Its Another Mystery Monday

Hi there bloggers!  Its been a long day starts back tomorrow after summer vacation here in OZ, so I have spent the day buying last minute school stuff, labeling items, covering some books etc.  Don't you just love it!  As a side note, it dawned on me that I have a little one going into year 2!  YEAR 2...I can't believe it...where does the time go?

Anyhow, it is now 2:30 am and I have been sitting here all evening watching movies "The Young Victoria (so beautiful) and White Chicks (so funny) whilst catching up on some cardmaking for upcoming challenges.  That being the case seeing that it is Monday tomorrow, I figured I would start with a Mystery Monday challenge at The Greeting Farm.  This week they are asking us to case a card made by Claudine.  This sketch was really easy to work with and was quick and fun to make. As usual this is my version of the sketch:

I recently watched a you tube tutorial by Suzanne J Dean on using copics to achieve the look of distress inks.  Since I love the look so much I thought I would try it out for this challenge.  I still think it needs some more work but its better than my last attempt. What do you think?  I think it may need to be darker around the edges. Here's a closer look:

Well bloggers, that's it for me for tonight, I am off to bed since I have to start back doing the school run tomorrow, yay school. Thanks for stopping by, until next time, happy scrapping/stamping. :-)

First of all - Great job colouring the hair of that lovely Rockabilly girl...

Second... THANX 4 all your comments... u sure do make my day. I'm still in Germany, and I have 2 make sure I look 4 the keys on this key pad... some of the letters are in different places...

I've been to the fair - messe - 4 two days, but unfortunately, it was a big disappointment for me... There were hardly any scrapbooking booths at all... :(. I guess we'll have 2 do our best with what we've got.
