Papertake Weekly Challenge - Dawny's Sketch #7

This is my first entry to the Papertake Weekly Challenge, which this week, is a sketch by Dawny.

I've used my SN stamp ' A Good Book', her book, blouse, hair bow, trouser turn-ups and patches have been paper pieced and the rest of her was coloured using copics. Chalked round the edges with orange and green and added a little gold ink then lightly sanded, not sure whether it was a bit too much, but oh well never mind, finally added a little diamond glaze to her heart pendant. The papers are from Making Handmade Cards, I cut the flowers out from the paper that I used on the middle panel and stuck them to the blank panel. The sentiment was done on the PC and again chalked with a touch of gold ink to the edges. Below is this weeks sketch to follow:

Hmmmm, still not sure about that chalking, ink and sanding around the edge of the image, we can only but learn from our mistakes I guess.
