Paper Smooches Designer Drafts Challenge July 8-14~ #3

If you've been following my blog this week, you will notice by now that I just can't get enough of this sketch that is over on the Paper Smooches Sparks blog this week for their challenge!

It seems as though every moment of my down time, which isn't much, this sketch is all I think about!  So with that being said, here is yet another project that I have created:

With this card, I decide to start with my water color paper, craft sheet and Tim Holtz distress inks.  after getting the background the way I visioned it, the rest of it just fell together!  I used Paper Smooches Promenade stamp set which can be purchased HERE.  I kept my copic strokes very loose and thin to create the "wood" look to the door.  Then after some fussy cutting and foam adhesive, I added some stickles to the awning and glossy accents to the lantern and....tada! lol 

I have loved every moment of this sketch this week! Thank you PS for all the inspiration!  You still have some time to play along! If you'd like to join in or just take a look at all the fabulous entries, visit Paper Smooches Sparks Blog HERE.
