Inky Impressions DT Call

This card is serving multiple purposes for me.  I have a friend at church who is having a difficult pregnancy.  I wanted to send her a card with my prayers.  She has been on bed rest for over a month.  I talked to her today and she is feeling better.  Please send your thoughts and prayers to Lisa.

I am entering this card as a DT try out for Inky Impressions.  This image is from Inky Impressions too.  Her name is Lili.  I got her at a craft fair I went to with my family and friends.  I was fortunate enough to meet the owners and some of the DT.  I was thrilled when I saw they were having a DT call.  I just love these images. They are so cute and sweet.  Wish me luck!

This sketch comes from Sketches by Carly.  I love using sketches.  It gives me a chance to try new things (also takes some of the brain work away for me and I can concentrate on coloring).  Here is the sketch I used:

To color Lili I used Whisper Strokes and Stampin' Up markers with some added Stickles from Ranger.  I used Glossy Accents on her bracelet to pop it up a bit.  The papers are from DCWV, The Paper Co. and my Stash 'O Scraps.  I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink to add a bit of green to one of the papers.  The stitching is generic thread. Finally I used an Offray ribbon.  

These are the challenges I have entered into:

Inky Impressions - DT call - Lots of layers and a bit of stitching
Simon Says - Anything goes

I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Thanks for stopping by!

Don't ya just love sketch challenges and the ability to just pick out your papers and coloring your image. I know I do too. Definitely a reason I wanted to be on the DT at SBC. Thank you so much for joining us there this week, and prayers sent Heavenward for your dear friend. Hugs, Kelly :)
