Friday Sketchers

Friday Sketchers have a fabulous sketch this week - right up my street. I felt like doing "pastel/pretty" this time. The papers are Shabby Pricess - Child of Mine. I coloured the image with a mixture of disstres and SU inks. The flower are made using a Basic Grey stamp, stamped three times (heat embossed with pearl plum powder) and cut smaller each time, finished with a lilac rose and surrounded with the Leone Em ash branch punch. The corners (Xela crafts) were stamped and heat embossed with the Pearl Plum embossing powder. I used the EK Success tiny water lily punch to makde a flower for the Gorjuss girls hair to replace the scull & crossbones.

I've more or less echoed the front on the inside of the card.

Materials
BC - white linen : BO - Shabby Princess 'Child of Mine' : Image - Suzanne Woolcott's Gorjuss girl - Medium - Ranger distress re-inker & Su re-inkers : Basic Grey Granola flower stam & Xela crafts corner stamp : Funstamps Pearl plum embossing powder : Leone Em Ash branch punch : Rest from stash
