Pippi Longsocks with Lavender and Lace


Today I have a card to share with you featuring Pippi Longsocks from Sugar Nellie. I must say that I have really enjoyed making this card. Hope you like it.

I started with the current challenge sketch from Sketch Saturday . I stamped Pippi Longstocks with Memento and coloured her with promarkers. I added some Sakura Clear Star to her wings to give her a bit of sparkle. I edged the image with some Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut & Dry foam. I mounted Pippi onto a purple frame made from a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles die.

The papers used for the backing are all from the Polka Doodles CD Sundae of Seasons. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley. The card blank is 8" x 8" from Craftwork Cards.

The backing for the sentiment was created from some lace. The lace was actually cream but I wanted lavender so I dyed it using the Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I added a couple of Creative Expressions Pins and the card was finished.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
