Sweet Pickle(berry)!

We have a fabby sketch by Pauline at Willow Sketchie Challenge this week :

Add embellishments and a sentiment wherever you wish.

Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational  bunch.

The image comes from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom by Willow Designs and has been water coloured using AquaMarkers.The patterned papers and sentiment also come from this jam-packed CD.There’s sooo much to choose from!Not just black and white images.There are coloured images and toppers along with some decoupage too.Loads of pretty papers and sentiments plus some embellishments.If you feel a little unsure about colouring there are some Colour Me Perfect sheets including a list of the ProMarker colours used in the original artwork. For the panel behind the image I chose to use a piece of cheesecloth.I did adhere it with Micro Dots but for extra security and an extra touch,of course,I stapled the corners.I also I added some of my fave paper thread and a butterfly charm.
