A long Weekend Sweet Sunday Sketch

Happy Sunday!  I hope everyone in Canada & the USA are enjoying their long weekends!  Hubby was on a plane most of our holiday (July 1) so he is taking Monday off so we have an extra long weekend for golf & biking!  Karen has another great sketch for us to play along with (SSSC124) 

For my card I finally inked up this sweet Pixie image by Tiddly Inks from Stamping Bella - Posie Pixie.  The image is stamped with mementos ink onto bella's bestest paper and coloured with copics.  I paper pieced the pixie onto the image & paper pieced her dress.  I added some glitter to the centres of some of the flowers; others I used an orange atyou spica pen.  The DS paper is MME's Stella & Rose - Mabel.  I added some rhinestones and a sculpture flower instead of the sentiment panel (why oh why do I have such an adverse reaction to sentiment panels)  That being said I didn't flip this sketch!!


Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Stampers blogs to see their take on Karen's sketch and remember to link your card on Karen's blog if you have a chance to play along with us



Thanks for stopping by & enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Oooh look at that hair!!!! Gorgeous and I love how it's outside the frame. I love how you interpret sketches - I'd have never thought of a row of bling to replace the sentiment!!! Cute!!

I love her! Her hair is so pretty flowing off the panel and all the glitter accents are beautiful! And I was just saying to myself after reading you didn't like sentiment panels, "at least she didn't flip the sketch" hahahaha! I love the little changes you make to make the sketch your own. So cute!!

I have to agree that this Pixie looks awesome with her hair flowing so gracefully off the image panel. And you don't even notice the absence of the sentiment with that gorgeous flower and row of rhinestones.

Gorgeous Dana! Love that you went outside the box on her hair - beautiful colours and love all your embellishments!

Jen Tapler said...

This is so sweet Dana! And I absolutely love that you used rhinestones down there - I never think of things like that!
