Countrystyle chic(kens!)

This week at Willow Sketchie Challenge we have  a fabby sketch by Anne-Marie :

Plus the theme of Spots & Stripes.Don’t forget you can choose either the sketch or theme to follow.Or even both!You could be the lucky winner of a voucher to spend at Willow Designs too!Don’t forget to stop by the challenge site and check out my fellow DT’s beautiful creations.A truly inspirational  bunch.

I’ve used a rather sweet image from the Polly Pickleberry CD-rom from Willow Designs and watercoloured it using Whispers Brush Markers.Thes eimages are a joy to colour!The spotty paper is from the CD-rom as well.Keeping with the countrystyle feel I embossed the stripes and roughed all the edges up.To complete the look I added some wooden flower button with paper thread.
