I thought the sketch for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #117 looked so interesting, especially with the sentiment set off to the side. So I decided to play along.
Here's my take on the sketch.
I used some yummy Webster's Pages paper for the background and stamped the hydrangea and sentiment on some ledger paper.
I went a little overboard with the ink and paper distressing and used a bit of pretty lace that a dear friend shared with me.
I think this card was a "test run" and I'll work on another and decide between the two. I like distressing since it's very forgiving--even when you have inky fingers!
