Friday sketch 78

Good morning Bloggers!

Hope you are all well.  Isn't Autumn closing in fast?  I've actually had my heating on tonight as its a bit chilly here in Dudley.

I have just found out I live 10 minutes from a wonderful craft shop.  Well its good news for me, but not so much for my Bank Manager!  I've brought some lovely crafty goodies and will be trying them out this space!, but for now its our Friday sketch challenge.

Today we are sponsored by the fabulous Rick t Dennis.  I love colouring his images they are such a challenge!

the sketch looks like this:

and here is my take on it

She was coloured with a combination of promarkers and spectrum noir pencils.  the background is craft paper that I've distressed and used a stencil to ink though for the cogs and grungy feel.  I've then added flowers and hessian.  The swirls are paper clay made from a Martha Stewart mold.  the egde strip you can just see, is a Tim Holtz edge die that loks like the top of a note book.

I'd like to enter this into:
