This first card is a first technique for me, using Make It Monday's Challenge #23 Dry Brushing. I didn't have any white acrylic paint so I used some green stuff I had left over from painting my Hallowe'en decorations last year. I love the rustic kind of feel to it and added a bit of brown ink round the edges just to finish it off a bit better. I also used Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #81 for the sketch and CC332 to use Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Pool, Party, which we haven't got over here yet, so I subbed it with Soft Sky instead.
