MMSC96 Potters Hands

This weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge is prescheduled as I have had  Eye Surgery and am now recovering - believe me when I say I would be here in person if I could - I am missing you all....but well on the road to recovery - rumour has it that I may even be able to see what I am doing in time for next weeks challenge - LOL!

I have used this wonderful image by Priscilla - you can find it here at "priscillastyles' Store"  Priscilla has many new images and is designing them regularly now - so make sure you check out her store regularly so you don't miss out!

The image has been coloured using SU Chalks and a Blender Pen - I love the depth that can be achieved using a Blender Pen - for those of you who have been asking - you can find my Tutorial on Chalking an Image here.

The image has been cut out and popped up on foam tape - after colouring of course!  LOL!

The gorgeous Daisy Lace was amongst some gorgeous laces my friend Ann gave me over a year ago - I use it sparingly - thanks Ann!!  LOL!
