I stamped the bear first and colored her in with poppy and sahara sand markers. Next I stamped the bear again on a piece of designer series paper and cut out the skirt part of the dress. Then I stamped the image again on a post it note and covered the first image so that I could sponge the clouds in the sky. (Since my post it note template was still sticky and in good shape I stuck it back in the box with the stamps to use again!) I actually used a leftover frame from the scallop oval frame die, since my main oval was the middle part of the frame, to use as my template for the clouds. I sponged in some always artichoke grass and drew a few grass lines with the same marker. The ribbon was whisper white but I colored it with my Poppy Parade marker and because I was in a hurry and couldn't wait too long for it to dry I wiped it with a baby wipe and a paper towel. It did soften/lighten up the color some but I think it still works great.
I hope that you feel inspired by the sketch and can play along with us at the Diva Coffee Break Designs Blog and share your creations with us. Thanks!
