Happy Tuesday, y'all! How was your Monday? My boys had a wonderful first day of school...I'm so thankful! They ate good and then went right to bed...what more could a mom want? *grin*
So, being that it's Tuesday, it's time for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge! Here's our sketch for this week:
Now, it's not only just a normal Tuesday, it's Jackie's BIRTHDAY!!!! So we're all celebrating her today. Here's my card for her (which will be on its way to you today!):
I've had this image of Willow with Flowers colored for a while and thought this was the perfect time to use her! She was stamped in Memento Black onto Bella's Bestest Paper and colored with Copic Markers. I wanted a softer look for the ground underneath her, so I used a brown Prismacolor pencil for that. After I trimmed the image, I sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink, then matted the image with Chocolate Chip cardstock. For my base layer, I chose Pink Pirouette (soooo happy that I stocked up on this color!), sponged and distressed, then stitched to a Chocolate Chip mat. I colored this image with my Basic Grey Lemonade paper in mind, so I used that for my strip across, matted with a scalloped piece of Chocolate Chip, with some wide Chocolate grosgrain tied around it. I pierced the back of each scallop, so the piercing would give some texture on the front. After mounting the main image on dimensionals, I stamped the sentiment from Verve's Birthday Surprise set in Versamagic Jumbo Java ink.
