Friday Sketchers #14..

...is a sketch by the talented Beatrix!! This one was fantastic to work with and it gave me an opportunity to try a new technique I have not used yet!! I had a time with it (rolling back my paper) but I think it turned out alright. I will have to research to see if there is an actually tutorial or something!! I wanted to use orange for some reason!! (Not my fav color) But then I remembered this gorgeous pp from BG that I had to have and didn't use!! I believe it is called mellow. The papers are so pretty and kinda fall looking. Maybe that is why I am thinking orange it is a fall color and I got the girls bus passes for school in the mail!!
Anyway the main image is from Penny Black. I first seen a similar image on Fran's blog and I was hooked!! Then I found this little cutie or I should say big ~ the stamps are a good size!! Sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.

Paper: Basic Grey
Inks: distressed inks and brown staz-on
Accessories: buttons and ribbon from stash


Well I hope everyone has a great week-end!! The weather is cooperating very nicely here so I am set!!!
