Inspirational Card Sketch #21

Another fantastic and versatile sketch this week from Dawn at ICS. there's a great prize up for grabs this week too, pop over and have a look!

I kept quite strictly to the sketch and had a play with distress inks and aged the Funky Hand papers.

I've never used distress inks before and to be honest I didn't feel entirely comfortable with taking a pristine white card blank and making it look like it had been up in the loft for a few years! I'm not sure if I'll be doing it again, but, I had fun trying a new technique and I guess that is what crafting is all about, having fun.
See what new techniques you can try with this sketch. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Here's my take on the sketch.

The alphas are from Pink Petticoat, and the crown is a cuttlebug die. Tfl :)x
