Kick up your heels...




We have a fantastic sketch by Eulanda this week over at Magnolia Down Under and a great prize too. I had fun with this one. I have used Charleston Tilda and coloured her with distress inks. I went for a monochromatic colour scheme. The flowers and the gorgeous slider pearls are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and I love the ones with the black centres. I haved used vintage photo distress ink on all the edges of the Anna Griffin papers and the Tim Holtz distress tool around the main image.
I am entering my card at Charisma Cardz - - In Stitches, Just Magnolia - distressing, Crafty Ribbons -Ribbon and Lace, Little Miss Muffet Challenges - Girly Girl, Top Tip Tuesday Use Design Papers, Craft Your Passion - A Card for All Occasions, Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Things with Wings.
