Good Morning! I woke up early this morning and actually had a bit of creativity juice flowing. And that was before I had coffee. LOL!
I had really wanted to play along with The Sweet Stop challenge last week, but I just couldn't fit it into my schedule. So I got a jump on this week's sketch.
I have had this digi Milton Reading for weeks now and finally got to play with him. This week's sketch was awesome and my card went together rather easily. I love it when that happens.

And this next card I made is for 3 challenges. Raise the Bar (distress), Just Magnolia (vintage), Friday Sketchers (the sketch). All these challenges were absolutely fabulous. I haven't done vintage before, so this was a challenge. The sketch was great to work with, but I left off the embellishments in the lower right corner because I felt it would be too much with everything else I had going on on the card.
This was a lot of fun to make. I really experimented with this one. After coloring the image with Copic markers, I went back over her shirt and socks with Memento Ink and a blender pen. I'm not sure you can tell in this photo, but I did stamp her wings a second time and cut them out. Partly because I hated how I colored her wings in the first place. Trust me, you don't want to know. But this gave me a chance to distress the edges of her wings a bit and add a bit of dimension. I also "tea dyed" the lace trim with ink and a sponge. It would've looked better coffee stained, but I didn't have the time for it to dry and I didn't know what that would've done to adhesive strip.
