Sarah Kay in Muted Tones

This card is for a number of challenges -
  • Sketch and Stash - Sketch my neglected stash is these Laura Ashley Papers and the stamp has not been used in a while, the new are the gems.
  • Simon Says - 2 papers, 3 embellishments and 1 image - ok I have used 3 types of embellishment, ribbon, flowers and gems - hope this counts.
  • Spoonful of Sugar - Distressing, flowers and pearls, I hope the gems are ok as the DT have used gems instead.

I mixed my distressed inks colours to get the correct shades that I wanted to colour this Sarah Kay image. The top sheet of paper has been dipped into sparkle gold glue. The gems I have glued echoing the curve of the image, and hidden a few in what is becoming my tademark bouquet of flowers. No charm this time as I don't have any gold ones.

I hope you like
