SweetStamps # 67: Sketch

Good morning sweeties-
Hope you all had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday weekend.
We hung out at the house all weekend and cleaned out the garage, finally took everything to where it needed to go.
Now out two year old can run laps in there with his bike!!  Smile 

Well today is a new week at SweetStamps, that means time for a new challenge.
This weeks challenge is:
challenge 66 sketch
And here is my take:
Close up:
The flowers were colored with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.
I really love the love the look and the feel that the distress inks give an image.
I love my Copics, but I really love my distress inks too!!!  I have all 44 colors and will be adding the Distress markers to the collection as well….They should be arriving this week and I can’t wait!!!  YEAH!!!
Anyways…the paper is SEI: Morning Meadow and it is really old!!! LOL
I’ve been doing some MAJOR cleaning and reorganizing in my craft room and have found lots of neglected  treasures, that I will be putting to great use!!
So there you have it.
I hope that you will take a leap into this weeks sketch challenge.
Can’t wait to see what you create.
