Papertake Weekly Sketch

Today's card is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge which this week is a sketch by Dawn.

I coloured this image a few days ago using Ranger Distress Ink, in various strengths of 'dusty concord'. The thing is, I'm not really a fan of lilac/purple, so struggled to find any papers to match. I think this one came from a big K&Co pack I bought eons ago from QVC (it was cheap at the time), and it seemed to fit with the 'Victorian' feel of the image. I stamped the border with a Hero Arts stamp, the ribbon was from a gift set and the flowers a a mix from stash.

The thing I like most about this card is that I used lots of old stash to create something not too bad after all.

Have a good Tuesday and TFL xx
