La-La Land Crafts Friday Inspiration ~ A Sketch

Happy Friday! Hope you are having a fabulous day so far! Anyone going to see the new & final Harry Potter film? I am such a big fan of the books and the movies but I am going to wait until next week to see the movie. I think hubby would faint if I insisted on seeing in the day it opens. Besides, I think you would have had to buy your tickets online if you even wanted a chance!

My card today is for La-La Land Crafts Friday Inspiration and this week we have a luscious sketch by Michele to inspire us. Look at it! It is so pretty!

I have been longing to use this adorable Marci Ballerina for a while now and finally got her inked up and ready to color in!

I went with a nice rose color and took some time to add some depth by adding tones of grey around the image. It really makes the image “pop” right off the paper.

The papers (I will admit to using just last Friday) were lying on my craft table and I just thought they were a pretty good match. I did tone down the pink a little by embossing a Stampelgelde grunge corner stamp and a Hero Arts envelope stamp over on top of the paper with some white embossing powder. It helped soften it up and I like the delicate look it brings.
