Artsy London!

A very happy Friday my friends,

Freshly Made Sketches are celebrating their 200th sketch this week. Naturally I wanted to join in the fun. If you need a little more to tempt you, check out all the sponsors they have here.

I find sketch challenges hard however this week was a very CAS sketch and as soon as I saw it I had an idea. 

Here is my card, inspired by an arty picture of London I saw here.


To make this card I masked of the bottom part of my card with normal masking tape. I then used my 'Windsor and Newton' Water colour paint set directly onto the 'Bon Voyage' Clearly Besotted Stamp. I stamped this onto the water colour card, then removed the mask and held card upright so some of the paint dropped down-this is my attempt to be artsy!

This was a lot of fun to make and I really like how it turned out. 

It is actually being given to a crafty friend today who I am hoping will also like it.

I will enter this into:
