So for today I had a gorgeous sketch to work with from JayJay for the Stampavie Challenge as soon as I was emailed this sketch I loved it, it has so much going on! It all came together so well.
Now for me this sketch had a victorian feel... and that meant a Sarah Kay image! YEA! Now I started to pull out one of the new Noel images, but I had some new papers sitting on my desk that I really wanted to use, so instead I decided that Lucy and her kitty was just calling out to be inked up and put with the papers. I love this image - she and the kitty are just too cute. Plus I thought she would look cute sitting in the oval with her feet dangling out. I colored with my Copics, then cut out with my Nesties and inked the edges with dessert sand Mementos ink.
Those papers... aren't they pretty? They are Basic Grey Nook & Pantry, really cute cupcake papers is what caught my eye with this collection, but then I saw all the other pretty papers and had to have it. I got the 6x6 stack... again.. trying to be good - but now I think I should have gotten the 12x12.
I followed the sketch and cut the three bands and worked on my layers and sewed them down. For the flourished above and below the oval I pulled out my MM Slice and cut out of a matching solid in the collection. And since I had the slice out I decided to cut the sentiment out with a shadow background. All the papers just worked so well together.
The ribbon is from Martha Stewart ribbon, loved the colors when I purchased it almost a year ago on sale, but now I really do as it really goes well with these papers doesn't it? I punched my flowers with EK Success Retro flowers, with jewelry spacers and mini brads.
This was a fun sketch and I do hope you will give it go and try it out yourself. There is another prize this challenge - and seriously you want to win one of Heidi's secret prizes!! They are very special :0) Now HERE is where you can get to the Stampavie DT blog and see the sketch and the other DT cards.
Better go and get me some breakfast, so I can then get some medicine in me.
