OCC challenge - Sketch

This week at Our Creative Corner, we have a sketch challenge hosted by OCC design team member, Kim Teasdale. I just love sketch challenges. They give me the much needed direction I need lately!! Here is what I came up with using the sketch:

I just had to break out my new stamps from The Greeting Farm! I just adore the Miss Anya stamps! I figured they would work well for my new found love for paper piecing. I colored her skin, hair and boots with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. then I paper pieced the rest of her outfit. I then added Matte Accents to her boots, hair ties and hearts on her purse to add a bit of sheen, but not gawdy shine. I added the punched border beside her and cut and embossed with an oval Nestabilities. Cut another Nestie oval and layered them together. Added the layers to the card and put Miss Anya on with pop dots. Added pearls, tied a quick bow and added 'sassy' to the bow.
Materials: PAPER: Colormates-Heritage White & Doublemates-Pretty Pink w/ rich shade outside (WorldWin Papers), Euphoria PP (Basic Grey) STAMPS: Miss Anya (The Greeting Farm), sassy (Making Memories) INK: Versafine-Onyx Black (Tsukineko) OTHER: Nestabilities - Classic Ovals (Spellbinders), Treading Water Punch (Fiskars) Prismacolor Pencils/Gamsol, Pink Pearls (Kaisercraft), Matte Accents (Ranger), Grograin Ribbon, Pop Dots

Hope to see you on the OCC!! Have a creatively wonderful day!

Thank you for sharing this card in the design team for OCC. I liked the sketch but was getting caught up with which papers to use then I scrolled down and found your card and it totally put me back on track! I too used the card colour for the back layer.
