Sweet Sunday Favourite

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge but we're doing things a little differently this week. Karen has challenged us to go back through the sketches and choose our favourite, then create a new project with that sketch. Here's a link to all the sketches on Karen's blog...you have to scroll a little to find them, but they're all there.

I love to work with circles so I went looking for a sketch with a circle as the main panel, and I found SSSC69. I love the simplicity of this layout with those three strips of paper. As soon as I saw it I asked myself why I don't do layouts like this more often. So I knew it was "the one" for me.  :)

I pulled out my Hangin' Out set from Taylored Expressions. I need a baby girl card and I pictured the clothes line going across the circle. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and onto some MME Quite Contrary papers. I wanted a white border around each of the images so I  cut out the patterned pieces right along the black outline, but I left some white space when I cut out the white pieces. The teddy is coloured with copics and if you look closely you can see that I added some faint gingham strips to his tummy with my colourless blender. A little sewing and some Crystal Twinkles finished off the details perfectly! I really really love how this turned out, and the kraft paper matching teddy so well was complete coincidence. I hadn't thought about using kraft until after teddy was coloured and I was looking for another layer colour. Love it when things come together like that!

I hope you'll play along with this week's challenge and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now let's go see what sketches the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers chose to work with!
