Well its been another nice day here in Scotland. Not just as warm as the past few days but still sunny and dry! The kids are back to school tomorrow and i must say...thank god!!
Tonight i have made a card with one of my favourite images from Elisabeth Bell. I must admit i love all her images, they are all so sweet and a joy to colour. Over on the Belles and Whistles Challenge blog they have a sketch to follow. Its a great sketch to leave plain or dress it right up, i have dressed it up a bit but you cans till see the sketch clearly.
I have left the comfort zone a bit tonight! I have distressed all the edges of the card stock and DP's. I am not big on distressing, i do like the look but i felt mine always looked like a dog had chewed it! Anyway once i put the card together i really liked it and i am not so afraid of my distress tool now!
The image was coloured with Promarkers and little bits of Glossy Accents and glitter added here and there. The papers are "Lush" from MME and doily from Ribbon Box. The charm is made from scratch using beads, pins and chain made at different lengths. I think it works well and a nice change from my usual charms.
I printed the sentiment which says "A note for my friend.." and the rest of the supplies are from my stash.
