Little Precious ~ a sketch, and color challenges

I made this card for three challenges. It was for the sketch challenge on SCS today, and also the Stampin Sisters in Christ color challenge (to use the colors of fall) and the OCCC challenge, to use Chocolate, Pink, Hot Pink and White. I think I got them all! I love these new BasicGrey papers in the Indian Summer set! The fall colors are so warm and rich! So I chose three different patterns from that pack that met the qualifications and arranged the sketch. My image is a new one for me... my first Sarah Kay. I had to have it when I saw it. It so reminds me of my grand daughter... blond, cute and in love with her kitty! Anyway... I inked her with Archival Jet black and stamped on 140 LB Watercolor Paper. I used the wet on wet technique to color her with SU! Markers. I then cut her out and popped her up, cutting a second bow for her hair and spraying that with Tattered Rose Glimmer Mist before popping it up slightly. I added some pink ribbon by MS. The base is Papertrey Dark Chocolate and the Pink is SU! run through with the Cuttlebug embossing folder, swiss dot.

This one was just for fun! Hope you enjoy it!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow when I will have a sneak peek for you of the October release from Our Daily Bread designs! Hope to see you then!
