Thinking of You! - Sketchy Thursday Challange 1.21








This is my layout for the "Sketchy Thursdays Challange 1.21".

Wow, I have to say that this simple looking layout was, ALOT of work and very time consuming!  I actually can not believe it! The title, images of children and the tree in the bottom right corner were all stamped on first.  I then distressed all the card stock by sanding, then I sponged it with a brown and a gold pigment ink.  I even went as far as to sponge onto the ribbon, flower and button to get them to blend into a monocromatic look. Yes, I know what your thinking, I must be nuts and I totall agree!  I will be going to work tomorrow with brown and gold fingers! Wish me luck!
