Bundle of Mischief.
This card meets several challenges. The challenge 113 at Gingersnap Creations is Babes and Tots. I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 204 for the layout. And, the challenge at Creative Belli is gingham. There's lots to talk about so I guess I'll start with the focal image. This little cutie is colored with watercolor pencils. I used Spellbinders eyelet circles die to frame her. Then for fun I tried the Spirelli technique from the current TJ newsletter, only I varied it by working within the eyelets instead of around the outside edge..
The background is dry embossed to represent gingham. I used white pigment ink on the squares and embossed them with Ranger Antiquities Weathered White embossing powder. The ribbon is also gingham. Creative Belli encourages the use of older or forgotten embellishments. Both the embossing powder (which I had to have, but never used) and the ribbon are items from my past.
The yellow panel is stamped using a commemorative stamp from Stampland which is designed by the artist Scott Helms. (Another had to have item which has been used maybe once. It's a cool stamp though.)
The photo corner (lost for years and recently found) and the sentiment (See-D stamp) finish off the look.
