DS87: Make A Wish!

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Happy Thursday everyone!

Another week almost over! Personally, I can't wait for this week to end! Work has been off-the-hook CRAZY BUSY and I haven't been getting to bed early at all! The truth is I've been working on a new cross stitch that came in the mail this week and I can't put the thing down! lol You girls know what it's like when you get something new, like a book, and you can't put it down...that's my problem! When I'm in front of the TV, I can't stop stitching! Then before I know it, it's midnight and I have to get up for work in 5hrs! lol Oh well; at least I'm having fun, right?! :)

Since it's Thursday, it's time to share another Deconstructing Sketch with you all! This week's one, DS87, is fabulous for using up all those scraps before the new CHA papers start shipping!

Fabulous isn't it?! Who doesn't love banners?! Here's what I came up with using it:-

She's so stinkin' adorable!! This is one of the pixies from The Pixies Set A from Stamping Bella. Don't you love her blue hair?! I squealed out loud when I finished coloring her in! lol If you can't see the sketch, tilt your head to your left...I turned it on it's side. :) Instead of using different papers for my banners, I used some washi tape! Because washi tape is slightly transparent, it creates a subtle pattern and doesn't overpower the base patterned paper. And just to give the tape some presence, I sewed down the middle of the cream colored tape.

Here's a close up of the image:-

 I really, really love how this card turned out! I watercolored the image with my SU reinkers and sponged the edges of the image panel with Antique Linen, Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then I stamped the sentiment, from PTI's Mixed Messages set, off to one side. Then, because all pixies and fairies must have fairy dust, I used my Quickie glue pen to add some glitter to her wings and hair.

Not sure about the sketch? Need more inspiration?? Check out what the DT girls did with it!

You sound just like me, lol. Once I get started on something I have a horrible time walking away from it and then once I DO put it down I have a hard time getting back to it. It's a viscous cycle, lol. I love the soft colors of your card and that adorable little fairy! Such a fun card!
