You have to go and check out Friday Sketchers this week. I love the sketch that the Bea (Beatrix from Germany) did this week! Really does make you think and fill all the areas of your card. And it has flourishes and flowers! Fun!
I started with a Rachelle Anne Miller image sent by a wonderful friend! I colored her in with my Copics and white gel pen. Then went through my mountains of pattern paper to match. Don't know why I did it that way this time usually I find the paper first. The base is a pale blue Bazzill card stock, with the back ground a pretty pink.
I wanted it to have something more to it and the square won't go thru the Cuttlebug, then I remembered seeing the embossing on the Scor-Pal on a blog a while back. Oh this I will be doing more of! Super easy I just made diagonal lines every 1/2 inch then inked with Papertrey sweet blush ink. The pattern papers are all from DCWV Spring stack. They are all inked on the edges and sewed down with blue metallic thread.
The image is double matted with the same card stock and then sewed together. Now for the flourishes.... had to get a little creative, I cut apart a Queen & Co. felt border to get it the right direction, but I like how it worked. I used six prima flowers and brads to finish it off. Oh and the sentiment is from My Favorite Things. Very Girly, pink and I am happy with it.
I promised at 5000 that I would do another Candy at 10,000. I really didn't think it would be so soon! Wowser! You are all so kind and wonderful to visit me and my donkeys. So I have gone through my piles of things to put together some fun things to share with one person. A runner up will also be drawn for a little surprise! Just leave a comment on THIS post, if you would like to link me on you blog that is wonderful. If you don't have a blog, I don't want to keep you from winning so it is open to all. Just tell a friend, to visit if they can. Again, thank you all so much for all the hits, I can't believe 10,000 in just 4 months! Thank you -
