Ismaki #22

..is a sketch by Manue!! Her beautiful sketches are always a challenge for me but that is great because it makes me think!! I didn't do the sketch the way she posted it as I don't have many vertical stamps! (But I guess this is a reason to run out and get some!!) (LOL) I am not sure that would fly with Charlie(my dear husband)!! Anyway so I rotated it 90 degrees. The option was to use the color red. The first paper I found was this by Bo Bunny so I went with that!! I think the color combo in this paper is so pretty!! This is the last of the Elizabeth Bell images I have!! What am I going to do now!! (LOL) I knew I should have gotten all 6!! (It is all I can afford since I have to pay 2x as much!!) I colored my image with Distress Inks. For some reason her shirt looks more brownish in the picture but it is really a brighter yellow! I used American Craft flowers, dew drops and brads from my stash. The sentiment is from CHF. I also hit a couple spots with my silver glitter pen. (Ok more than a couple but I can't help it once I start I just keep going with that pen!!)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!!
