Papertake Weekly Challenge "Dawny's Sketch #6"

This week over on Papertake Weekly Challenge Blog there is a fab sketch by Dawny. For my card I have used three of the new Valentine collection by Magnolia. Tilda has been coloured with ProMarkers using the following colours...
Ivory/Blush (Skin)
Cocoa (Hair)
Ruby (Hair Bows)
Pastel Pink/Cocoa (Clothing)

To colour the background stamp and sentiment I used two VersaMagic ink pads. First I took "Pixie Dust" and inked inked the edges gently drawing the colour further towards the centre of the image so that it wasn't too white. I then took "Jumbo Java" and just inked carefully on the edge of the cardstock. The papers are DCWV "The Sweet Range" and the cardstock is Stampin' Up "Choc Chip". The final touches are Bazzill tulle ,a red heart pin and Sakura clear glitter gel pen on Tilda's hair the heart on the envelope and on the "italic words" on the image and sentiment.

Pop on over to the blog to see what the Papertake Weekly DT came up really is well worth a good look.
