A Surprise Cheer

Hello, all! Here is a card that I made for Super Sketch #102 over at PWCO Blog. Please click on the link to see the sketch that we were supposed to follow.


I used the adorable A Surprise Cheer for my card.


The image is stamped on watercolor paper and colored with a combination of Prismacolor, Lyra and Faber Castell color pencils. The colors are then blended with baby oil. The image is then cut and embossed using a Classic Rectangles Large die. I matted it with a piece of patterned paper before stitching the layers together.


The patterned paper is from Everyday Flair 6x6 Designer Paper Pad by My Mind's Eye. I used both sides of the Scallops On The Edge Die on the patterned paper. The sentiment comes with this stamp.

That' all for now. Have a lovely day, my friends! =)





Thanks for stopping by!
