For Saturday’s Sweet Stop sketch I decided to use this darling image from Penny Black’s Tiny Wishes Stamp set. The hedgehog was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Solar White cardstock. The image was cut out with Classic Square Nestabilities dies and the Out of the Box Technique.

The image was colored with Copic Markers ( Hedgehog: E40, E41, E43, E44, E47, E49   Mushrooms: T0, T1, T4, E01, E02, E04   Ladybug: R27, R59   Grass: G24, G28   Sky: B0000, B000, B01) and layered on a piece of Canyon Brown  cardstock, cut and embossed with a Beaded Square Nestabilities die. The edges of the image layer were paper pierced.

A 2 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Stella & Rose Hazel Paper was adhered to a 4 3/4″ square from the same paper pack. Melissa Frances white lace was adhered on the bottom of the horizontal strip before the layers were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock. Brown May Arts Organdy ribbon was tied above the lace.

The edges of a 2 1/2″ x  3 1/2″ piece of Hazel and a 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Stella & Rose Hattie Paper were stitched before they were adhered to the center of the layers along with the image layers. All the layers were adhered to the card base, a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half.

A sentiment from the set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Neenah White cardstock which had been cut and embossed with a Spellbinders die. The embossed part was colored with Copic Marker B0000. Recollections flowers as well as Champagne Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card.

I hope you have time to try out the sketch. Having “crooked” layers is hard for me, but it was fun. Always nice to be pushed out of the comfort zone.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
