MTTSC4 - Cindy Walks On The Wild Side

Happy Twinkling Tuesday everyone! Ready for a new sketch? I had a lot of fun with this one, it was just my style! Also perfect for Miss Cindy out for a stroll from Pink Papery Studios. You can find her in the Simply Wonderland set. Here's my card:

As soon as I saw this sketch I knew I wanted to use this image. I just love how she's looking back over her shoulder! I masked her off and stamped the oval, then colored her with my Copic markers, and then I added Shimmerz on her hair and boots - Sunflower on the hair and Pink Poinsettia Blingz on the boots. Tough to see even in the angled shot so you'll have to take my word for it. I used white flock on her boot cuffs and hat puff - couldn't resist that! So cute in real life. I took a close up which hopefully shows a little more of the shimmer and dimension.

See that yum, yum, yummy background paper? Oh yeah, that's the new Basic Grey Bittersweet!!! Run, don't walk to get some. I LOVE the color combination in this packet and the patterns are delish. I got mine from Limelight Papercrafts {actually, I got two! ha!}. It came just in time to use on this card, thanks Mandy!! This pattern is just fabulous, it makes me think WILD.

I did double ribbon behind the main image, 5/8" chocolate chip grosgrain with 1/4" light pink over the top. I didn't tie off both layers of ribbon because it got too bulky and wouldn't sit flat so I had to revise that plan at the last minute! My cardstock colors are Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip.

The sentiment is from the Simply Bath set. Since all the Pink Papery Studios images I have are digi, I can easily change things around to suit my immediate needs - as you can see from the link that sentiment is originally one long line. Snip snip in Photoshop Elements and I have it perfectly sized and laid out for a circle. I really am loving the digital images - SO much flexibility!

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you visit the blogs of the rest of the Twinkle Team to get more inspiration for this sketch, and play along! Link your creation to Jessica's blog and if you upload to SCS or PCP use the keyword "MTTSC4".

I LOVE the flock on her boots. It looks better then the heat set puffy stuff that I use. Guess I'll be using flock again! Great job with the sketch.
