Get Inspired...

...with the help of a sketch and a photo.

Challenge #17 over at "TOMIC" has provided this sketch for this week's challenge...
However, in addition to the sketch they want folk to use this photo as inspiration...
I must admit, I was struggling with this one.
I couldn't think of how I was going to use the two - the photo was saying 'white', 'distressed'...so that is what I eventually went with.
The base card is smooth white CS that has had the edges inked with Ranger Distressed Ink in frayed burlap. I turned the sketch on its side and used the card in 'tent-fold' position.
All the edges of the various matts have been inked with frayed burlap and just a small spray of mimosa in a toning colour attached.
The base matt was punched using a Martha Stewart 'Round the Page' set in a heart design.
The Magnolia stamp used is 'Sisters' and this has been coloured using a limited range of Copic pens in pale browns.

Skin: E000, E00, E02, R20
Hair: E40, E41. E43
Dress: W0, W1, W2, W3

I haven't used any PPs on this card it is all white CS that has been ink distressed. Hope you like it...............................
