Let's Scrap Blog Hop - Sketch 6-17-09, LEAP48

{Host: Moira Coward}

Moira has given us Let's Scrap blog hoppers a great sketch (see below) to work with, I just had to give it a go and this cute little vintage girl (digi stamp) came straight to mind.  Had it printed with my Canon Inkjet and used my H2's to colour them.  I have downloaded the image a while ago from the net, but can't remember from where.  The sentiment is two digi stamps I have downloaded from here.   All the patterned paper are from various Paper Houses i.e. Basic Grey, Art from the Heart, etc.

If you are interested in taking part in this Blog Hop,  Mindi Brown has all the details for this blog hop on her own blog.  So if you are keen on making lots of cards with the help of super sketches by the 50 Blog Hop hosts, you have to hop on over to her blog.


The vintage girl was printed three times and each coloured slightly different.  Once again I used one of my favourite card techniques i.e. a Centre Step Card.  Here's the tutorial for it.  Once again a ditched my lazy hat and threaded the mini buttons with black raffia.  Hope you like my take on Moira's sketch.
