Ah - Watercolours!

It's time for another wonderful sketch from my fab Funky Hand DT mate Carol! If you've not popped over to her challenge blog before, please do as she offers some great prizes every fortnight to the entrants of her sketches.

Without further ado, here is the current sketch:And here is my card! I've used papers from Papermania 12 x 12 Retro Floral prints stack - the holey scalloped edge piece across the middle was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and then the edges inked.

The image is Penny Black which was sent to me ages ago by the lovely Jozza and I've coloured it with watercolours - oh how I like my watercolour paints!

I've inked the edge with chestnut Whispers and then dotted with a very fine black pen just for a bit more definition. The ribbon is from my stash, and the heart button is Colorbok chipboard sent to me by Enfys ages ago and I've covered it with some of the pink and yellow spotty paper.
Great sketch Carol - look forward to the next one!
