Sitting Pretty!

Good afternoon!
How are you all? I've been a little tired this week for some reason but I think I'm getting better now...

Ok so over at Crafting For All Seasons we have a new challenge and this fortnight it's

STITCHING (faux or real)

Our fabby sponsors this week are

Meljen's Designs :: Digital Stamps by Melissa Jenkins

The Stamping Boutique

Now I don't have a sewing machine 'sew' mine is definitely faux!

I've called this post 'Sitting Pretty' and can't you just see why??She is adorable and is from The Greetings Farm and I have coloured her with Promarkers and Polychromo pencils and Sansodor to give some depth to her hair and dress. The papers are all Nitwit freebies from an old issue of Simply Homemade. I actually chose the papers and basically put the card together before colouring her which I found works really well! The stitching was 'drawn' using Old Olive and Regal Rose Stampin' Up! markers.

This Week's Sketch (#279)

Thanks for looking and look forward to seeing your entries! :)
