papertake weekly challenge sketch # 22


this card is very different than my usual style. the stamps are both from clarity stamps and i watched barbara on create and craft a few weeks ago and she was demonstrating these stamps and i remembered that i bought them at ally pally a while ago so i thought i would have a go. i used chalk eyes to stamp the images and then used a water brush to blend them in. then i sponged the background colours. i am quite pleased with the end result. the sketch is this weeks challenge on papertake weekly . the simplicity of the design works really well with these stamps. i hope you have had a good day and ta for taking a look at my blog x
