Butterflies and a Pierrot Doll

Yeah, another Saturday and another Unscripted sketch. I love getting to share mine with you. Here is the sketch (make sure you play along this week) and make sure you also check out what the rest of the team did with the same sketch.

When I looked at this weeks sketch, I wanted to think "outside the box" a bit on how to create my card. So, instead of using ribbon or string to "tie" the two accent pieces together, I created little rows of punched out circles and ran a line of machine sewing through each of them.
 Notice that cool embossed design? That is my brand new texture plate from PaperTrey, Inc. And the butterflies are my brand new stamps from My Stamp Box. I stamped them with white ink and embossed them with white embossing powder on white cardstock. Next I sprayed them with some Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. That bit of colors created some a soft look.
And, I just couldn't wait to share this cutie with you. This is a Pierrot Doll and it is from a brand new stamp set by Pink Persimmon and it isn't even released yet, so this is little sneak peek. The set is called Holiday Favors and it contains several cute images.
I would have called this little guy a clown but I guess if you want to get technical then it is a Pierrot Doll. Any which way it is so cute. All of the dots on his little costume are colored with a Copic marker and then accented with Aleene's Paper Glaze. It is also added to the shoes, cheeks and pompom on the hat. The Paper Glaze adds a fun, extra shine and dimension to the image. The background is super simple, it is just little square stamp pads tapped directly onto the cardstock. LOVE the color combo.
The banners are from a set by Pink Persimmon. The banners are sets of words so stamping them and using them is so easy. Happy is all one stamp, Birthday is another stamp. I did cut each one out after stamping it and that really just takes a minute.
And this little ruffle edge is in the same set. I just stamped it repeatedly to go across my card. The card design fits with the Clear and Simple blog anniversary sketch.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
