Dawn has a fun sketch to use on ICS this week. Like Karen on the DT, I used a Gorjuss Girl stamp from Sugar Nellie, I coloured her with H20s and watercolour pencils to match the lovely turquoise/brown papers from the Stamp Attic. I ddin't like the white card she was stamped on against the papers, so I stamped round the edges with some tapestry stamps to soften it a bit. The flowers on against the brown wall she's sitting on are stamps from Craftwork Cards and the border beneath is a fussy cut piece of co-ordinating paper, I've cut round the circles.
I tried cutting and tearing paper to make the long border to the left and didn't like the effect, so I came across some mulberry paper greetings from Papermania that I think came in a goody bag when I was first starting to make cards. Celebrate works for me, I hope it's ok as far as the sketch goes :). The brown flower centre was a white paper flower coloured with Copic pen.
