I inked up Sasha for this one! I just love her.. doesn't she just look confidant? I colored most of her with my Copics, then paper pieced her dress with My Minds Eye Laundry Line papers, love the sparkle to this paper. I cut the oval with my Nestibilites, then used a different piece of paper from the collection for the scallop oval, then doodled the edge. Well this helped me decide which papers to use on the card - I cut three stripes out of the dot, and a large mat for the entire card. I sanded and the inked the edges of everything. The inking I usually always do, don't know why I sanded this time... but I like how it turned out with just a bit of distressing to it.
A piece of wide satin ribbon is used for the horizontal band - I wish I had purchased two rolls of this ribbon I just love it the color goes with so many of my cards!
For the corner embellishment I had to use a flower - girlie ya know - I just got a huge bag of off white flowers - this was a great buy and perfect to make match my cards with my Copics and air compressor.... I sprayed the flower part with the same color that I used for her purse (RV34) and then on the larger "flower" I sprayed it with Pea Green (YG63) to look more like leaves. A sugared brad is used for the center.
I really didn't know what I was going to use for a sentiment - then found this epoxy sticker from Cloud 9 ... just seem to fit Sasha doesn't it?
