It's also time for a new challenge at Creatalicious and this month we have a wonderful sketch for you to work with! So, I chose to use the sketch for this La La land blog hop card, and combine my two DT cards! LOVE when I am able to do that!!!
I got the opportunity to use Tennis Marci, isnt she just a doll. Now, I am NOT a tennis player, but I just thought she was so stinkin cute, I had to use her for my card. I paired her up with these amazing papers from K&Company, Sweet Nectar. I love the springy colors, they went great with this image.
The sketch at Creatalicious highlights these papers perfectly. I changed the sketch as bit, as the image just did not look right cut into a circle shape, so I chose to cut her in a rectangle to showcase more of the design paper. I added some Doohickey Tilda's Lace border to the image panel to make it stand out a bit and for added interest.
I colored Marci with copics.
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30
Hair - YR20, E31, E35
Shirt and socks- B02, B00, B0000
Skirt and hair bow - R89, R87, R85, R81, RV10
Shoe s- E42, E40
Racket - W5, W3, W1
Tennis Ball - YG03, Y11

I added a light blue silk ribbon and offset the bow a bit to make sure not to cover the image at all. The sentiment was stamped from The Greeting Farm Anya Says stamp set, and I thought it matched perfect with this image. I stamped it on a Doohickey Vintage Tag and tied it at the top with some blue silk ribbon. I also added Wild Orchid Crafts flowers. I used light blue 25mm roses, two-toned pink cherry blossoms, and pink 15mm roses. I punched the butterfly out using my Martha Stewart Monarch punch.
I hope like my card using Tennis Marci, and thank you for stopping by today. Make sure you leave a comment for your chance to win.
