Hello.  Welcome.  Do you like sketches?  I have been really inspired by the lovely sketches over at Scrappelyst.  I tried a card sketch on an ATC and now I'm using a LO sketch on a card.  All things are possible.  

I have taken inspiration from MFP's photo challenge this week and this sketch from Scrappelyst

I have rotated the sketch 90°.  I stamped MFP Paper Doll Paige and drew the diagonal lines with a pen.  The card I choose has some texture so the stamping is a bit patchy in places.  

I stamped some circle elements using Rubber Dance Round in Circles stamps and stars from the Textured Flowers set in orange distress ink.  Then I filled them in with an orange sharpie.  I didn't like that so I outlined the circles with a black sharpie and stamped some more with black archival.  I coloured the doll with distress inks and also did a distress ink wash to the background.  I paper pieced her sports shoes and tennis dress.  I'm quite liking this fun LO.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz

  1. Seriously! This card is sheer perfection! I l-o-v-e everything you've got going on in that artful corner. The splash of orange and the repetition of circle shapes are so artful! Awesome work (and thanks for playing along at STAMPlorations!)

  2. Love the way you incorporated the paper doll stamped image into your card. Great background. Thank you for sharing with us at MFP Stamps Challenge.

  3. OOH, I love this card. The background is awesome with the girlie in front!

  4. Awesome, this tennis player looks great! What a way to meet this challenge.

  5. I think it's so cool that you've used the LO sketch for a card. And a very nice card it is! Love the bright orange! Thank you for joining us at Scrappelyst :)
