Lil' Miss Muffet...

CLP DT Sketch Challenge

Happy June Everyone!!!  Goodness, I can't believe it's June 1st already!  What a fantastic Memorial Day bash we had at the house yesterday!  It was filled with good friends and family and a ton of fun.  The kids all had a blast in the pool and the adults ate til we couldn't eat any more.  The weather was great, with the exception of an hour or so of rain in the middle, but then the sun came back out and the kids jumped back in the pool.  It was a great day.

Now for some more fun!  Today the CLP Challenge Blog has a fantastic challenge going on thru the end of June.  There are some great prizes if you choose to enter - and I hope you will.  Chelsea has come up with a fantabulous sketch.  I just love working with sketches because it gives me a starting point for my layout.  Sometimes I follow them detail by detail and other times I like to change them up a bit.  This was one of those times.  I took the sketch and rotated it 90 degrees and added some simple embellies.

So I've had this Mo Manning digital image of Miss Muffet for some time now.  I haven't been able to use any of my digi's since our printer adds very faint grey lines to the background and it really bothers me.  For business purposes, it's not a big deal.  But for my cards!!!  No way.  When re-doing my craft room, I took it upon myself to get a small laser printer just so I could print my digi's.  I'm soooooooo happy!!!!!

Here is my version of lil' Miss Muffet.  I hope you like it...

Isn't this one of the sweetest images ever!!!  I was so excited about using it for this challenge.  I had a picture of it in my head and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to execute it.  But, I think she's perfect.  One of my favorites in fact.
The dp's are from BG's Cappella collection and they are just gorgeous.  In case you haven't noticed, I use BG paper a lot.  I absolutely love their paper.  Another favorite of mine.  The cs is SU and Bazzill.  The doily is from my collection and it was originally a 5" square.  I cut it in half, resized it, and placed craft store and MS ribbon over the seam.  The old blue mini roses are by Magnolia and you can get them at Magnolia-licious.  The leaves were cut with a MS leaf punch.  Crystal Stickles were added to the tips of the flowers and leaves for a little sparkle.  I used one of the new Tim Holtz dies to cut the layers on the left.  I used my sewing machine to trim all of the paper layers, however, it shows best around the image.  I really like the finishing touch that a sewing machine adds.

Here's a flat view of the card just cause I think it looks cool :-)  I also think it shows some of the dimension of the card.

I colored the image using both Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger distress inks.  Here's the details:
Copics-  face: E00, 02, RV21;  hair: E41, 43, 44;  spoon: W1, 3

DI's- tattered rose, victorian velvet, aged mahogany, dusty concord, weathered wood, pine needles, antique linen, walnut stain, black soot

That's all I have for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Don't forget to check out the CLP Challenge Blog for the details of the challenge and to see what the other DT girls have come up with.  We've got a very talented group of girls and they always do amazing things.  The best thing about a sketch challenge is seeing what everyone else does with it.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Ciao for now,

Heather said...

Wow really beautiful!! You water colored the image, do you use special paper? or just your new laser printer? Does the ink bleed? Sorry for all the questions I've been wanting to watercolor my digi's but haven't figured out a good way.
