 Window - It is time for a new sketch at Seems a Little Sketchy. Jenn made a really cute one for this fortnight. We are sponsored by Digi Doodles and we each got to choose one to use. Where is my image, you ask? Well, you will have to wait a few minutes before I open the window for you to see.

Here is Jenn's lovely sketch. It is a fun one.

Now you can see through the window. LOL

My papers are Prima's All Occasion. The window it a Heartfelt Creations die. I distressed with TH new lilac distress inks. It is a very slight change in color, but does give it some contrast. I embossed the window shutters to give it a more wood planks look. I framed with window with lilac gemstones.

My flowers were cut stems. The leaves are a SB that I pinched to add some shape. I used some lilac wire that I spiraled around a paintbrush handle.

My image is Digi Doodles Bird Bath. I colored it with Copics. I must admit that I am rather proud of the water. I played with it quite a while before I was satisfied.
