I stayed up wayyyy past my bedtime to finish this card!
I wasn't going to do another card for the 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown but someone made me. My hubby looked at the first card I created (see below) and muttered something about it not looking like one of my 'normal' cards. I don't know if I have a typically normal card, but apparently I do! Hmmpt. What does he know, right?! Well, that comment played in my head over dinner and by the time I stacked the dishwasher I had decided that I had to create another card for the challenge. Thanks honey! LOL
So here's my second entry for the showdown.
I absolutely adore this little girl! Her name is Emma and she's made by CC Designs at All That Scraps. My girlfriend, Mary, sent me this image and I just had the best time coloring her in! I'm also loving my new nesties and cuttlebug too! LOL I think my new favorite technique is using the nesties as a mask to sponge on a little ink around the edges of the embossed area. Love the effect it creates!
I basically stayed close to the sketch with the exception of the circle panel instead of the rectangle. I added a few embellies like the ribbon, buttons, adhesive pearls and the sentiment tag tied with twine. The rest of the card was sponged with Distress Inks and the panels were machine stitched.
Keep your fingers crossed for me! Happy Stamping :)
