Cherish the Little Things
For my take on the sketch I decided to rotate it one turn to the left and used the beautiful Blue Fern Studios "Deja Vu" Collection.
The background pp was masked with the Tim Holtz "Gothic" stencil and Faber Castell Whipped Spackle.  Once dry I misted the masked area with water, then applied Yellow Kaisermist with a brush.  Once dry I randomly stamped the Kaisercraft Script Texture Stamp with Watering Can Archival Ink, then added some Prima Pastel Iris Mist splatters.
I altered the Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame by applying gesso with a sponge to create a little texture and once dry stamped with the Kaisercraft Flutter stamp using the Prima Color Bloom Spray applied with a brush for a soft effect.
