PTW challenge Katharina's Sketch #11

With my eldest Daughter at college and the youngest at school I found some time to actually take part in the PTW challenge where the challenge was to follow another of Katharina's wonderful sketches. I also indulged in some retail therapy but you'll have to watch this space to see if I made the right decision or not! I have promised myself that I will master (or should that be try) a new technique within a month. I have been distressing papers for a while but normally with chalk or chalk based inks, but this month I have decided that I really should get more out of my distress ink pads so this is what I'm trying here.
This card uses one of the new stamps from Kadoodle, little Leo, he is just so adoreable. The papers are Basic Grey, the buttons and ribbons are from my stash. Little Leo has been coloured using a mixture of Prismacolors and H2o's.
