Friday Sketch Challenge #63

Hello everyone

It is Friday - so that can only mean one thing - its time for another challenge over at Friday Sketch Challenge.

This time the lovely Penny has done a great sketch!

We are sponsored this week by

who are giving away a £5 gift voucher for the winner.

And here's my take on it.

using another all dressed up image (yes I know I will use others but I love these images soooo much!!).  shes coloured with promarkers (lilac, amethyst and aubergine for her dress and balloons, caramel, cinnamon and henna for her hair, blush, sunkissed pink for her skin) the paper is from a digi kit and then the edges inked with dusty Concorde distress inks, all matted and layered on black.  the back ground panel is faux stitched.  i used a white gel pen and then added tiny black dots to make it look like the needle had gone through the paper. I finished the balloon with some glossy accents.

I hope you like it!
