Sitting Here Thinking of You



Hi everyone.  Today is the start of another new type of challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More - Challenge #41 - Anything Goes. Yippee!!!  Who doesn't love an "Anything Goes" challenge - the sky's the limit!  I spent a bit of time making another "scene" card using an image from this months' sponsor.  Isn't this little girl adorable??!!  She makes me smile! :)










Stamps:  Pure Innocence-029 (Heather Ellis); Be Happy Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White, Early Espresso, Wild Wasabi Polka-dot DP, Sycamore Street DP (SU!)
Ink:  Basic Black, Bashful Blue (SU!); Copics:  E000, E00, E01, E44, E49, Y32, YR24, YR07, R17, BG72, BG57
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot; Memory Box dies: Twiggy Tree, Leafy Branch, Puffy Clouds; Grass Border die (C.C. Designs), Rectangle Nesties (Spellbinders), sponge, red chalk, glue, adhesives, glue dots, and dimensionals


I colored Pure Innocence with Copics and paper-pieced her dress.  I sponged the background with a home-made, randomly sized, scalloped template.  I die-cut the twiggy tree in brown and then the leafy branch in green polka-dot and cut off the leaves and glued them to the tree ... this is what took the most time :)  I sponged around the clouds before attaching them on top of the frame. 


Here's a close-up of the main image:




I hope I have inspired you to join us for this fun challenge.  Check out the other fabulous creations by the Design Team at ATS&M!

Oh, Lolly, your image looks so real. I think if I sit here quietly long enough, either that little girl is going to say something or her little tweeter is going to fly away. Awe.
