Little Friends for JAI sketch #142

I am so excited to ink up my brand new Little Friends stamp set that arrived this week and what better way to do it than a little inspiration from a Just Add Ink sketch. Check out the great cards from the DT ladies here.

I decided to paper piece the little girls dress so she pretty much set the tone for the rest of the card. Normally I would do a big red bow on the present but when I chose the spotty paper from the Festival of Prints DSP stack for the dress I knew the bow would get lost. I flicked through the pack looking for background paper and the bashful blue caught my eye so next came the blue bow on the present. The image was coloured using SU! inks and my trust blender pen.

 My biggest mistake was stamping onto whisper white, I probably should have used Very Vanilla to match in with the DSP, sooo to overcome that I simply sponged a little crumb cake and coloured the petticoat and armband on the dress to take away the stark whiteness( is that even a word!)

Here is the card:

 Everything was matted on Cherry Cobbler and then Crumb Cake. The sentiment was punched out with the window label punch and trimmed on one side and a nice bow to finish off.

This is the sketch:

Why don't you join in the fun at Just Add Ink and inspire someone.
