Sketch Saturday #101: Stepsisters

Pinch punch, it's the 1st of the month! Hee hee!  (and the start of a 3-day weekend for us Brits!)

This week over at Sketch Saturday it's the wonderful Maya's turn to set the sketch, and what a fab sketch it is:

I decided to use this great image called 'Stepsisters' by Mo Manning (available HERE).  As you may have heard, Stamping Bella is manufacturing some of Mo's digi stamps in lovely rubbah, and the best news is that Elaine is stocking them at Quixotic Paperie!!  Woo-hoo!  You can get your inky hands on them HERE!

I took my colour scheme from my fab Fancy Pants 12x12 papers (available HERE).  I actually mixed 2 different 'lines' - the green paper is called 'Aunt' and is from the 'My Family' collection (available HERE) and the yellow flowery paper is called 'Umbrella' and is from the 'Rusted Sun' collection (available HERE)!  I distressed the edges of the DP and the image with my trusty Versamagic Dew Drop chalk inks as I felt it matched the softness of the papers.  A punched border, some ribbon, a few flowers and some pearls and it was done!

Thank you, as ever, for stopping by!  I'd also like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who regularly pops by my blog and leaves me such wonderful comments.  I cherish each and every one, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time.  You know who you all are - you are the BEST!!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
