Giving Shelter

Rox has provided another fabulous sketch on SCS today. Click HERE to see the challenge. I just received this sweet Giving Shelter image (Rachelle Ann Miller - Stampavie) the other day, and thought it would fit great with this sketch. The paper is Girl Friday (Cosmo Cricket), with the matting being Neenah Natural White and Kraft (Prismatic). The image is colored with copics and has a touch of sparkle that I added with my Quickie Glue Pen, and Ultrafine Transparent Glitter (Judikins). The shape was created by using the new Octagon Nestabilities (Spellbinders). I also papertoled the flower with 5 layers. I love the depth papertoling gives.

I used Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink) to stamp the sentiment that I created with my Harmony Rectangular Stamper and the 50 pt Times New Roman lowercase font. Before ya say anythin', I realize I forgot the apostrophe between the *i* and *m*. It's there now, I just didn't feel like photographing and editing again. Especially since I had to charge my camera battery. Of course, I didn't figure that out until I had taken just one photo. (patience is not one of my virtues)

The braided twine Ribbon, and Rose Sheer Ribbon are May arts. I hand sewed the zigzag portions with twine, and ink distressed all the edges with Brushed Corduroy (Ranger Distress Ink). And finally, the Soft Pink Rhinestones are Kaisercraft.

Thanks so much for visiting today.
Hope your week is going well.
Happy stamping!!

This is adorable! Had no idea what "papertoling" was til I looked at your close up. That sure is cool. Love the background and the ribbon and those octagon nesties are growing on me.
