WSC #36 - Spa Day

It's time for another awesome sketch from the MFT team! Today I'm using one of the just released Pure Innocence sets - Spa Day.

I wanted to go soft and pretty with this one so tried to keep my copic colouring light. Colouring is still something I want to improve on, I was pretty happy with how this cutie came out. After colouring her up, I masked the image and overstamped the layer with the script stamp from First Class Friend - I love this look!

I also tried my hand at stitching around the oval. Want to know a secret? Those rolled roses don't just look pretty, they also hide the spots that my stitching went a little wild! Fake it till you make it baby! I use my full size sewing machine for sewing on my cards so it can be a little powerful at times, but I'm starting to get the hang of it.

Because I had the mask already cut, I used it on the inside of the card too, adding a little more script under my sentiment.
