Quixotic Challenge - Sketch

As you can probably tell I got quite an handful of new stamps for Christmas - and I've used this one for the Quixotic Challenges site. The challenge this Wednesday was to follow a sketch (getting very good at following them now).

This is a Lily of the Valley stamp coloured with polychromos pencils. The papers are some I've had for quite some time now - Sugared by Basic Grey and all have been distressed with a pair of scissors and inked with Rangers Vintage Photo. The lace round the edge of the image is just gorgeous and came as a pressie from my good friend Sue (love this very much - just the right size for framing), my fave doily punch and some flowers that I got from Wild Orchid Crafts and here it is...

The colours are a bit wishywashy but considered the photo was taken just after Emmerdale don't think its come out too bad. Well think a nice bottle of wine is called for - can't believe I've just met all the challenges I wanted to join in with .. well just the shabby challenge and that is very nearly done (I changed it AGAIN!!!) TTFN xx
