Sketch, Hearts and a little distressing....

Another challenge card for Dottie's World DT. A super sketch challenge this time set by Nicole.

The card is also entered into Creative Card Crew Challenge - where the challenge was "distressing" and A Spoonful of Sugar, where the theme was "Hearts". The distressed element is the edges where I used my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser, and a liberal use of my distress inks.

Here is the sketch from Nicole for Dottie's World:

Products used:
Image from the Sugar & Spice digi-stamp bundle. I coloured in with Copic Markers.
Paper: Basic Grey (Vintage Floral from the Sublime collection) and black plain cardstock
Bows are made from black satin ribbon. Flowers are K&Co paper flowers.
Sentiment is a rub-on - K&Co I think. The hearts are Fancy Pants rub-ons.
I always use Distress ink for edges etc
Pearls are Blue Awning pearls coloured with Copics to get the shade I wanted.
I used Nestabilities for the shapes and a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser for the rough edges.

Pop over and see what the other design team members have created for your inspiration. I hope you will join the challenge.

Thanks for popping by ♥
