Today's card was done using sketch 157 from Splitcoast. I wanted to make a card with Knitabella for my mom - she's a knitter. I stamped her the other day when I was stamping a bunch of Bellas on watercolor paper using my Palette Noir ink.
I colored her in with an aquapainter and my watercolor wonder crayons. They are so easy to use, and I love having all the colors right in front of me! I chose colors using the Porcelain Prints paper - Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery and a tiny bit of So Saffron for the yarn. Maybe she's knitting a baby blanket (and no...that is not a hint...I am not expecting mom!)
For the sentiment, I didn't have a stamp here that I liked, so I hand wrote the sentiment with a black gel pen. I don't have the best handwriting, but it works well enough. I clipped the corners with the SU! tag corner punch, sponged all the layers with Not Quite Navy ink, and assembled. I couldn't figure out where to add any ribbon...so I didn't! She's pretty simple, but I still like her!
