Deconstructed Sketch 41

Thursday -- one of my new favorite days of the week! That's because it's Deconstructed Sketch day! This week's sketch is generously sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. Oh my word, total cuteness! IThank you, Bugaboo Stamps! They are generously offering SEVEN digital images to the winner of this week's sketch challenge!

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know
About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we’re still growing!  From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you’re bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps   at Totally Stampalicious.

Here's what we're playing with this week:

Great sketch, huh? And here's my non-square take on it, using the cute Kidz - Girl and Flowers:

I printed the image, colored with Copics (a little ink smudging around the eyes and one of the hair squiggles - sorry, must not have let the printer ink dry!), and trimmed her out. The papers are all from My Mind's Eye's Dolled Up collection.  The sentiment is from Verve's Sunny Days set, the clouds are a Li'l Inker Designs die, the scallop border was done with a My Favorite Things die, and the crochet trim is by May Arts.
