LOTV challenge 102- a sketch.

Morning peeps!!

Well,we were up early at the house of daubney today thanks to someone's car alarm going off.....repeatedly so I gave up trying to go back to sleep and decided to get busy doing some making instead.

When I turned on my google reader the new LOTV challenge was up and it was a yummy sketch by Donalda so that was what I decided to work on first!! Pop over there to see the sketch and their DT's awesome cards, I love them all!! I am also entering this cutie in the I love promarkers challenge blogs Anything Goes challenge. I used blush, soft peach, buttercup, sandstone,caramel, dusky pink, pear green, olive green and ivory to shadow. And the Sweet Stampin challenge blogs Things with Wings challenge.

I decided my new little pom pom fairy was going to get her first inking for this one!! I bought her at the stamp magic show, (along with 11 other  LOTV friends to keep her company...!!!!) and I love how this card turned out. The sketch is so nice to work with so I can see a few more popping out yet!!!!

I stamped her with memento rich cocoa onto a fabric doily and then coloured her with promarkers. They bled a little on the material but I have decided they added to the sketchy look of the cute little fairy. You can just about pick out the sparkle on her pom poms and wings but its still a little overcast here so taking a piccy is tricky!!!!

So don't forget to pop over to the LOTV challenge blog and look at the sketch, I am not putting a piccy on here or you wouldn't go for a visit now would you!!!!!! :)

Off to work/school for me and Little Mo, who has lost another tooth this morning!!! oh my goodness, he has such a huuuuge gap now with all 4 front teeth gone, I must admit he looks kinda cute though and the lisp he has gained is so sweet!!!!!

Thank you for popping in on me, huge hugs Lou xxxx
