Oliver Studying for LOTV and Giveaway Winner

Hello lovely peeps


Today I have another card made using 'Oliver Studying' which will be released on Saturday at Lili of the Valley.

First I coloured a 6x6 square of Sheena's stamping card with Frayed Burlap and Hickory Smoke Distress Inks and then overstamped with one of the LOTV Just To Say statement stamps (these are now available as digis here).

The main image was printed onto 300gsm watercolour card - I brightened it first in my graphics program so that the lines were not so dark - this makes them less likely to bleed when colouring with water-based pens.

After leaving it to dry overnight I coloured the image with Distress Markers:-
Tattered Rose, Bundled Sage, Hickory Smoke, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo and Frayed Burlap


The thought bubble was cut from watercolour card using a Sizzix Die called 'Thought Talk Bubbles' and I stamped letters inside using Retro Alphabet by MSE before doodling in the border.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
 Addicted to Stamps 148 Brads and/or buttons
Creative Knockouts #193 Favourite embellishment (buttons)
Creative Inspirations #275 Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky #351 Backgrounds

Before I go, the winner of my 100 followers giveaway is
