Motivet 1st of the Month Sketch Challenge......

Hello,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Today is the start of a 1st of the Month Sketch Challenge over at the  Motivet blog. Here is my card following Stephanie's fabulous sketch! Loved playing with this Stephanie thank you.


I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. Stamped out with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper. I have distressed the background with spiced marmalade and edged this and everything else with vintage photo. The stickles are silver ice and star dust. The bats and spider are heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The border is a fiskars and the stars are a punch.

Here is the sketch.


It would be totally wonderful if you were to join us and if you don't have any Motivet rubber stamps and you would like to join us  there is a free digi image to download!


Thank you so very much for looking and for your comments which I really appreciate. I have been unable to visit all of you because my security is blocking me as there are quite a few blogs with mallware on them. So frustrating! Hopefully, I can visit you soon!

love

inks used
cat - black soot, weathered wood, pine needles

I hope my blog does not have mailware - i think it may be your internet security - I think in most security settings you can manually override and allow sites to be viewed, I hope it is sorted out soon.
