This weeks CMLI sketchie was set by GDT Nicola and the theme was no backing papers. I decided to make my own backing for a change by stamping this checked pattern in orange and then ditressing round the edge of the card in yellow. I don't have distress inks and so I had to get creative and used water colour paints! While I had them out I decided to colour the image in water colours for a change too. It is not the best card I have ever made, but I had fun doing it and it is a little bit different to my norm.
