Thinking Of You Sugar

I’m loving distress ink watercolouring at the moment and it just seems to go so well with the Sarah Kay images. This one uses BasicGrey papers and embellished by cutting out the heart leafs from another sheet and giving dimension with silicone glue. The metal hearts were coloured with alcohol inks and the lace with VersaCraft ink. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado, the plaque and the corners are from Stamps Away.
