Busy this week

Yes, yet another week has gone by and I am only just updating this. So much for good intentions!!
 I "checked"out a few challenge to give me some inspiration for this week. Carol over at Carol's Sketch Fun had a nice design that I have used for her challenge this week. Used a black card as a base, then added a nice deep red layer and attached with silver brads. The black/silver spots layer was some nice paper that I bought last year and have not had a chance to use. The stamp is one of those lovely old photograph stamps that I cut so I just had the girl leaning on the chair. Layered the words with layering tape so they stand out from the rest of the card.







 
This card uses the same stamp but I have only cut one side of it. The top, bottom and left side are torn. I used distress inks to colour the torn parts of the picture. The dress was coloured with waterpen and tonbow markers. The challenge for Papertake Weekly   was Check this out. The background paper is checked, as is the girl's dress and the card also has gingham ribbon.

The design is from 2 Sketches for You for this week, but I have mirrored the actual sketch.
