Have something a bit different to show you today, every so often in class my ladies like to do a sketch challenge. As I think this is a bit easy for them I often do the sketch with a technique of some sort. For these cards I got them doing a bit of distressing both with tools and inks - lets just say a few of them were a bit distressed with me at the end and a couple said they didn't like the effect and thought the cards looked like they were some old ones that had been found in the loft or something lol!!!. But at least its a technique that they now know how to do.
So as you can see all the edges have been distressed (using nail files) and then inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink (using shaving foam brushes - 60p Wilkinsons!!!). The images were stamped putting the coloured inks direct onto the stamps and a bit of stickles added to the tree. The papers were some old ones that came free with magazines.
Here is the sketch we used
