Inky


Hi everyone, just back from sunnier climes and feeling relaxed and ready to take part in this weeks challenge! Wanted to get it done as soon as possible because this is the last weekend of the Scottish school holidays so back to work on Monday groan- though looking forward to meeting the new children in our class. But back to the challenge -had multiple ideas and all ended in the bin as usual,eventually decided to use blending chalks - and ink of course.The 2nd one worked better( although the photo doesn't do it justice I feel ) and is my favourite, but forgot to spray it with hairspray before lifting it and the more eagle eye of you will see that a couple of  very faint smudgey marks were the result ( but think this shows that it is handmade hee he ) The first well I'll let you decide what you think of it ,both were made using the dry brushing method which I quite like instead of daubers.
P.s Is this better Chrissie think I've managed not to link it to my blog now!
