Sick Sprinkle

Poor little Sprinkle... sick, sick, sick. My husband who has been sick for the past three days with a terrible cold came in my craft room (spreading his germs around) and said... "I must be the inspiration for that card" his credit he said that before I added the jewels on the collar. Actually, the inspiration was from the TCP TUESDAY #43 - SKETCH CHALLENGE hosted by Leigh O'Brien... please follow the challenge link above and go see her awesome sample card; she made a fabulous card using Gamsol and Colored Pencils on Kraft paper! The paper I used on my card is from Stampin Up's new Parisian Breeze Specialty Collection. I airbrushed and added my little doodles while my paper was still in the Nestie oval die with a little blue Copic. The bedspread is paper pieced and everything else I colored with Copics. And of course, Sprinkle always wants a little sparkle -- so I finished it off with some teeeensy crystals for her collar and a little bow below. Finished card size is an A2.
