Sweet Sunday Sketch

I love to spend Sundays in my craft room. But heck, I hate when I am sketch challenged. I've found that I can usually count on a sistah to help out though...Danabella participates in the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, it's perfect for this Sunday crafter. This week I couldn't believe my lucky stars - the sketch is awesome so I quickly got to work on a card.



I pulled Sorry Shanna by Mo Manning - another rubber image released through Stamping Bella. OMG I fell in love with this one. Had fun with her hair, her dress and those boots. Yup, pretty much found this one came very easily. The paper is Basic Grey Hello Luscious. It's a 6x6 paper pack and I can't grab it without thinkin of my Sissy. This is a little off the beaten path I know, but she acquired the knick name Lucsious Linda from one of our family members - probably only because it rhymed but I have a thought of her everytime I hear/see Luscious. Hey Sissy! Back to the card - Kraft cardstock is Papertrey Ink, colored cardstock is Bazzil. And since I used Kraft, I'm going to enter this in Jeaniebella's TKT Challenge. Check it out here.

I colored on Bella's Bestest paper and stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink. Coloring was done with copics and shading was done with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. Shading around the image was done using Colorbox Robin's Egg blue ink applied with a sponge while the image remained in the Petite Oval Large die. The sentiment comes with the image - another plus. The border was cut using a Stampin Up! punch. Other tools were a corner punch, sewing machine, and K&Company adhesive rhinestones. My finished card is 7 1/2 x 4.

Have a great day!

Cath
