Hello, Sunshine {SSSC273}

Good morning and happy Sunday! I'm back with a new Sweet Sunday Sketch and I even broke out my Copic Markers for this one.

First, take a peek at this week's sketch:

And here is my take on it:

Please excuse my phone photo here - my computer, with all my photo editing software and watermarks is in the shop for the time being, and so this will have to do. It bugs me. A. Lot.

Anyway - I loved coloring this sweet Birdie Brown image from Sunflower Sweetheart. She just oozes summertime. I flipped the sketch so that the image was facing towards all the fun little elements. I stamped her in Black Licorice Hybrid ink and then colored her with Copics (haven't used them in a LONG time). I tried to make her hat look like with was woven. Did it work? Meh. Sort of. Ha!

I stamped the sentiment on one of the Conversation Bubbles from W Plus 9, which I shortened up just a bit to fit the sentiment a little better.

Please hop on over to the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge blog for a peek at all the cards the design team made this week - you can also link up your creation there as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. Could she be any cuter?! Me thinks not. Love how you colored her! What colors Copics did you use for her hat? I'm always on the lookout for those tones. I would have never guessed you used your phone girl. Great picture!
