Carol's Sketch Fun #19


A fab sketch this fortnight from the lovely Carol.  Just couldn't resist this one.  And it's official, I just love distress ink.  There I was with all the pieces of paper for this card set out and I thought there's something missing, it just doesn't work.  Then I inked all the edges with some Faded Jeans distress ink and 'viola' the whole card seemed to come together.  Just can't do without it!  Tflx
Papers: K&Co Denim and scraps from stash
Felt heart: American Crafts
Rubons: Doodlebug
White acrylic paint

  3. Gorgeous use of the Distress Inks - I thought you said you couldn't use them lol. They've added the perfect finishing touch to a very beautiful card.

    Love Lynda xxx

  5. Gorgeous! I have been trying to use some scraps of denim recently but it just doesn't look right... you have certainly nailed the look here Vicky!!!! Love this card. Especially like what looks like a library date stamp for the 14th Feb, such a cute touch! Jo x
