a leafy challenge..




Last night over on docrafts, the spidery one challenged me to make a card using skeleton leaves, as i had some that i had never used. I used an elzybells image which i watercoloured with pencils. The paper was basic grey two scoops, which fits in with the challenge this week, i chose the colour scheme of pink and green. And then the layout i got from friday sketchers. Did a bit of doodling around the edges, and im very pleased with how this turned out!
