Paperbabe Challenge ~ #97 Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday Creative Friends, 

 This fortnight we give you a Sketch prompt. 
Use the design below, let your creativity flow 
and come share your creations with us HERE ... 

There's a Paperbabe prize each fortnight..

Let me take you through this CAS journal page... 

Masking off an area at a jaunty angle peeled paint and broken china 
DOx are applied with a blending tool. I just love those blues and green's. 
Droplets of water expose the white underneath when lifted off with tissue.

Onto Kraft card I stamped profiles from both LEFT and RIGHT Dinky sets 
and used the Dinky hair templates to help guide those flowing locks.

Colouring the images in pencil the masks within the dinky 
template set protect the detail whilst adding that DOx blend.

The little freckle stamp in the profile set fits neatly 
on the end of my finger, dipped into salty ocean DOx 
it's dabbed amongst those background splashes.

Removing the masking tape reveals a clean crisp line 
where stamps taken from the alphabet BUNDLE build the 
word Sisters bringing both image and word together.

Sending a simple harmonious message 
that we're all Sisters under the same sky.

Pop on over HERE to see what the DT have created and
 come join us in this fortnights Paperbabe Challenge. 

Take Care everyone and 
look after one another..

Creative Hugs 
Tracey xx
