Sketch Saturday #89 - Peachey Tilda

Isn't this sketch from Sketch Saturday just lovely. It could be a card on its own.


Here is my card....


Stamps: Peachey Tilda and Peach (Magnolia), Holidays and Wishes (SU!)
Paper: Melon Mambo, Whimsy and Nursery (DCWV)
Ink: Staz-On, Distress Ink, Copics (to add color to Fun Flock), Chocolate Chip
Embellishments: Organza Ribbon, Dew Drops, Bazzill Button, Fun Flock, Copics ABS.


I am totally hooked on coloring with distress inks. I love to blend the colors. They work just beautifully. An added bonus is the brush is really easy to clean between colors.

I used distress ink to color the peach. I then used Two-Way Glue to adhere some white flock to the peach to make it fuzzy. I used my Copics Airbrush System to color the flock peach. I love the effect.

Have a great week!
