Get Sketchy!

I have to admit it, I'm getting addicted to these sketch challenges! What started out as a way to get myself out of a bit of a block has developed into full blown inspiration and I'm finally back to enjoying myself and creating! Now, it's true, I haven't actually done a layout in weeks..okay - months probably, but I'm okay with that, eventually I'll get back to that too. For now I'm having a ball with ink, paper and stamps. Here's a card I made based on Get Sketchy challenge # 19:


The flower from the "Because of you" {ippity} set, reminded me of some of Wendy Vecchi's images, so I decided to play around a bit with grungepaper and distress inks. Here's some of the detail on the flower to show the layering; I just love the way grungepaper holds it's shape when you position it, so much fun to play with!
