October SFYTT - just in time
Phew, I'm sneaking this in just in time. I love that Jen del Muro has changed her Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) into a monthly format; it gives me time to fit it in~! I'm mean seriously, who couldn't play if you had a month to do a card?
Today I colored up Uptown Girl - Posh with sentiment. She seems so aptly named with her ruffly, glittery dress, so full of girliness. Because she is tall (close to 5 inches)and due to the sketch, I wanted to place her packages outside of the image panel. I love the way that looks. But experience has left me wiser. Here are the steps: stamp image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto Bella's Bestest paper, cut with Nestie, stamp another image of the packages, color, shade with Prismacolor pencils, machine stitch image panel to matt panel, attach colored and trimmed packages, add glitter. Then attach to card layout. Color inspiration came from the design paper. It's by My Mind's Eye Lost & Found II Rosy 6x6 pack which I got from my trip to Archivers in Columbus.
I think this image is so fun. And I think the sketch works great too! I just may have to make a few more of these up!
We only got about 4 of the 12 inches of snow predicted over night and todays sunshine is melting it all away. Thank goodness. We haven't had time to rake the leaves yet and well, they haven't even all fallen off the trees yet either. But it's a beautiful backdrop of inspiration for this weeks Bellariffic Friday snow challenge. I'm off to color again!
Thanks for stopping by and see ya again soon.
