Charisma - Sketch

Good Morning! I am back today to tell you about the new challenge over at Charisma Cardz but before I tell you all about it, I muast sat that was quite a turn out for our Anything Goes challenge. You had some beautiful creations.

This week we have a fun sketch for you.

This sketch is perfect for a quick and easy card. I put this card together while tidying up my craft room a bit. I find the easiest way to tidy my paper scraps is to just use them up. These MME papers had been left over from another project and I had in mind to create a monochromatic card. I put together the base and then decided that I would use this wonderful bird image from Stempleglede as the focal point of my card.

Things changed a bit after I stamped the image and realized that it just got lost on the card when it was left as a black and white image. I restamped the image on watercolour paper and pulled out my Distress Ink Markers and a waterpen to add some colour. I love the result as this beautiful image now pops against all of the black and white. All it took was a simple bow to finish it all off.

I hope that you will join us, I am looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations. Be sure to stop by the challenge blog and see the gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the DT.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
