Melinda With Bouquet



Happy Saturday, friends! Are you ready for another Sketch for You To Try? Jen's got a fun one this week (okay, they're fun every week), so have a look over at i{heart}2stamp. You'll also find Jen's sample and August guest designer Megan Lock's sample. I hope you'll visit the rest of the sketch team for even more inspiration: Amy Rohl, Carole Burrage, Kelly Lunceford, and Susan Liles. If you're inclined to play along (and we hope you are), remember to link up your creation to Jen's post and/or use keyword SFYTT if you upload to Splitcoast.

Today I'm showing a card I made using Melinda With Bouquet by Whiff of Joy. I colored first with Copic markers, then added some extra shadowing and depth with Prismacolor pencils. Her wings are lightly colored, then coated with Frosted Lace Stickles. The pink and blue papers are from the Breaking Free collection by My Mind's Eye. I embellished with a few different punched borders (the blue is with Spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities, the black is with Fiskars Lace Border, and the cream is with Stampin' Up's scallop border), some Kaiser Craft adhesive pearls, Prima mini roses, Teal 5/8" sheer ribbon (May Arts), and some paper piercing. The finished size is 4 3/4" wide by 5 1/2" tall - I know, odd, but that's the way it ended up working out :)

Got any fun weekend plans? We have the new Harry Potter and some swimming on the docket here today. Whatever you're doing, have a good one!
