Getting Sketchy

Hi there Everyone

Its time for another awesome sketch at Sketchy Challenges, and this fortnight the sketch has been designed by Jane!!

For my card this week, I have used some Distress Inks.... I actually Water coloured... OMG it has been so long since I used my DI's.... and well past attempts have been shocking, and ended up in the bin! But today it actually worked out ok... well - its too good for the bin hahahaahah  I think the last time I tried to use my DI's was about 6 months ago... so I am most pleased with out it turned out!!

So there you go, I used the Peacock Feather DI for the main of the image, and tattered Rose and Antique Linen kinda mixed together for her Skin.  I used Walnut stain for her hair, and to add a little darker spots here and there, I added a touch of black soot!  The ears and Tail are in Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose.  My background is weathered wood:-) I added some Frantage to my Doo Hickey leaf die cut the colour is Shaved Ice... 

Here is Jane's sketch, we hope you will come along and play:-)
Thanks for Looking!!
