I look at the sketches on the Clean and Simple site every Friday but I've only ever played along with them once. So, I'm glad CAS-ual Fridays kicked my butt into making use of their great sketches by hosting a combined challenge! Now sketch challenges are not generally my favourites but after last week's epic fail in my attempt at a CAS-uals Fridays entry I decided I had to suck it up and take on theis sketch. I also decided to break out my newly acquired Distress inks and inking tools. I wasn't convinced that the technique is as easy as some crafter's make it look but after playing around for a while I came up with a strip of cardstock that I was quite pleased with! I matted it, stamped some Purple Onion stamps and added a few gems for a bit of texture. Now I'm wondering why I waited so long to try these inks out? Can't wait to use them again!
