AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch Challenge 034

It is time for the February AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch Challenge
This was a fun sketch.

I had fun using Lil Michelle With Teddy. I stamped her twice, colored her and cut her out whole for the bottom layer and then left off her legs and her left arm for the top layer. I ahered the layers directly on top of each other (no pop up dots) except I did not glue her skirt on the top layer. Instead I folded it upward for dimension. I did cut and free the skirt from her hand. Then I put pop up dots under her on the card.

The whole card front is adhered to the card base with dimensional foam adhesive. I did this to allow room for the Natural Cotton Twine I used to thread my buttons with.

For the sentiment I masked the sentiment so I could stamp each word separately along the top of the circle. I used masking tape.

I used my Mixed Sprinkles Girls for the dots on the sketch on the bottom. But felt something was missing around my sentiment. So I used some more on the circle. This seemed to brighten it up and give it balance too.

Now You can go to the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog and see the rest of the talented Design Team's creations using this sketch. Hope you join us this month. You'll want the prize.
