Sketch Saturday

Whiff of Joy 2010 - Page 040

Happy Saturday! OMGosh, how is the weather where you are? We have snow and freezing cold (-30C) and terrible wind. It has just been howling for 2 days now! We can’t stay outside for any length of time at the moment and the kids are a little stir-crazy……so am I! I spent a lot of my day yesterday in my craft room but I didn’t stamp a thing. I was busy re-organizing all my things. I have put aside some things, mostly stamps that I have decided to sell. I love them but I need the room. Stay tuned for my sale.

Here is my card for this week’s Sketch Saturday and an opportunity to give you another sneak peek of the City Girl stamps which Whiff of Joy will be releasing on February 4th! They are GORGEOUS and so much fun to create with and I decided to color this one a deep rich blue….my favorite color in a dress…………ask anyone who knows me…………..I have so many blue dresses hanging in my closet!

After coloring with my Copic Markers, I added some twinkling H20s in buttercream to her hair and champagne and in blue ice to her sash and shoes. I find that this is the little “extra” step that gives the coloring richness. I did a little airbrushing around the image and also on the sentiment and added some pretty lace that has been in my stash for a while now.

I added another of the sliders that I bought from my friend Jacqueline’s store. I LOVE them! They are so pretty and I haven’t seen anything similar anywhere else.
