My first sketch entry


This card is made using this weeks sketch on Carol's Sketch Fun.
The sketch is also the other chosen blog challenge on the Crafty Salon.
This card is my second attempt at using this sketch i didn't like the first one, this one is better.
This is my first properly watercoloured image that i haven't ruined, i used a mix of watercolour pencils and distress inks. Papers are from hotp dog stack. Although it is hard to see i have a co-ordinating strip of paper going across the middle it has smaller paw prints. The matts are cut from sizzix adhesive pads. Went round the edge with a paw print stamp in antique linen to soften the edges and bring all the elements together.
Hope that i have followed the sketch correctly.
