I hope you are in good health, and that you have some crafty time to relax this weekend as well. I am trying to make as much Christmas cards as possible, but am not really doing as much as I'd like to! :) And the few that I make, they want them all!! So.. maybe I'll have to send shop bought ones myself this year! *sigh!* :))
Anyway, this week there are some lovely sketches I'd love to do. One of them is Friday's sketchers, and I used this lovely Belles 'nd Whistles Tania Baking; as I had a commision to do, requesting this lovely image. So this lovely Tania will be travelling overseas to Germany in a couple of days, with some more creations :)
I used Basic Grey Wisteria papers this time. I coloured her in Copics, but paper pieced the apron. But I did shade on the paper piecing as well. I find that it gives dimension. For a final sparkling touch I used some Euchalyptus Stickles on her apron, and on the flowers; and the gorgeous raffia ribbon behind Tania. I also machine stitched the panels.
For the sentiment I used some Stampin up stamps, and stamped the sentiment on a piece of Wisteria DP, the same paper from which I paper pieced the apron. Then I cut around it free hand, and cut a purple circle with the nesties. I distressed it with my nails and cut a scalloped circle with the same apron's DP to coordinate.
On Tania's bowl I used Crystal Lacquer to give her dimension. Prima flowers, Paper, Stickles and Crystal Lacquer from Roses on Paper. Ribbon and apple charm from Quixotic Paperie.
A better view of the image, and how I used the Stickles.
This is the inside view. I stamped the sentiment with Versa Colour Atlantic Ink, and the corner stamp is Studio G.
I hope you like it, and that you love these gorgeous stamps as much as I do. Summer is lovely to work with, and she'll be glad to help you if you need these stamps.
