Double Dutch challenge

This Double Dutch challenge is a sketch one, a little daunting I thought when I first saw it, but it turned out to be most enjoyable. I used Basic Grey Granola papers and use the Martha Stewart punch on the middle downwards strip. I thought this looked a little 'bare' so I inked the edges and I must say I love the result and will certainly be doing that again. The Whiff of Joy image is coloured with watercolours, I accented the 'fur' with modelling paste and stickles. Flowers, eyelet, ribbon and gems are all from stash. The sentiment from my use it up box.

I love this Heather, you've used those scrummy papers! Great tip about inking the edge of your punched strip, I like that one! Isn't it great that you can draw on the ideas of your blogging buddies? xx

The image is great -- but what you did with it is even greater. It's nice that you share all your little "secrets" in construction. Martha Kay
