A Sweet Hello

Good day - I'm getting in another post - in between my busy week - there is a lot to be seen this week on the old blog-a-roo!

I'm playing in this week's Your Next Stamp sketch/colour challenge #43!  The idea is to use the sketch or the colours shown or both to find your inspiration!

I decided to go for both challenges- and the colours that I used were Light Aqua, Dark Aqua, Grey, Kraft and Red as per the colour challenge.

I inked up and coloured Your Next Stamps Ellie Loves Lattes with my copic markers, trying to make little pleats in her skirt.  Not bad I guess!

For my background, I die cut white cardstock with the YNS Puffy Cloud Border Die Set a few times and then set it back together - I kind of like that effect!

My little "garden", the YNS Wild Flowers and Grass Border Die was cut and then watercolored using my Zig Real Brush markers and water.  I popped it up and then placed Ellie behind the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment that is with Ellie Loves Lattes and a little heart stamp that is also included, and then finished by tying Bright White Divine twine which is available at the Your Next Stamp Store!

Take a peek at the sketch and/or colour challenge and join in won't you?
