Friday Sketchers..n a touch of hanglar ...

...Aaand relax! Phew, only just sat down for the evening; been a hectic weekend one way or another and feel like I need a weekend to get over it! I actually really enjoyed Diggaland and would recommend it if you live anywhere near Kent. It's great fun for kids and adults too!

Anyways, nuff bout lil ol' me n more about the crafty stuff that I want to share with you today..
I've gone a bit OTT with the pics- I just couldn't decide which to use so thought, what the heck, post them all!! lol.
This is my interpretation of this week's Friday Sketchers Challenge sketch.
I loved using my new Tim Holtz Distress Ink on this one. I inked up everything in sight - even my fingers! hehe.
I used promarkers to colour this cutie of an image and created a 3d effect by sticking various parts of the card with 3d sticky foam. I love using lace atm and got this piece from HobbyCraft but am sure you can get it much cheaper elsewhere. I think Tab sells it - see her blog http://www.tabbycraftdesigns.blogspot.com/ for a link to her shop.
