Chapter 14: Gettin’ Sketchy in the Golden Afternoon…

“Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips,
and the sun is like a toy balloon.
There are get up in the morning glories,
in the golden afternoon.
There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside,
strings of violets are all in tune,
Tiger lilies love the dandy lions,
in the golden afternoon,
the golden afternoon.
There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead…Ā “

Hey everyone! It’s Oh, Alice! time again!

Someone has made this horrifically detailed sketch for us this week… oh wait. That was me. Yeah… I don’t know why I do this to myself, lol. Repeat after me… less is more, less is more, less is… Hehe. It might be just me but I had a hard time with this sketch this week because I felt the need to include every part of the sketch since you know… I made the dang thing. Alright, moving on… This is the sketch:


For my card I started with this gorgeous Elaine Cox image from Sweet Pea Stamps and colored it with Copics to match (sorta) the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry designer paper. I cut Alice out with an oval Nestie after coloring her all the way to the edge of the stamp. This did trim away a fair bit of the stamp but I kinda like the color going all the way to the edge of the oval.

Then I cut out the background panel with a Nesties Label 12 and layered that with more Nook and Pantry paper to finish the layout. I added three Prima flowers with brown brad centers and finished the corners with Kaiser Pearls in two sizes.

Oh! Really quick, I wanted to say that I’m so sorry I’ve been a horrible commenter these last few days. Work has me swamped with wrapping up the end of the school year and I’ve been fighting this nasty cold that has settled in my lungs. šŸ™ I’ll be back to my normal self after next week when school is out! Now some other fun news…

Our sketch comes w/ just a small twist this week….
