La-La Land Crafts is Sketchy This Week!

Hello friends!!  Happy Monday to ya!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was very busy with running around and doing lots and lots of canning!  I think it will be worth the trouble though.  :)

So today is another "Inspirational Monday" over on the
 La-La Land Crafts blog
This week we are sharing some inspiration with you using this sketch:

So be sure to hop on over to the blog this week to see all of the wonderful inspiration that the talented design team has to share with you using this sketch!

Here's my take on this sketch:
This darling image is called Love You Marci and the sentiment I've used on the banner comes with this image set as well!  I've also used some dies that I thought went really well with this cutie too!  I've used both the Hanging Hearts & Love Word dies along with the Stitched Elements dies for my card design.

I have recently received a gorgeous paper pad by Trimcraft and I thought it would be perfect to try out with this sketch.  The colors are my favorite color combo!  I have used some papers to help me paper piece parts of Marci's dress too!  The bottom part of her dress along with the heart in the center of her dress and her head band were all paper pieced.  I've used some Copics to help a bit with the shading  It's been such a long time that I have used flowers on my cards, I think I almost forgot what an awesome selection of flowers I have in my stash!! :)

Here's a closer view of the design:
As you can see, I've added some glossy accents to the heart on Marci's dress and you can also see the bits of sparkle on the paper strips as well as the sparkle on the center flowers.  I've used some Stickles glitter glue on that and of course I put some rhinestones on the heart dies.  As usual, everything is hard to photograph that you want to capture, but I do love the way this turned out.

Here's some product details about my design:
Copis: Skin - E000, E00, E02, R20, R00
Hair - E49, E47, E43, E41
Dress - V12, V01 
paper pieced areas - BG72, 0 (blender)
Boots - E87, E84, E81, V01, gold gel pen

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!!  I hope you were inspired by my design using these really adorable stamps and dies!!  Be sure to hop on over to the La-La Land Crafts blog to see what the other amazingly talented ladies have come up with! :)

I'll be back again shortly with another post for you!  Stay tuned in!
