Sweet Sketch Wednesday #58

Good Morning!  I hope you're having a great week so far.  It's Wednesday so we have another great sketch from Arlana at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, we have plenty of inspiration from the team and we have a great sponsor.  We have Digi Stamp Characters with us and the prize 3 digi images!



Great sketch, right?!  And here's what I did with it...


I had a lot of fun using the image that was so graciously provided by owner, Heather Ellis.  I did use the current challenge over at Just Us Girls, too, which is a technique called Ink Spray Smash.  What a fun technique.  Its what I used to create the background.

Supplies:
Card Stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Gable Green, Lavender Lace, Glossy White
Copics:  B00, B02, BG01, BG05, BV00, BV04, E00, E02, E33, E37, E53, E57, RV02
Stamps & Ink:  Sentiment (Inkadinkadoo), Gable Green, Lavender Lace and Bashful Blue
Tools:  CM oval cutter, circle punches, Cuttlebug and Swirls Embossing Folder, white gel pen
Embellishments:  Ribbon, paper flowers, brad

I hope you enjoy the card and join us this week. Head on over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday to find out how to play!  Have an awesome Wednesday.
