SPDSS26 - Just a Phone Call Away

We've got a fun SugarSketch for you to tackle over on the SugarPea Designs blog this week!  Be sure to play along for a chance to WIN a gift certificate to the SugarPea Designs online shoppe!  

I played along with one of my favorite SugarPea Designs stamp sets called Tin Can Chat.

I chose some pretty patterned papers from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6x6 paper pad.

Don;t you just love her face?!   I colored my image with both copics and General's pastel chalk pencils.  I used a white gel pen to add her freckles and some highlights to the tin can. I paper pieced her shirt and added some shading with a black chalk pencil. I love that sentiment from the set!  It makes for a perfect card to send to a friend going through a tough time.  I embellished with a button and some twine. 

Skin - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20, R30
hair - E57, E35, E53, E51
background - BG11, BG10, colorless blender

Here is the sketch:

The rules are very simple…
  • Create a new card or project using the SugarSketch provided.  SugarPea Designs stamps are NOT required to play along or to win but would be appreciated :)
  • You may rotate/flip the sketch & replace shapes – so long as the original sketch layout is recognizable.
