Sketch Saturday #47

There's a great sketch to follow this week over on Sketch Saturday.

Now I think they say "Blue and green should never be seen unless there's something in between", well apart from a little white in the gingham papers it's very blue and green, but I think they have worked well together. The image is one the fab images from Dustin Pike, coloured with copics and blender. Background is chalked and edges inked. All the gingham papers are from the fab new 'Gorjuss Ginghams' from Funky Fairys, the blue paper is from my scraps stash. Once it was finished I just felt it needed more, so as not to move away from the sketch, I added some faux stitching using whisper markers.

Below is the sketch to follow:

Thank you to everyone for their lovely comments regarding my fab news yesterday, they are much appreciated. xxx
