Not actually, IN the sky, but in Soft Sky blue paper from Stamping UP!
I made this for Beate's Sketch Challenge which I don't do very often - but today I thought I would give it a try - as you can see I turned it sideways so that this pretty Fashionista Bella could fit on the sketch.
I wanted to use my Kraft paper from Stamping Up because, naturally, I have ordered more from the Papertrey Ink release on Wednesday, so I have to justify ordering it by saying that I use that colour a lot!! LOL!
I cut a piece of Soft Sky blue cardstock 3 3/4" x 5" and stamped it first in Tim Holtz distress Ink Antique Linen - that is the closest ink colour I have to the Kraft cardstock. I used the Pretty Pattern backgrounder for that.
Then I stamped the Lace Backgrounder in White craft ink and stamped that over top.
I coloured the Fashionista Bella with copics and then cut it out and embossed it with the rectangle nestabilities.
I masked the outside of the embossing with a post it note and inked the edges of the image with the Antique Linen distress ink to make a faux border.
I had a strip of patterned paper left over from Basic Grey Figgy Pudding (can't imagine I didn't see that!) so I tucked it in behind her for the strip on the sketch!!
I matted it on Kraft paper and stamped the A Muse sentiment in dark brown Colorbox chalk ink that I bought from Cornish Heritage Farms - but I can't find the link right now - they may be sold out.
I added some Autumn Leaves bag-o'-buttons along the bottom of the card because I am LOVIN' buttons right now!! Julia Stainton has a fabulous post today on Belle Papier about buttons - check it out - you can do a bazillion things with them......!!
Our yard looks fabulous, and yet I am still being beckoned to go out and shovel more mulch.......unfortunately my back is fine today so I better go and do it!!
The end result.....keep thinking of the end result!!!
