The Next Level

This week, you can join in with The Next Level blog challenge, a fab blog full of tips and techniques, and great prizes*wink*!
I have made my attempt on this weeks Challenge sketch, and used distress inks, as that is what you can win from me on there. I am never very good at sketches (and have had disastrous results before, but having seen the ones on the blog, now have a better idea of what is needed. I used distress inks, yellow and purple, for the background,
and used the Karantha floral stamp, masking the Gibson Girl. I use printed twill on the bottom, along with some flowers and a Tim Holtz snap from my own stash. The tag was distressed with the same colours, and a Tim Holtz stamp , highlighted with Glossy Accents.
I was quite pleased with the end result, very different from anything I have done before.

The moral of the story is have a go... you never know !
