Hello Everyone! It is Saturday and that means it is SWEET STOP SKETCH DAY! I love having a sketch to Inspire me and this week, our sketch has a TWIST!
I created a 4 1/4" x 5" sheet of card stock using the Dream Weaver Paste and the Basket Weave Stencil. (I placed the stencil on an angle and used the handy dandy Dreamweaver Stencils Spreader) and allowed it to dry for a half an hour. I then used the Ranger Perfect Medium Clear and tapped on the raised embossed edges and then stippled the Aged Patina - Pewter on that. Using Black Staz On Ink, I stamped the Susana Loves Stamps, Come Hither Eyes image over the Pasted/ pearled area and cut out the skirt portion to paper piece her outfit. 

To clean my stamp, I used the FABULOUS ScraPerfect Best Cleaner Ever. Have you heard of this product?  I personally am cleaned stamps that I had built up Staz On ink on it easily!

I stamped the Come Hither Eyes image a second time using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored her skin with Copic Markers E00 and E11 Using the Onyx Inspiration Paints for her hair, Garnet Inpisrations Paint for her lips and heart bow, Blush Inspiration Paints for her cheeks and a Tim Holtz Detailer Brush to paint 

 On the shirt/ top and wings of the Come Hither Eyes image I used the very corner of the Ranger Perfect Medium Clear pad and traced around the edges. I then stippled the Aged Patina - Pewter onto the top and used the Perfect Pearls Metallic, Perfect Pearl on the wings to give her wings a touch of shimmer!

Here is our sketch this week! :)

I included a few different angles so you can see the SHIMMER - unless you see this IN REAL LIFE you can only imagine it!

To create the background, I used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pumice Stone on the vanilla card stock. I then tapped the Perfect Pearls Metallic, Perfect Pearl  over the entire background. Stamping the Unity Painted Punchinella image in Versamark (refills are here too!). I cleaned the stamp off and repeated that step to cover the entire background.

 Now, remember this week's Challenge is to use a RUFFLE, so I used the Technique Junkie Newsletter and the DOUBLE RUFFLE technique from the April/ May 2012 Issue.

Once adhering all of the pieces together, the shimmer was FANTASTIC but I felt like the card needed something else, so I grabbed one of my FAVORITE Viva Decor Products, the Viva Pearl Pen Black and added some drops to finish this off.

I hope you enjoyed my project today! When you are done looking here, please take some time to be inspired by the Sugar Babies creations: Cathy McCauleyMonika DavisJanice MeltonShannon White and Shelby Goolsby
