Cheerful Sketches Guest Designer

Hello friends!  Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend!  I just got back from a lovely weekend trip with hubby and we had such a great time visiting over in Hannibal, MO.  This was something we both really needed to just get away for a bit and it was wonderful to be able to go and do something fun!

Today I’m sharing my creation I made as a guest designer for the Cheerful Sketches challenge blog.  (I had won a spot with one of my creations I had entered.)  I was also shared the sketch and an image to work with:

The was a company that I have heard of before, but this is the first time that I have actually colored one up.  This is from the My Bestie Shop in their Harvest Collection called Harvest Besties Doll 25.

Here’s the sketch below that was provided for me to follow:

Cheerful Sketches10-2019

I took the image and colored it up and cut it out the size I needed for my card and layered it with some dark brown cardstock.  I took some sunflower style papers from my stash and placed a piece over a 5.5″ square dark brown top folding card base.

I cut out a couple of squares for each corner of the card and layered a scallop die cut square to each one with some orange colored cardstock.  I also took a strip of this same orange cardstock and attached it diagonally across it.

Lastly, I took the image panel and wrapped some seam binding ribbon around it with a bow, twine and button.  For the seam binding ribbon, I spritzed it with water and crinkled it up a bit and let it dry before adding to my card.  I then added some Fall Prima flowers around the design.

Here’s a closer view of the image and how I’ve colored her up with Copic markers.  For the gold glittery details in the Fall sentiment and around her (including the buttons on her shoes), I’ve taken a Quickie Glue Pen to color it in with and then added some pretty Fall gold glitter over it.

The edges of this image panel were sponged with some Tea Dye Distress Ink and then sprayed with water for the water dropplet marks.

She has put me in the mood to go to the pumpkin patch and bring one home!
