Well I thought that today I could honestly say that I miss my friends Denice and Connie after a fabulous weekend but they were stranded in Albany and we had to head back to get them. I got lucky enough to have them for another night and they are trying to fly out again today. It appears that Detroit is getting a wee bit of bad weather. We only had a dusting but they were hammered. So now this card is even more appropriate ...it's now "little orphan" Annie. Of course I added the orphan part, this is one half of the new set Arthur and Annie designed by Cristy Croll and released through Stamping Bella. She's pure delish in my book.
I loved Ebru's sketch challenge so much from Friday that I altered it just a bit to create this card and now it reminds me of a quilt. Of course, Annie is stamped on Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. I then paper pieced her dress but colored her using copic markers and added some shading using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Her shoes were jazzed up a bit with a Black Glaze pen.
Cardstock is kraft and black by Papertrey Ink. Design paper is again from October Afternoon Modern Homemaker 8x8 paper pad. I've also added a seam binding ribbon bow with a button and red jute string to sit on top. Black Sworkovski crystals adorn the upper right corner. The sentiment was punched on a Cuttlebug tag die using the billboardabella words only set. This is a neat little set since you get 5 small verses that are perfect for tags.
I'm submitting this for Jeanie's That's Krafty Thursday Challenge. You can play along too. Simply make a card using kraft cardstock and link it to Jeanie's blog here.
