Good afternoon all and what a beautiful sunny day...

Today I have ticked lots of jobs off the craft to do list and even had time to enter one of my favourite challenged ...the Less Is More Blog Challenge...

This week we have a theme...

And it is a Sketch...And here is what I came up with.

Here is the sketch.



I started by masking my piece of card using low tack masking tape.


Then I added some colour using Distress Ink and a mini blending tool.

When the tape was removed I stamped my design using some of my favourite Clarity Stamps.


Using water I faux bleached some of the feather ....I do think it makes such a difference...oh and I just had to add the fairy.....she does look at home sat there...

I wonder....Do you believe in Fairies?

I do love to enter this and to challenge my crafty MoJo...and most of all I am so pleased that many of you lovely followers have now entered it too...

Also I would just like to thank all those lovely ladies who sent good wishes to Adam...he is on the mend slowly, but not able to go back to work yet....

I had better go and water my tubs and hanging baskets...I think they may just appreciate a drink...

Have a lovely evening...

Love and hugs...

Jo. xxxx
