Friday Sketchers #11!!


We have another fun sketch for you all this week, this one provided by Claudia!!

I decided to play with one of my favourite new stamps from the recent High Hopes release, the mermaid!! I stamped Anabela on Wausau bright white cardstock and coloured her in using my Copic markers. The patterned papers I chose to use are from the new Cabana line by My Mind's Eye that I got from The Town Scrapper. I love it SO much and you'll probably be seeing a bunch more of it in the weeks to come. It's so summery and fun!!

Anyway, I cut out Anabela and put her aside. The card base is regular size and it's Groovy Guava, which I love and will be sad to see go when the new catalogue comes out. I used some accent colours of cardstock in Certainly Celery and So Saffron. I took a square of dp and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirls embossing folder to give it that underwater feel and this was my background for Anabela. I attached the Creative Impressions sheer blossoms and the upper strip with yellow glitter brads and pop dotted the mermaid. Then I stamped the sentiment and she's all done!! I had a lot of fun with this one...it feels so beachy, don't you think?

Anyhoo, be sure to head over to the Friday Sketchers blog and check out what all the other dt members have designed....they are fabulous as usual!

And don't forget about my sketch challenge!! Be sure to join in and you could win a bunch of Magnolia stuff!!!

I'm off to work all day today, but then I'm taking Emileigh and her best friend to the movies to see Mamma Mia tonight!! Fun!!
