Stella Says Sketch

     New sketch today over at Stella Says Sketch and nothing is more fun than being a  Guest Designer for Catch the Bug and getting an inside peek at the sketch for today.  To make my card, I used "Mildred - Chocolate Enriched" for the image and sentiment.  FYI, the sentiment is my own personal statement if not my philosophy on life in general!

Here's the sketch for this fortnight:

     Mildred is colored with ProMarkers, then cut with one of my oldest dies from Spellbinders, a deckled rectangle.  The flowered dp was a scrap, as was the polka dot ribbon.  I also used a scrap of deep pink CS for the lower portion of the card.

     I cut the sentiment with the same deckled die but I had to cut twice, moving the placement of the die to get the overall size I wanted for the sentiment piece.  I added one of my hand-sewn bows which was 'dyed' pink using a ProMarker, and then added the three tiny pearls to the lower corner.

  8. Brilliant card Connie - the image and sentiment are such fun :) Great colouring too - I've almost been inside the screen here looking at the 'gingham' effect pockets, button panel and collar! My guess is that you drew those in - clever idea!
