide the boo-boo. :D Good work!
