Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #14

Today's challenge from Makeesha for her Inkspiration Challenges is a sketch. And here is the sketch - super cute and you could really do alot with this one.

Here's my creation:

I've teamed up Forest Friends stamp set with Sweet Always Designer Paper. These colours work well together and seeing as this card is for a sweet little girl - it's a perfect combination.

I've started of with a base card in Regal Rose, then layered DP and cardstock as per the sketch.

For the main image, I've coloured in the tree with the SU markers and stamped directly onto the cardstock. The bunny and owl have been stamped onto Whisper White, cut out and then mounted onto the card.

I've used Best Yet (hostess stamp set) for the sentiment and placed it in one of the images from Gallery - a new set from the Spring Mini. To get it all lined up nicely I have used the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Then I've cut it out and also mounted onto the card with dimensionals.

I've finished off the card with some Pink Pirouette ribbon and a flower brad.

Here's a closer look at some of the detail:

Product Used:
Stamp Set: Forest Friends, Gallery, Best Yet
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, DP Sweet Always
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Certain Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette
Others: Flower & Brad, Grosgrain Striped ribbon, Dimensionals, Sponging, SU Marker pens
