Friday Sketchers.................


Hello,

Today I would like to post the card I have entered into the Friday Sketchers challenge. It is a sketch by Beatrix. Thank you I have loved playing with your gorgeous sketch. I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have used tattered rose and aged mahogany to distress my papers. The grungeboard swirl and nameplate I have crackle painted in milled lavender and then painted the edges with silver paint.

I would like to wish you all a lovely week and thank you for looking.

love
