Happy Monday. Hope you all had a lovely weekend. It was gorgeously Sunny here, so hot I had to find a spot in the shade, but I shouldn't complain we will probably back to rain in time for the Jubilee weekend.
It’s time for a new challenge over at Critter Sketch and this week we have another fabulous sketch by Colleen Spangler for you to follow:
I’ve used a cute little Digi from All That Scraps called Spring Kiki La Rue and coloured her with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers, with just a touch of Stickles and Liquid Pearls on the flowers and shoes.
My patterned papers are from Fancy Pants Summers End 6x6 pad and are mat and layered onto Bazzill Kraft Card and I’ve cut the bottom edge of both with a Tim Holtz Sizzix Wonky Scallop Border Die. The squares have been cut with Nesties (top left is actually a scrap of MME paper but I can’t remember which pad it is from). I’ve replaced the stars from the sketch with some Puffy Clouds cut with a Memory box die and the ribbon has been replaced with couple of MFT Flourishes and some MFT flowers die cut from orange felt (IRL they match the paper but the camera seemed to highlight them and make them look a lot brighter). And to finish just a few gems and pearls.
This little cutie is going to be my Nieces birthday card, she’s turns 18 in August but I don’t have any numbers that looked right, I have my eye on some number dies but I have spent a fair bit on stash this month so may have to save up some pennies before I can buy them. Oh well I’ve till August..lol.
