Good morning! Super excited that I was able to take some time to play along with the current MFT Sketch Challenge:
Here is this weeks sketch - I love how simple and versatile it is:
I used one of my favorite Pure Innocence images of all time, Hello Cupcake. I stamped her in Black Licorice Hybrid ink (my new FAVORITE for coloring with Copics - so nice and dark and crisp!) then colored her in with Copic markers. Fussy cut her out, then mounted with foam adhesive on a partial circle that I cut with a Lil' Inker's die. Added some Wink of Stella for sparkle, although as usual, it is hard to see in the photo! I used a trick I learned from another blogger once upon a time (although I don't remember where!) to heat emboss any color of ink you have. I inked up my sentiment from LJD Birthday Greetings using Versamark ink, then inked Ripe Raspberry Dye ink over the top before stamping on vellum, sprinkling with clear embossing powder, and heating. Gives kind of a clear and pretty embossed effect, and allowed me to stamp the color I wanted on vellum and have it stay put. Added some machine stitching around the outside and to hold on the circle and side of the vellum, then used a tiny dot of a glue pen to hold the other edge of the vellum in place on the other side of the circle, adding a bit of a bump in the middle for dimension. Finished off with a tiny strip of Bubble Gum card stock under my pattern paper from Crate Paper which was mounted with foam adhesive, and a sprinkling of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek! Have a wonderful day!!!
