Cardabilities DT Reveal SKetch #26

Hello crafty friends,
Say Adios February... and Hola new Cardabilities sketch! Woo Hoo!
Here's sketch #26 by the sketch master Karan Gerber:
 Here's my card:
Here's a new Mini-Me (Tilda) I had to ink up --- oh, how I luuuv the Maggies! This is Congratulations Tilda. She's sooo cute, don't ya think?

There's loads of paper piecing on this card (Her dress, party hat, & gift). I added a dash of Copics to the DP so it would blend together & add a bit if depth. Her shoes got a coat of Glossy Accents to give them that patent leather look. Her dress ruffles got a bit of Stickles for shimmer. The balloons are a MS punch. I used my Copics to color the foam Thickers to match my paper.

I get asked if the no mouth thing on the Magnolia stamps bother me, well umm, let me see...
                                                           that would be no  :) Hee! Hee!

  2. You did an awesome job with this sketch. I like how you have the word You overlapping the circles and your center panel. Very cute

  3. Another cutie. I love those little girls, too. But I always get close to "finish" their faces. *lol*

    Have a great week!


  4. Such a great take on that sketch. You always make these cardabilities sketches look so effortless! Tilda looks perfect in her pieced outfit. Love the gloss on the patent shoes, too!
