MAS Sketch challenge ....

This month Mad About Scrappin's facebook challenge was a sketch.
This awesome sketch was provided by the talented Emma Stafrace with the added criteria of texture.

I love the sketch so of course I had to have a go! I was given these lovely Simple Stories papers from my lss Paper Addiction so I used them to create a page.

To add texture I used muslin, jute and distressed the edges of the papers.

For added texture I also distress my WOW chipboard flowers. Simply spritz them with water and peel apart the edges with your fingernails. Once they were dry, I layered the smaller flowers in the larger ones and coloured them with some smooch spritz. I finished by adding some large rhinestones to the centres.

The banner was cut from the paper. I simply distressed and inked the edges before adding it to a string of jute twine.
