Feeling Blue and a different,coluring medium,plusWOYWW

Hi everyone,first before I start to waffle on,I would just like to thank everyone at OSAAT for the support and friendship they have given me since I have been on the DT.
Last week,I decided,to stand down,as DT member,no I have not fallen,out with anyone,I just want to concentrate,as much as I can on stamping,and getting back into inking,again.
Right time for the challenge over at the PIXIE COTTAGE we have a wonderful sketch,and a color for you this week,and its feeling blue,here is the sketch,by the super talented,Jacqui Dennis. I have used,Hearts Hannah.

 Basil card stock,flowers,beads,MS punch,Pins,Happy birthday Kanban, Coloured,with promarkers.
So we would love ,you to join us again this week,with the choice,of sketch or something blue or both.
Now as for my title well I have admired,dear Kim,for ages,now she really makes the most stunning cards,and always uses,Distress inks,and I have always wanted to use them to colur in my images,  I use,them a lot for atcs,altered art but not to colur. Not confident,enough and could never find,the correct paper without it going all messy. Well last week,I found,some and its just perfect oh so love it  its 3oogsm   Langton extra smooth watercolour card,the image I have used is SK one of the new stamps,Inks,Chipped Saphire,,tattered rose,,forest moss,walnut stain,and tea dye. I know it sounds,a lot but not when you see if,well hope not anyway,so here it is, Hope Kim approves,you can see Kim's stunning work HERE
I have followed the sketch over at Midnight maddness,just extended the curves at the top and moved SK to the side,then just added,some Wild orchid flowers,MS punch,pins,adhesive stones,Kanban sentiment,and stickles,glitter glue.  So Kim would love to know your honest oppinion. Right as for today its WOYWW and the lovely Julia set this up,and I really love seeing what the others,have to show on there desks,have made some really great buddies,too so if you would like to see what this is all about pop over to Julia's HERE
I have been busy making atcs, oh and the chest I made with matchboxes I have made a wee bedside table,and a little bed to match,here they are below,along with some new Tim,gadgets,I won off ebay at a snip
The shelf  I bought at the weeend at a car boot sale,oh yummy,£2 and just think its perfect for all my wee makes,one final thing I have got my hospital app at last for my foot,its the 13th,August,friday just hope that is not an omen.
