When something looks better in real life

For some reason this looks so much better in real life that in these pictures!  Maybe its something to do with the lighting.  Anyway..... I'm sharing it even though it looks a bit pants in the photos.

Today we're at Outlawz Sketch again sharing our favourite sketches from 2016.  We're sponsored by Sami stamps this month how has some fantastic cute images.  Check the shop out here.

This is actually one of my own images that was just hanging around all coloured up.  It was the perfect share for this sketch.  The image is called Fuchsias and you can find it here

I've coloured it using ProMarkers and polychromos pencils, the edges have been distressed with black soot ink from Tim Holtz and a distressing tool.  I've also scattered a little embossing enamel to add some interest.  The backing paper (also distressed) from First Edition and has been cut with a Spellbinders die.

Here's one of my favourite sketches from last year.



I've used two more distressed design papers from First Edition and 13 Arts.  The top right instead of a gem I've curled the paper and added the gem higher on the paper behind.

To the bottom right instead of a swirl and flowers I've used and swirly wood chip embellishment from Scrapienic.

Two gems and a wood chip butterfly finish off the card.
