Hello everyone! I made this card for the Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge # 179. I love this sketch because it allows me to use up pretty scraps of paper. You can find this sketch and the details here: OWH Sketch # 179
I flipped the sketch so that I could use this image and had to adjust a couple of the measurements to accommodate the paper bits I wanted to use (well, use up actually.) :)
This beautiful darling is Saturated Canary's "Nevaeh" and I just think she is so pretty. Another card artist (so sorry I can not remember who) added mini pearls to this dress and I could not wait to try it, although I used pearl pen so it would not have too much dimension for Operation Write Home. You can purchase this lovely image here:
I used Spectrum Noir's Coral Reds (my favorites) on her dress, specifically CR5, CR4, & CR3. I used Copics on her hair. E40, E42, & E43 (Spectrum Noir's EB1 matches Copic's E40, however Spectrum Noir does not have anything similar to Copic's E42 & E43.)
The papers were from my scrap pile and I hate to admit, they were rather "mature"......I hate saying old....they have been lovingly preserved in my paper keeper. So I do not even have paper companies to list.
I used my Cricut for the fancy scroll (Accent Essentials Cartridge and I cut it on white and then colored it with the same colors I used on her dress) and the scalloped edge was from the Elegant Edges Cartridge. I added a couple pearls and gems for sparkle and some Glossy Accents on her shoes and eyes.
The sentiment is a Penny Black Wood Mount stamp dated 2007 and the pearl pen on her dress is my favorite Viva Decor Pearl Pen in Ice White.
Thank you for stopping by!
