Greeting Cards Kids

As you can see, I've used one of my favorite stamp sets again! I just love to watercolor these sweet little kids. This time I added some ruffles and bling to really show off the image.

If you want to see the sketch I used this week, head over the Utah Divas International blog. I actually flipped the sketch upside down.

Here's the recipe:

Stamps: Greeting Card Kids, Music Notes wheel
Paper: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, watercolor paper
Ink: Black Staz-on
Markers: Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Champagne chunky glass glitter, Always Artichoke seam binding, Square Lattice and Petals-a-Plenty embossing folders, Big Shot, aqua painter, sponges

To give it a vintage feel, I sponged the Very Vanilla paper and the main image with Crumb Cake ink. The Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder was also inked with Crumb Cake ink before I ran it through the Big Shot.

If you are hopping from blog to blog to see the Diva's sketch challenge, Becky's blog is next in line. I'm sure she will have something wonderful for us to see.

Thanks for stopping by, and a special thank you to those who leave comments. It's always encouraging hear what you think.

Be well!
