that's charming...

Good morning everyone. It's Sunday again so it is time for the Anyone for Anya? challenge. This weeks challenge is entitled "That's Charming." For this card I used one of the new stamps I picked up a couple of weeks ago, Lottie from the Greeting Farm. I colored her to match my Memory Box, Rhubarb Tart designer paper using my Prismacolor pencils blending with odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump. Her flesh and the shadows are done with Copic markers. I added a little gold heart charm that I had in my stash. When putting it all together I decided that the Midnight Madness sketch this week was perfect for this card. Don't ya think? The way the ribbon wraps around the big panel made it the perfect spot to add a charm.
What I used:
The Greeting Farms Lottie from the Twinkle Tots collection
GP white, SU basic black card stock
black and red gingham ribbon
heart charm
Prismacolor pencils, OMS and blending stump
Copic markers

Oh my giddy aunt Debi - this is just adorable - does it get any sweeter than this!?!? I love that image and the colors you have used are so delish! I am loving this Debi right down to that gingham ribbon and the heart embellishment - perfect, especially with the red bow - great touch! Thanks for playing along at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge this week Debi - we love to see your cards and look forward to seeing you play again soon! {{{hugs}}}
