Sketch Saturday 190: Sew Awesome

Hi all,

I'm playing along with today's layout over on the Sketch Saturday blog: #190.  Love these sketches!
Here it is:

I decided to use one of Kristy's newer clear releases - a Valentine's image!  The big day is coming, you know.

Here's mine:
My card base is Sahara Sand CS, my patterned papers are from Basic Grey's pack called Olivia, and everything has black mats.  The strip across the middle was punched with an SU scallop edge punch, and I added some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon around that. 
I also added a corner with my SU Photo Corner punch, and I added 3 rhinestones to that, and 3 more to the other corners on the base. 
I stamped the sentiment (which comes with the image) in black ink onto the patterned paper. 

I stamped the thread spool from In Stitches Tia onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memeto Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured it with Copics and cut it out using Classic Circle Nesties.  I added some shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS and I added some sponging to the inside of the stencil using Wheat Versamagic ink. 
I stamped Tia onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Onyx Versafine ink and embossed her with Clear EP.  I coloured her with Copics, cut her out with a thin white border, and mounted her on top of the spool with foam dots. 
She's adorable!!!

By the way, Kristy is having a 2-year birthday celebration and new releases next week, so keep your eye on the SOG blog for lots of fun stuff!!!  You will love it!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
