Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #119

This is my second post of the day, please click here or scroll down to see my card for Practicing Creativity's July release sneak Peek!

Happy Friday, my friends! Thanks for joining my for another card for Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my take on the sketch:

I flipped the sketch and added a few twists of my own. =) The cute image that I used is called Whimsy Town by Angie Davis available at Squigglefly. I love those cute buildings and details! After coloring the image with my Copics, I cut it out then pop dotted over the sky background stamped with the Clouds background stamp from Hero Arts.

The polka dot background was made first by clear-embossing Hero Arts' Cling Dots background stamp,then colored using this technique with my Copic Various Ink Refills. I love that sweet pink! I used Copic Various Ink Refills in R22, RV42 and V000 with a little Pearl Metallic Mixatives from Ranger to get my result. I love learning new techniques!!

The sentiment is from this set also by Hero Arts. The blue polka dot strip is from PTI's Bitty Dots Basics.

Well, that's all I have for now. Don't forget to check out what all the other members of the TESC Sketch Crew came up with for this sketch!! Here are the links:
