Dusty Attic February sketch Challenge

HELLO and welcome to my blog my scrapping sistas' 
 Today I am sharing my interpretation of the Dusty Attic February sketch 
to go to the DA blog 

Dusty Attic February sketch 
designed by Nadia Cannizzo


the chippie above: Fancy Trim DA0588. 
I love popping these under edges of paper, I painted with white first, then Pesto and finally Bisque.
 I dabbed the paint on unevenly and wiped some off with a wet wipe to create a  muted look .
