Fairy Twila

I am a huge fan of the Roberto's Rascals line of stamps at C.C. Designs!  Each month I look forward to the new release images and I was not disappointed with the latest release! Check out the sweet new Roberto's Rascals Fairy Twila!

I love her little face and it's fun to color and dimension to it to give her a little turned up nose and round cheeks.    I paired the image with a sentiment from the Magical Wishes Sentiment stamp set.  I added a couple of enamel dots from the Little Man Enamel Dots set to the sentiment strip.  

I used a white gel pen to add the freckles to her cheeks and used a clear Wink of Stella glitter marker to add the shimmer to her dress.  
I chose another sentiment from the Magical Wishes Sentiments stamp set for the inner sentiment.

SSSC283 - Undying Love

While I hate to see summer winding down, I do love that with the beginning of fall comes all of the Halloween stamps and patterned papers which I love!   In  that spirit, I decided to play along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #283 with the SugarPea Designs Undying Love stamp set.  

I chose some patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Halloween 6x6 paper pad and paired it with some MFT natural and steel grey grey stock.  I stamped the images and sentiments in MFT black licorice hybrid ink.   

I paper pieced his suit coat.  I colored him with copics and used a black pastel chalk pencil to add some "dirt" to his face and clothing.

I did the same for girl.

If you would like to make the Undying Love stamp set your own, you can find it HERE.

Here is the sketch:

SPD19 and FMS200 - Let's Shell-ebrate!

It's time for the monthly SugarPea Designs theme challenge!   Though the summer is winding down, we aren't quite ready to let it go so the SPD19 theme is "Summer Sweetness!"

I played along with the SugarPea Designs Seaside Wishes stamp set.  

I chose some papers from the Doodlebug Designs Flower Box 6x6 paper pad and some kraft card stock to create my beach scene.  I cut the three pieces of paper with one of the dies from the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles.  I tore the kraft card stock to create the sand and then trimmed the remaining  2 pieces.  I could then layer them and have the stitches line up perfectly.   

I colored my image with copics and shaded her a bit with a black and brown General's pastel chalk pencil.  I used a white gel pen to add the freckles to her cheeks.   I fussy cut her out and popped her up with foam dots.
