Less is More week 117-sketch

Wow another glorious sunny day and we are jet washing the garden and tidying up but I had to come in and post my very late card for the LIM challenge:)

This week we have a sketch for you drawn by Jen.
It's simplicity itself, so to add a little constraint, we ask that the card stays in this orientation.  Remember we still want to see plenty of white space.

I was sorting through my stamps looking for one that appears to be MIA when I came across this set. It's part of a vintage set from Stamp Addicts and I love the ruined archway. So come and see what I made:

I stamped and masked the frame and then stamped part of the archway in black memento. I added a little colour to the foliage to give depth with an aqua brush. The banner was stamped and fussy cut around the image and the sentiment printed with my digital print runner. I coloured her in and added some black paper pen as faux pearls.

Hope you have enjoyed your visit:)
