TMS Challenge #213

Tuesday Morning Sketches has another great sketch for you, and our sponsor this week is Bugaboo Stamps. Here is the sketch:

I have used Bugaboo Brat Ballerina found here. She is a digital stamp which I printed off onto X-Press It brand card and colored with my Copic markers. I have altered the sketch slightly to fit my image because I did not want to fussy cut her. Instead of two tilted squares, I have straightened the back square and cut my ballerina using a Spellbinder oval die. For a little added interest, I also changed the two outside fishtail banner pieces to slanted cuts.

I've used a white card base and green card for matting all my pieces. My DP are all from a K&Company pad (no pattern name given). The three flowers are by Recollections, and the leaves are from two punches, McGill and Martha Stewart. The pearls are by Recollections.

Bugaboo Stamps are cute little images that hold a special place in my heart. They were some of the first images that I colored when I first started using Copic markers. I still have a lot to learn about coloring with Copics, but I am thinking that this image is a whole lot better than my earlier attemps (smile). I'm especially fond of cute little girl images, and the Brat images from Bugaboo are all darling; they often remind me of my granddaughter.

As your time permits, stop by the blog and have a look at the lovely cards the design team members have made for your inspiration, and as always, we hope to see you participating in our weekly challenge.
