I blew the dust off the 'ol brayer to use for the background. As you can see from the dark line at the top, I could use a little practice. *snort* I'm really not sure what happened, but I'm going to say dusk is turning to night and well, it is what it is! Ha! Anyway, after the sky was inked, I decided to use Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #200 for the layout. It's a loose interpretation of the sketch, but if you look closely, all of the elements are there...I did scoot the banner to the right hand side to make room for the Uptown Girl. The image, Opal the Optimist was stamped with Tuxedo Black, colored with Copic markers, fussy cut then popped up on foam. My Favorite Things die cut elements complete the card. I'm also entering this into Little Red Wagon's #218 New Beginnings challenge. I'm celebrating a new beginning on the Stamping Bella DT and also used a new Uptown Girl stamp. Love her!
