JUGS #36

Hello everyone,
It's been a hot and humid day. Summer has arrived here!
I've been working from 6:30 'til 15:00 today, glad not to have the shift until 18:30!!!
I came home and just had to craft a bit. Really relaxes me.
I used the sketch from JUGS #36. I made this little Hilda card from Motivet and used Caran d'Ache aquarelable  pencils in 4 shades of gray.
I've been wanting to do this technique for a while and always thought it was too difficult. But I think it's turned out rather nice. My DH said:" Ooh! It's like from an old book!" He's my biggest fan, thinks this card is for the collection and I can't give it away... Sweetie...
Supplies: Basic Grey Granola paper, Coordinations card, Cuttlebug Swiss dots, Tsukineko ink, Sakura white gel pen, Making Memories ribbon, Basic Grey dark blue buttons, light blue from autumn Leaves, Hero Arts sentiment.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. It's gonna be hotter with thunderstorms tomorrow.
