Sketch Saturday #33

Click to enlarge image
Yawn...I've just finished my card for this week's Sketch Saturday. The photo is not the best, as it's now pretty late in the evening! I'll take another tomorrow (in the daylight) and replace it if needs be [*UPDATE - I have updated the photo - much better with a bit of daylight!)

I'm pretty pleased with this card. This is the first time I've distressed the edges - I used my bog-standard scissors and then inked with Versamagic chalk for that 'vintage' look. The various rectangles of paper are either matted or mounted with foam pads (although the photo doesn't really show this very well). I also think I'm getting slightly better at using my Whisper pens, although I think I won't bother mixing them with water anymore as the ink can bleed into other areas - the blender pen is much easier and more precise to use.

Anyway, I'm off to bed as I'm so tired I keep making typos ... *yawn*

So, night night peeps, and thanks for visiting!
