I print tons of sketches with good intentions of using them to make cards. I like to think about them... mull over how to use them...and usually the deadlines pass before I do. Only a few sketches actually get made into cards. The newest weekly sketch for My Favorite Things was posted this morning. Today was one of those rare occasions where I used it immediately. I had an idea and got right into the studio.
For the polka dots on the sketch, I stamped a strip from the Distressed Diamonds set and embossed it a vibrant pink. I love how it pops against the black background! I pulled out an adorable Pure Innocence girl for my main image. Her little attitude makes me smile. I colored her with Copic markers and paper-pieced her dress using a pattern from the retired Razzleberry Lemonade pack by Stampin' Up. Since the sentiment stamp is photopolymer, I curved it on my acrylic block to fit the circle. So much fun and just a bit sassy!
