Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #41

This weeks Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #41 is being hosted by the very talented Kirsty Brown. She has also added her own twist to the sketch....water colouring. This means that you have to have some water colouring worked into the sketch challenge somewhere.

It took me 3 attempts to get my image coloured so I was happy with it. It's REALLY important to let your image dry between colours. I found that I was trying to rush it too much and the colours were bleeding into each other. If you're not sure where to start or even if you just want some tips on water colouring check out Di Gibbs wonderful water colouring tutorial here.  She really is the Queen of water colouring!

Here's the sketch-

My card-

And the inside-

I decided to try a baby card as I haven't done one for ages. I've used a retired stamp set but this rabbit is just so cute and perfect for water colouring I couldn't resist it. I didn't have any Pacific Point card stock for the circle behind the rabbit (fingers crossed my order is here soon) so I used Bashful Blue and just sponged Pacific Point ink all over it. I've now added the Tiny Tags stamp set and the Jewellery Tag medium punch to my ever growing wish list. I think it would have really finished the card off having a little tag or two hanging off the knot in the ribbon.

Thanks for visiting!
