A spoon full of sugar

Morning everyone,

Here is the card for this weeks a spoon full which was another wonderful sketch by Katharina , it has been so much easier making cards these last few days, using all these wonderful sketches, this lady is so full of talent and her blog is fantastic, hop over and take a look.

Anyway, back to the card. When I was making it I kept saying to myself 'what were you thinking' as it looked like the papers just didn't go together, but I persevered and I actually think now the card is complete it looks ok! I wanted to use this cute image, but couldn't make it into a circle or an oval, hope that's ok!!! I also tried to distress the edges of the image lol!! but it all went wrong and I ended up colour 'washing' the whole image!!
Here are the details
  • Image: hAngler
  • Medium: Watercolour pens
  • Paper: Bazzill and mmmm I don't know
  • Rub-on, ribbon, flowers and brads from stash

Hope you like, feel free to leave a comment, have a super sunny day
