"Just wanted to tell you"....Motivet

I used last weeks Creative Corner sketch for this card....I am a little late for the challenge....but it was a fun sketch to use anyway!!

Both the stamps on this card are from Motivet....This sweet Doraline is called "Doraline - Sorry" The sentiment is called "I just wanted to say..." I think this little Doraline and this sentiment is so versatile......she looks ready to deliver any greeting....so I will add one later inside the card.

I've colored Doraline with copics first as a base under my prismacolor pencils. I then used h20's to deepen the shade..and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the was from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

Both the nestie panel, Doraline and the main flower is popped up on foam dimensionals. I've also placed one under the center of the sentiment...to raise it. I've used diamond glaze on the bow and shoes ...(can hardly see it in the photo though)

I cut out the pink felt flower with my flower spellbinders die. It worked perfectly!! I discovered a container full of felt sheets I had stored away from my older crafting days....Thank goodness I never threw them out. It really made my day to find them...I tell ya'...lol.

Ink - memento black, bashful blue, creamy caramel

Paper - GP white, treasures CS, My Minds Eye, Basic Grey

Accessories - dew drops, flowers, felt, trim, lace, buttons, MS leaf punch, SU flower punch, pearls, stitching, embroidery thread, diamond glaze.

Have a Great Day Everyone!!...and Thank you so much for your Lovely Comments!!!
