Today is also the last week for my friend and fellow DT Sandra. She needs to step down and I am going to miss her like crazy. She has such a great artistic flair and I love her style! So, today is a little bit sad for me.

I really like creating little scenes with combinations of stamps. These two I have had for a little while now and they hadn’t been inked up yet. I had to move some of the elements of the sketch around because my house image is quite large.The first thing I did was stamp out the houses and then airbrushed the sky around them. I didn’t mask them because frankly that was going to be way too much cutting! I then colored the houses with my copics and then I airbrushed over that coloring with E31. I didn’t try to be too precise and what happened is that I have cool shadows and such in the sky and around the houses. What do you think? Tilda was stamped and colored and then cut out. I think she looks very elegant with her little hat! I duplicated the airbrushing for the sentiment and then added my embellies.

  • Stamps: Magnolia, WoJ Sentiment
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Chocolate Chip for sentiment
  • Paper: Bazzill, SU Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
  • Coloring: Copic Markers & Airbrushing
  • Embellies: SU Ribbon, Button, Pearls from Pretties Kit

Here is the sketch and I hope you get the opportunity to give it a go. I love seeing your work!

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
