Motivet DT - Sketch #53

I couldn't help but use this older but favorite Motivet stamp for this sketch. She just fits for perfectly!! This cute stamp is called "Doraline with ladybug"

Check out the # 53 sketch challenge at the Motivet Inspiration Blog. to see the DT's Beautiful creations. Join in the challenge and you will have a chance to win some Gorgeous Motivet stamps.

The image is colored with copics under the prismacolor pencils and a touch h20's to deepen the shade and add a little sparkle. *(Please remember.....do not use copics over prismacolor pencils or the wax from the pencils will ruin your copic tips!)*

There is glitter on Doraline's collar, cuffs, tiny flowers and the white button heart. I've used Shimmerz on the larger flowers. I also got a chance to use my lovely MS heart punch..(what a lovely punch!)... The sentiment is cut from an SU stamp set.

Ink - memento black, bordering blue. Papers - GP white, Treasures, Basic Grey Bittersweet, dcwv. Accessories - flowers, roses (from my good friend Tina), ribbons, button, pearls, glitter, embroidery floss, tulle, angle wings shimmerz, stitching.

It has been freezing cold here....our usual January weather. It is suppose to warm up by the weekend...but we'll see. Most of our long range forecasts are just something hopeful to look forward too...but ya' never know.

Have a Great Day!!....and Thank You so much for your Lovely comments!!!

So darned cute!

Lori said...

This is a soft, "romantic" feeling kind of card, Ila. You've done a marvelous job with it!!! I love the flowers, the punch, the tulle and of course your wonderfully colored image! I've never used prismacolor pencils with copics before. Does the pen blend the pencil?

Thanks for sharing your info.

Happy New Year, my friend :)

Love and hugs ~ Lori

Sandy said...

Oh this is darling.
Absolutely awesome. A dream of a card. Lovely work Ila. Hugs.

Lori said...

Wow... thanks for your quick response! I did read that about not using copics over the pencil. I guess I had a "duh" moment - lol! So then the pencil does the shading/detail OVER the base copic - right??? I've only used copics which I enjoy immensely, but it's always nice to learn different techniques. Thanks for your help, my friend :D
Love and hugs ~ Lori
