Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 250

Happy New Year - I hope everyone had a fabulous break!  I'm happy to be back stamping and Karen's SSSC250 was the perfect inspiration!

Since it's the start of a New Year I thought it was the perfect time to ink up Stamping Bella's Uptown Girl Jayden loves to Journal.

The image is stamped on bella's bestest eggshell card stock and coloured with copics.  I added some sparkle to the dots on her top with an turquoise gel pen.  The shading for the table is done with pencils blended with mineral spirits.  The DP is Fancy pants Park bench

I used the layers on the inside of the card - isn't that a perfect New Years sentiment with all the resolutions (I never do them) and the feeling of a clean slate that a new year brings?!

Here's the sketch hopefully you can play along!

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers for their creations

Thanks for stopping by!
