A Gift For You...

LOTV's Challenge Blog GDT

Hi Again!  Well, this is my last week as Guest Designer for LOTV's Challenge Blog.  I've had a wonderful time!!!  This week's challenge is a sketch and I had a ton of fun with it.  You can get all of the challenge details on the blog and find out how to enter your own project.

A Gift For You

This week I chose to work with a stamp that I just purchased.  This image is called 'Back to School Girl' and she's just darling!  I also got the 'Back to School Boy' and I'll be inking him up as soon as I find a moment.  I love these images.  Not only are they great for the Fall when kids go back to school, but they're great for the end of the school year as well when you want to give a teacher a little 'thank you' gift.

When you look over at the sketch, you may wonder what in the world I was thinking when I put my card together. I had colored the image prior to checking out the sketch and was a little bummed when I realized that the sketch showed a circle in the middle. Well, the image I chose wasn't going to work well in a circle, so I decided to use a rectangle.  I started turning the sketch in different directions so see how best I could arrange things.  Somehow, I combined two different directions of the sketch into one and I didn't realize it until it was complete.  But, I love how it turned out and I had run out of time.  So, I hope you don't mind that I didn't stick to the sketch to well.  Sorry!

I paired this image with new dp's from My Mind's Eye called 'Hattie'.  I bought all of their new 6x6 paper pads and love them all.  Cs is from both SU and Bazzill.  The buttons were in my button drawer.  The jute is also from my stash.  The gorgeous black lace is from WOC.  A while back I bought a bunch of sentiments from Amuse Art Stamps and this is one of them.  I love how short and to-the-point they are.

This little sweetheart is colored with Copic markers.  Here are the details:

skin - E0000, 000, 00, 31, R20
hair - E31, 41, 47, 50, 57, Y21
uniform - BG10, 11, 13, C1, 3
shoes - E40, 41, 47, 57
shadows - B0000, N1

That's it for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by :-)  I hope you'll leave me a little comment to let me know that you were here.  I always enjoy reading them!
