Papertake Weekly ,,,, Dawny's Sketch :-)

Time for a new Challenge over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-) ,,, the weeks are flying past aren't they !! here we are in the middle of summer already !! :-)

This week dawny has made us another fantastic sketch for us to use :-) Nice and easy ,, just how I like em :-)

We are sponsored this week by the lovely Katharina at Whiff Of Joy
so a fabulous prize on offer ,,,you have to go to the challenge blog to see it !! :-)

I have fallen in love with 'Wee's' ,, all the WOJ images are gorgeous ,, but I must admit I especially LOVE these,,, soo cute !! :-) I bought 2 recently ,, this Wee with Broken Leg and another one which I will show you another time :-)

I coloured the image with Distress Inks ,,, for a change !! my copics are having a rest lol :-) I stamped the image with stazon onto watercolour paper and then masked it. I then inked a Hero Arts Dandelion Frame using tea dye distress ink too. The papers are from the Basic Grey Indian Summer pad and these were a RAK from a lovely blog buddy ,, she knows who she is and thanks hun xx
I made the flower using my lovely Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die, I used watercolour card to cut them out then coloured them with distress ink too ,,, sprayed with glimmer mist and stickled with my fave star dust :-) I find that if you use the watercolour paper to make these flowers , they don't tear so easily !! I ruined loads using ordinary card, especially the narrow petal shaped die ! ,,, little tip for you there lol :-) I also used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a few Robins Nest dew drops ,,, the ribbon was in my drawer :-)
I used a Martha stewart border punch and SU punches for the sentiment ,,, the sentiment is a WOJ too and came with the stamp !! perfect !! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some FANTASTIC cards for you to see so please hop on over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see them :-)
