edges and used distress inks on my background

I tried coloring with sepia tones for the first time!

the brown pops a bit more than I usually like

DTBST #142 Sketch

This week is a sketch!

Here is my take....

I used Jasmine from the Disney Honey's.
Sorry my picture isn't all that clear! Not sure what happened there.
Her entire outfit was clored with Spice pens
but the sparkle is not coming out real well!
The paper is Street Lace by DCWV.

Scrapper's Delights Next Challenge!

WOW these last two weeks have flown by
and it is already time for the next challenge here at Scrapper's Delights!
This time around the theme was chosen by my Teammie

And the theme is make your own stamped paper.
You can use regular stamps or digi ones to create your paper.

I chose one of the new Hollie Hobbie images (#2)
I used a giant plaid stamp I have had forever on
my background paper.
Used sponged ink on acetate for the second layer.
And used ink to paper "stamp" technique on the actual bag I made.

The poem was one I found in one of my books
by Mary Chandler Huff...
I changed it up a bit to make it's wording bettter.
When I think of Holly Hobbie I think of my childhood which
brought lots of memories SOOOOO
I found a template of a "bag" on Scrapper's Paradise and
decided to make a bag of memories.
The poem says...

Those we love
remain with us...
In the whisper of
the blowing wind
In a soft rain
falling from Heaven
In each sunrise in
the morning
In every star that
lights the night
In every memory
we hold in our heart.

Do you remember having anything Holly Hobbie?

Get on over to the challenge blog and check out everything the DT has come up with!!!
