Serenity Now

This weekend brings another great "Sketch for You to Try" by Jen del Muro. You can see the sketch, as well as her take and guest designer Sarah Green's take, at i{heart}2stamp. For more inspiration, Carole, Shannan, and Susan have all cooked up some good stuff, too. When you're ready to play, if you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: SFYTT. It's fun to see all the sketch cards in the same place.

My chick is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with reinkers and an aqua painter. Her yoga mat is paper pieced from a pattern in Basic Grey's Sultry collection (the other patterns come from this line, too). I added some Hero Arts adhesive gemstones to her neckline and some Sakura Star Dust sparkle to her top. After all, even when doing her yoga, a hip girl like this oughta have some bling.

Have a great weekend!
