* Vera Lane Studio: Sherlock


Today is my DT day at Vera Lane Studio and I have an ATC to share.

This month we are having an ATC swap, in our Facebook Group, called 'Wishy Washi' and this is my contribution.

I used Janet's lovely AALL & Create washi tape to ground the characters, add a border around the ATC and to highlight the first word of the sentiment.

I used the delightful Sherlock Holmes digi set. I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them. The background was stamped with a stencil ( #39 Lotza Dotz from AALL & Create) and Distress Oxide Inks. I added some colour to the open circles using Inktense watercolour pencils and also added some white splatters. Washi was used around the edges and to ground my characters.

Sherlock Holmes

That's all for now.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
