Friday Sketchers #11...Thinking of you!!!

So, I have had a lot of time this weekend to stamp, make cards, scrapbook and hang with my good friend, Dana, it has been so much fun!!! I was also very happy to be able to play along with this weeks Friday Sketchers. This weeks sketch is by one of my favourite stamper/cardmakers out there in the blogoshpere. Claudia is a very talented lady and I am often in awe at her creations as she makes such complex stamping scenes, has such stunning colouring technique with Copics and is so creative in the use of her stamps. I visit her blog regularly and learn sooo much from her as she is always willing to share her knowledge and creativity with us through her tutorials. So, It was great being able to work with one of her sketches and it was a blast!!!

I made this card again with my BasicGrey Euphoria pp and Bazzill Basics cardstock Monochromatic Juneberry and Sweetheart. I only have two sets of Circle Nestibilites so I cut the scalloped rectangle out of Bazzill Basics cardstock on my QK Silhouette using a GSD file that I bought and downloaded from Kreations by Katie. I stamped Tilda with Flower Jeans, from the Magnolia summer Stampclub, on Georgia Pacific paper with Archival Brilliance Graphite Balck ink. I coloured her in with my Copics and cut her out. I added a little Stardust gelly roller pen to her wings and the swirls on her jeans. I stamped the Magnolia chair stamp on the Georgia Pacific paper and cut it to fit the scalloped mat. I coloured the chair with my Copics again and then adhered Tida with pop-dots. I wasn't sure if this Tilda was a bit too big for this chair but, oh well, I don't think it looks that bad. I thought it looked like she is resting her foot on the rung of the chair,cute! To embelish this card I cut the butterfly with a QK die out of the plastic packaging that the QK dies come in and coloured around the edges with a Ranger paint dabber. The sentiment is from those great little 1.50 Studio G stamps that you pick up at Micheals...gotta love them and the ribbon is American craft.

Well, my head is starting to ache and my tummy is growling, so I guess I should eat. I just realized I haven't done that yet today, it sooo gets in the way of all my stamping and blogging,lol!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
