Sketch Saturday - Sketch #35

I enjoyed playing along with Sketch Saturday so much last week, I just had to do it all over again this week (and there is a fabby prize up for grabs too ;o) )

Here is my entry ....

The base card is brown Bazzill.

The patterned paper is Making Memories Chloe's Closet which my very good friend and fellow BasicGrey DT buddy, Tara, sent me all the way from Canada (I gave her a shopping list for her lunch hour !!). This paper is soooo scrummy, fresh, bright and different and I couldn't wait to use it (after a good stroke of course !!). I also distressed the edges with old paper distress ink.

I also used my new toy which Tara also sent me from Canada - a brand new Martha Stewart punch - just how cool is that ?!! If you look closely the little "dots" are actually teeny, sweet hearts !

The image is Sugar Nellie "Kitty" which I have coloured with ProMarkers. The colours I used are : cinnamon and henna (hair), marsh green (hat), apricot and spice (bow on hat), pastel pink (hearts on hat), pastel yellow (flowers on hat), ivory and blush (skin), marsh green (blouse), apricot and spice (apron), cornflower and warm grey 2 (trousers), pastel yellow and apricot (patches on trousers), satin and cornflower (bowl), cinnamon and henna (cat), cool grey 2 for outlines. I also distressed the edges of the image with old paper and spiced marmalade.

The sentiment is a rub-on by October Afternoon.

The flowers were cream Hero Arts flowers which I coloured with my spice ProMarker.

The copper coloured brads and spacers are from my stash.

I also decorated the inside (very simply) but its decorated.....

I used the same patterned paper as on the front (Making Memories Chloe's Closet), my new Martha Stewart punch and a sentiment by DoCrafts.

To Tara - I hope I made your shopping trip in the thick snow and minus 14 degrees worth while !!! LOL - thank you hunny - you are a diamond !
