Friday Sketchers Challenge



This weeks challenge at Friday Sketchers is a great Sketch. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I looked at the Watercolouring with Distress Inks on Marlenes blog and decided to have a go. I have so many Distress Inks but rarely use them. I used watercolour paper for this as the paper seemed to fluff up on normal cardstock. Its not great but my 1st attempt so will have to give it another go. I used Basic Grey as the backing for my card and used a galaxy marker to add some dashes. 2 other papers and a chipboard piece which I coloured with distress inks and added a few flowers. Finished with a sentiment. Really pleased with this card and a fantastic sketch!!
