Today's card is for our new challenge over at Sketch N Stash and as we're being sponsored by Lili of the Valley, I used this gorgeous and new image I bought recently.
For once I haven't deviated too far from the sketch, nor twisted, flipped or rotated any part!
I decided to depart from my usual colouring medium for today's card and got my Distressmarkers and Inktense pencils out. This is quite out of my comfort zone and I did spend a couple of hours practising with them while we were on holiday. I wasn't entirely happy with my colouring here, but liked the effect overall - just don't look too closely!
The papers are a My Mind's Eye 12x12 pack, the sentiment is also LOTV, and the rest of my embellies are from stash.
You can check out the rest of my SNS teamies' cards here - take a peek and be inspired to play along with us.
I'm still catching up after our holiday, and my yourngest daughter Emily returned yestgerday from her three months' travelling around Europe - she had the most fantastic time by the sounds, and it was everything she hoped it would be. She also looks so well, which I didn't really expect. We had a lovely family dinner - Sunday Roast - her request - and now it seems hard to imagine her ever being away! Glad to have her back safe and sound though! I will try and visit you all soon though, I promise.
