Paper Pretties - Weekly Challenge
Hey there everyone. I have been blessed to be asked to be a Guest Designer for Paper Pretties Stamps for the months of March and April. I am so excited!!!! Their stamps are so sweet and whimsical and I think they are just adorable.
It is time for the Wednesday Challenge over at Paper Pretties. Since it is the beginning of the month, the challenge is a Sketch challenge.
This lovely sketch has been provided for inspiration:
Giving Thanks Sophia stamp:
RV000,RV00, RV02, RV04 for the dress, bow and flower (G00, 02 for the leaf)
E0000, E000, E00 RV00 for the skin
Y000, Y00, Y04 for her hair
Once she was completely colored, I added little dots of Copic Opaque White to her dress ruffles and neckline and to her bow. I then went around these with black multiliner. The sky was airbrushed with B00.
The doilie is airbrushed with the RV02. I mounted all of this on Pink Cardstock Paper. Usually I do White or Black cardbase, but I thought that the preponderance of pink would set off the image really well. and focus your eyes on the center. I Blinged it up with the roses and the welll... the bling. LOL. The Thank You is stamped on the same pink cardstock with versafine and then embossed. I arched this so that the center is popped up and the edges are flat on the white embossed cardstock. On the inside I added a layer of the same DP used on the outside and then a white center cardstock.
I hope you have a great day and join us in the challenge. For those of you stumbling on this post that did not show up here from the Paper Pretties Blog - you should race on over there and see all the lovely inspiration using this sketch... and then enter the challenge to win some beeea-uuuuuu-tiful stamps!
Can't wait to share more of the stamps with you all over the next couple of months. See you again soon!
