Make A Wish PP386

March 24, 2018

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!!

I am the hostess this week and I have a fun sketch challenge for all of you!  You know I love layers and details, so I am excited to visit all of your blogs and see your creations!

My sweet GRANDdaughter Addison turns nine this week.  I am not sure where the time has gone, but I wanted to create a special card for her day.  She still loves princesses and her favorite colors are pink and yellow.  I created a smooched watercolored panel using distress inks for the background.  I used an old border die in my stash to create the pink and yellow circle border.  I do not know who makes this die.  It may be retired.  A large white circle was cut using the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag circle dies.  I cut two scraps of DSP with the MFT Fishtail flag dies.  White twine was tied around the top part of the card.  The little princess is from Your Next Stamps.  The Little Darling Fairy Godmother was colored with Copic Markers and cut out using the matching dies.  I added a lot of Wink of Stella for shine.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Enamel dots were added to complete the card.  I also added white gel pen accents on her dress.  I know Miss Addison will love her card.

  2. Claire, I loved this sketch. It was so much fun to work with. And your card - gorgeous! I love the sweet little princess, the colors, and your fab background! Hope you are enjoying the grands this weekend!

  3. This is just adorable, just like her! I am amazed at the details and coloring you've achieved...those little dots on her dress are just so dear! The whole thing is divine! Addison will love it!

  4. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous Claire - Miss Addison will love it! Your sweet princess is adorable and I love the extra details. Fabulous background too - I thought it was DSP, I wish I could create watercolour panels like that! What a fabulous sketch this week - I can't stop using it!!

  5. Thanks for the challenge, Claire. I so often avoid many layers but this challenge reminded me that they're fun. I love your personalised card for your granddaughter - she can't help but love it. I hadn't realised you'd smooshed up your own background for it and the way you've inlaid the yellow dots into the scallop border is just another of the many fine details you've included. Enjoy your day!
