Melody in Red

Click on any image to enlarge.
This card and the one below were done following the sketch at
http://www.sketchandstashchallenge.blogspot.com/. We were to use our newest item or anything from our stash on the card. I used a new digi-stamp that I found at: http://www.pollycraftdesigns.blogspot.com/ for this one and a Precious Moments digi-stamp for the one below. This lovely lady's name is Melody. I loved the fact that I would be able to use several colors in her dress.

I've been looking at the way the talented ladies on the design teams do their coloring and shading, and I'm trying to improve on the way I do so. Mine was done with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I found this sweet paper in a small pack in some of my paper searches so it was easy to pick out the colors for her dress, the "ribbons" are from a cordinating paper. I used the MS hydrangea punches for the flowers with pearls in the center. I haven't figured out who to send it to yet, or for what, so my sentiment is missing, but I will be cutting it with my Cricut.

TFL,
