Isabella's Sketchbook challenge

It's time for another challenge over on Isabella's Sketchbook and the challenge this week is to use black and white except for the main image. I've used the sketch over on Friday Sketchers for this card. The image that I've used is the Peach Basket and I've shaded it with ProMarkers. I've then cut it out with Labels 5 Nestabilities and before removing the die I've sponged some Scattered Straw Distress Ink around the edge. I've then used Broken China Distress Ink around the edge. The background papers are from Pink Petticoat and the embossed piece is a Quickutz EF.

I've hand sewn the bow so that it would stay together and stuck the little flower in the centre which is from my stash.

I hope you get chance to join us this week, Isabella has some really lovely images ! Make sure you hop over to Isabella's Sketchbook to check out the fabulous DT creations.
