Katharina's Sketch

I liked this week's Papertake Weekly Challenge sketch from Katharina so much, I did another card with the same layout.

The papers have been downloaded from a digital scrapbooking site, I think they are gorgeous.

I stamped 'Winobella' onto the same background paper and cut out the dress, which was then layered onto my stamped image. I coloured her with watercolour pencils and added a few embellishments.

Well I'm going to have to put my crafting stuff away for now, my o/h and I are off on holiday tomorrow for a few days. We have booked into a hotel in Exmoor and for the first time we are going without the kids, how weird will that feel!

Much to our offsprings' amusement our holiday clothes shopping consisted of new walking boots and socks, and we are really chuffed with them (we really must be getting old). So that is the plan, lots of walking and sight seeing. Hope the weather holds up (I will be packing my kagool too, just in case). Bye for now.

I too love this LO and may end up using it again! I love the colours you've used. I usually use brights or pastels, I never think to use more rich, deeper colours but this is great. Love the bella image, she is one of my favourites!
Enjoy your holiday, will keep my fingers crossed for good weather!
