I started off doing the original sketch, but my card wanted to go the route of the bonus sketch instead. I used Buttons and Stella, plus the daffodils from the newest DoodleFactory Easter release. If you look closely, I jazzed up their outfits with some embroidery thread and copper brads. I had something completely different in mind when I started this card, but I'm still happy with the final outcome. The ribbon text is a rub-on I received in a booklet from ScrapAddicted. This is my first time using rub-ons, but I think I may be in love with them!
Just so you know, I was originally inspired by this work by Claire Mojher. I loved the black and white drawings enhanced by the splash of color and texture and wanted to give it a try with my stamps. I thought I'd be giving my copics a rest, but I guess I just can't resist coloring everything! I am going to give it another try though because I really like the look. Too bad I don't have an embroidery machine to make it really perfect.
