Whiff of Joy Challenge - a sketch by Heather

Can you believe it's week 31 already for the Whiff of Joy Challenges, dear me where has the time gone!!! This week we have a fabulous sketch done by Heather, a nice easy one too.

I have used another of the darling images from the summer kit. Each one I use I think is my favourite till I ink up the next one lol. I have been stroking these Nana's Nursery papers for months and months and even broke out in a sweat yesterday when I had to cut into them - what am I like!! I stamped up some of the strawberries from the kit to mix in with the flowers for a change. They are just so sweet ... literally lol and so easy to colour.

I went for a really clean look on the inside - no way was I cutting into another sheet of the strawberry paper - that's strictly for stroking lol. I'm really happy with how the inside turned out, the white really shows off those cute little strawberries perfectly I think.
