Lately, I have been seeing some gorgeous easel cards out there in blog land so I decided that it was about time to give one a try myself. So, I thought it was a perfect occasion for another first on my behalf. The sweet stop blog is celebrating one year of sketches this week and in honor of the 1st anniversary Korin has some terrific prizes up for grabs for the participants in the sketch. Here is my card using this week's sketch (there is a twist too- buttons and bows)
I colored the image with copics and accented with stickles on the rain/puddle, spica glitter pen on the trim, and glimmer mist on the flowers but some got on the image too lol. The image is a real cutie designed by Deedee Anderson for Sweet N Sassy stamps and is called rainy day teddy.
