Papertake Weekly Dawny's Sketch :-)

We hava a fabulous new Sketch for you this week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-) Dawny's sketches are always lovely aren't they ! I love this one and think you will too :-)

We are being sponsored by Dies to Die For this week and there is a fabulous prize on offer !

I used my gorgeous new Greeting Farm Anya stamp,this one is called Cheeky Rockability. This cutie was in a recent DT pack from Simon Says Stamp store :-) Thanks Heidi xx

I thought the colour combo on the Colour Create Challenge was perfect with this image (though the song ,,, yellow polka dot bikini was going through my head while I was making this ) Red / Back / Off White. I coloured the image with copics and decoupaged her onto an off white card that had been cuttlebugged with a swiss dots folder. The papers are Doodlebug and the flower is Prima which has been sprayed with pearl glimmer mist. I used some white polka dot ribbon, some red papermania glimmer dots and a charm :-) The sentiment is from a Greeting Farm sentiment set.

I think maybe I should have used a little more black on her hair ,,, she is supposed to have black hair ,,, not grey !! :-) What do you think ?? It is a fine line between grey and stark black eh !

SO ,,, I am entering this into the following challenges :-

Colour Create Challenge

All That Scraps Challenge ,,,,, Dots and Stripes

Thanks for looking :-) The DT and our fabulous GD's have made some lovely cards for you to see ,,, so pop over to the challenge blog to see them and please leave comments :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
