Sketch Saturday - Sketch #39

Here is my card using this weeks sketch over on the Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog. For the main image I have used a PollyCraft "Sherbert" that I stamped yesterday before I left Marlene's (thanks Babe). I have coloured "Sherbert" with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Scattered Straw/Dried Marigold/Spiced Marmalade (Hair)
Broken China (Eyes)
Broken China/Spiced Marmalade/Fired Brick (Dress)
Peeled Pain (Socks)
Spiced Marmalade (Shoes)
Peeled Paint/Fired Brick (Flowers & Grass)
Weathered Wood (Sky)
The papers are all by My Minds Eye "Magnolia - Serene" and came in a paper pad from The Range. Unlike normal MME papers, which are more like cardstock, these are paper weight. I have also used Prima Blossoms, Doodlebug sugar coated brads and a sentiment also from PollyCrafts. To finish off "Sherbert" has Sakura clear glitter gel pen in her hair and Stickles "Waterfall" on her wings.

Here is a closeup on the main image and flowers.

Finally here is a picture of the decorated insides, using the scraps up...well most of them.
Really enjoyed making this today..."Sherbert" was a dream to colour...so much so that I ended up ordering a couple of different ones..plus the sentiment. Pop over to Sketch Saturday and see what the DT came up with to inspire us...their cards are FAB.
