Sweet Image from Brazil...

I have received several packages of stamped images from new friends this past week. One package from Pam S. who lives here in the USA and another from Regina R. who lives in Brazil. I wanted to give the Friday Sketcher's challenge a try using some of these images... here is the sketch, and the first image I chose to use...

Regina (and also Vivi) is keeping me supplied with hAnglar images, which I cannot access except through someone who already has the stamps, as they are sold only in Norway and Sweeden. You have to have connections to get these sweet images. Regina also sent me this darling image from Rachel Ann Miller at Stampavie and I have chosen to make the first sketch card with. Don't know the company who produces her but isn't she just the sweetest? I have also received many Tilda and Edwin images from two American friends who both have the name of Pam. So look for cards using Tilda images too.

I colored her with my Copic Markers then punch out the circle panels using my Nestability Circle and Scalloped Circle dies. After I had her colored I went hunting for just the right dsp, usually I color to match an already chosen dsp. Hooray! I had just the right piece left in my scrap bin.

The little flowers along the bottom are from Hobby Lobby Wedding Department. They were white shimmery and I colored them with Copic's to match the flowers in the dsp. For the flower at the top I layered three different flowers, from three different companies and then added the little daisy charm on the chain. I did sewing around the two panels of dsp and added doodles around my circle panel.

Here is a close-up of my coloring on the image...

I finished the inside of my card with scraps of left over cardstock and dsp. I have a little more dsp, so I can see another card in the making soon...
