OWH Sketch #233 & Saturated Canary "Sweet Cottage"

Happy Sketch Sunday everyone! Here is today's sketch from Operation Write Home:

You can find details about the sketch challenge here:

I created this card using a digital image from Saturated Canary called "Sweet Cottage" and you can find it here to purchase:

I colored it up with Spectrum Noir markers, used papers from My Mind's Eye (Wood grain and peach floral papers from "Tangerine" and the green oval one from "Lost & Found Breeze".)  The olive green card stock everything is mounted on is actually Bazzill "Dots" (can't see any of those dots, but it was the only thing I had that would match...felt like I was wasting my favorite Bazzill.)

I distressed the edges of everything with a scissor edge and then inked them slightly with "Kiwi Slice" from Fun Stampers Journey ink. 

The sentiment is from Impression Obsession and the little hearts were punched with a $1 heart punch from Michael's. At first I punched them in a light peach floral to match the other paper, but they did not show up at all, want to see?

I had all ready glued them down so I pulled out my Spectrum Noir and colored them with DR1, DR4,  and a little DR7 for a shadow. I think that works much better, do you?

Here is a close up of the cottage because I just love coloring this thing.

Thank you for stopping by!
