Reach for the Stars

It's another Sweet Sunday and this is a LONG post so I hope you have a full cup of coffee!  Karen has a great sketch for us this week; and there is a Design team call!!

First here is this weeks sketch (SSSC161)  This is the sketch for the design team call (details  are at the end of the post)


 In order to use Mabel Reaching for the Stars from Stamping Bella I flipped the sketch.


The image is stamped with versafine black ink onto water colour paper, on the stars I added some gold embossing powder.  That's the great thing about the versafine is that you have time to emboss if you want.  The image is coloured with distress makers.  On the stars I added some shine with viva inka gold.  On her bow I added some shimmer with star dust stickles.  The shading around the image is done with tumbled glass distress ink.  The ds paper is MME's Away we Go.  Instead of flowers I used TCP's cloud border and cut one that I wanted then added a MFT stacking stars die namics.  The banners are done with MFT's die-namic first place award ribbon. 

I decorated the inside of my card and added some clouds with the TCP cloud border which were cut on cream cs then shaded with the tumbled glass distress ink.  I then added some MFT stacking stars die-namics.  The sentiment comes with the stamp from Stamping Bella.


Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday stampers blogs AND our guest designer for this week to see their creations.


Ok here are the details for the Sweet Sunday Design team call - if you are entering the call please make sure you add your card on Karen's blog correctly!

Dana, she's darling! You've inspired me to pull out my watercolour paper today and get a little messy with my aqua painter! LOL!

Hope you are enjoying the sunshine this morning! It's 6:30 and I don't see a cloud in the sky but I know that it will change soon :( We need sun!
