Friday Sketchers #41 Kristine


Hello,
This is my entry into this week's challenge over at Friday Sketchers. It is to follow a sketch by Kristine. Thank you Kristine I loved playing with this. I have coloured my image with distress inks. I have distressed the background with broken china, mustard seed and spiced marmalade. I have distressed the paper with spiced marmalade and mustard seed. The brackets and tiny heart I have sprayed with glimmer mist. The die cut hearts are spiced marmalade, mustard seed and edged with vintage photo. The little pearls were in a gift of stash from sweet Bev.(hugs)
I hope every one's week is going well.
Thank you so much for looking and I would like to say thank you all so much for your lovely comments they mean so much to me.
love
