Just found out some awesome news! My oldest son will be receiving a football scholarship beginning this fall. We are all very excited. He's put in the hours and worked really hard for the recognition. The extra financial aid will help tremendously and take a huge weight off his shoulders.
I had a little time yesterday evening to work on this little image. This is Nevaeh from Saturated Canary. I love this image. So girly and innocent, but with a flair of naughtiness.
I colored Nevaeh with my Copic markers. I wanted to give the image a hint of Springtime, so I decided on pastel yellow and gave her petticoat a greenish tint. I then cut her out with my oval Nestie and sponged around the edges with some Tim Holtz Distressed Ink in Tea Dye.
The papers are Fancy Pants "It's the Little Things" 6X6 paper pad and coordinating solid cardstock. I followed the sketch from Graphicat Sketches, but twisted it just a little.
The ribbon, bling, flowers, and sprigs are from my stash. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps Retro Bottle Cap stamp set and coordinating die cut. I *love* these sets. Truly makes creating sentiments so easy.
Here's a close up of the senti ment. Around the circle it says "sending happy thoughts your way". A little hard to read on the kraft cardstock.
