You are The Pick of The Patch!!

Hi EveryOne Fall is almost here...my FAVORITE time of year. the weather is perfect,the leaves change color,squirrels are scurring about carrying chestnuts in their mouths preparing for their long journey of winter.However yesterday i went for a walk with my husband and we stepped out and it was so warm that he said weren't we supposed to have this weather when the kids were home in August....yeah now they are in school and i cannot take them to the beach...perhaps the weekend.This cutie is CCD and should be arriving soon. I wanted a deeper red for the wagon and if i added more color to her she would have been darker.i stamped were with black staz-on ink....pulled out prismas and OMS and blending stumps and colored her up.For this technique you also need a sanding block to sharpen and get access color off the blending stump before changing over to another color.You can get them anywhere and stampin up sells them in twos for under $5.So you can find your local demonstrator for them.


I used my scrap paper and it feels empty yet simple so i left her the way she was. Inside it says "You are the Pick of the Patch" also arriving from CCD.I just happened to borrow this from a friend....thanks friend.I added glossy accents to the wagon,wheels, mary-jane shoes,and head band.And i took my gel white pen and added some accent on the apron and sleeves.For embellishments i added some jewels and prima flowers and red shiny brads.And i edge distressed the corners which is $1.60 at The Townscrapper (ME).
Hope you Have A GREAT LONG WEEKEND!!
