Sketches in Thyme Open Challenge

Phew last one for today, I really do need to iron!

I love the open challenge as you get to see where the DT go for inspiration and I always find a new place to play! This time it was a blog called who provided this one. It's really unusual for me to choose something so 'busy' but I really liked how it turned out.

The photos are of DH and DD#2, birds of a feather these two, and great mates :0)

The papers are from Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby, the squares were all inked with Tea Dye. The 3D sticker is Anna Griffin. The border has been punched with a MS Deep Edge Punch and then run through the Cuttlebug with a flourish embossing folder. I used Coredinations Black Magic card so that I could sand it back. The little black circle has had a similar treatment except I punched the circle and then ran it through with the TH Bingo folder. Everything else is a stamped image from Pink Paislee's Daily Junque collection. A little bit of misting and some Stickles.

I like that it looks a little bit masculine but not so much that DD#2 looks out of place.

Thanks so much for stopping by, coffee now and then ironing............????
