Cheeky Glamour

Sweet Sunday sketch is quickly becoming one of my fave sketch challenges. I made this card for this weeks sketch. I knew I wanted to give this Cheeky girl some ink and thought she would look best with a vintage look. I went through my dp and came across this piece of dp in the BG Marrakech collection. She is colored with copics and sponged with PTI aqua mist ink. I actually couldnt see her as anything other than blonde so I went with it. I get stuck on brunettes for some reason. I guess there are just more combos to use and play around with for brunettes or maybe its b/c Im a brunette. I used another new to me border punch and actually pulled out my scallop nesties. I havent used those in awhile. I used 3 primas on this card! Im getting better!LOL! I even gave the Cheeky girl some rhinestone earrings. I didnt have a chance to take a pic of the copics so I thought I'd break them down for you here b/c I did leave them layed out.

Wow Shannon, she is super glam! Adore your colouring, and the fact you can do it with your kids. I'd get nothing constructive done with my toddlers at the craft table! Love her earrings!

Fabulous! Love her earrings! Hmmm...must be a haircolor thing because I get stuck on blonds and that's my color.
