Friday Sketchers challenge

Morning! There is an absolutely gorgeous sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week, I love it and am planning on using it again, thank you!

I have been practising and practising with the distress inks and as you can see have used another image using them on this card. What to do you think? I think it is a bit better than the previous ones, getting there slowly! My little boy got out of bed while I was colouring this and he said "oh no Mummy that poor girl hasn't got a mouth!! You'll have to draw one won't you or she won't be able to talk!" LOL, bless him for noticing, I love the funny things children come out with! I have stamped a Stempelglede grunge stamp around the edges and added stickles around the image and on the spots on her dress and her bow as it is a Christmas card, can't have enough glitter!


All the edges have been distressed with tearing and brushed cordoruy distress ink. The sentiment has been done with some rub on letters.
I have used bits of a gorgeous Prima swirl entwined with my flowers which are from a Prima Christmas bubble, the middle of my flowers are tiny gold beads.

I've taken a photo with the card tilted so that you can see all the glitter, it is so gloomy here today I'm struggling to get a decent photo! Thanks for looking and I hope you like it! x

Fabulous Jane love all the distressing and tilda is fab.
The metal flock is great you can get it in silver aswell, i got it from my craft shop one of the labels is deco metall flocken. the gold came in a flat pack and i have thrown away the pkt. You just apply a glue pen to the area and let it dry and rub on, you can also get a glue pad for large stamps.
Dont get some, i will get you some. I will get bk to you.
