Especially because today is a new release month!!! I am SO excited to introduce you to a BRAND NEW stamp today!! There are SO many new stamps in the house you are not going to be able to contain yourself!!
Today is a sketch challenge. Such a great way to start creating!! It's a great jumping off point when your mojo is a little 'stuck'.
Let me introduce you to Virgo!! She is a gorgeous creation from the hands of Che Gilson. The colors of the Virgo are green and brown so I went to my stash and grabbed bits and pieces of some of my favorite designer papers and just started mixing and matching!!
I colored Virgo with my Copics and sparkly Sakura pens. I pretty much kept to the sketch adding stitching, of course, as I can't seem to make a card without it!! ;)
In lieu of the double ribbon, I decided to go with a ruffly ribbon which I LOVE doing. I try a different ruffle technique every time I use this style. Sometimes I staple, sometimes I use standard runner adhesive, sometimes I use glue dots and sometimes I stitch. This time I used a stapling technique.
I just love the ruffle and the way it looks 'different' depending on the technique that I use!!
Now off you scoot to the WIS blog to see what gorgeousness is happening over there!!
And don't forget to check out the 3 BRAND NEW stamp lines at The Castle!!! Get your wallet out!!! =)
