C4E-28 & 3-2-1

I combined 2 of Michele's challenges together on this card! First off it is this weeks Crafts 4 Eternity Sketch (#28) and second it fits the bill for the 3-2-1 April Challenge. (3 colours, 2 brads & 1 oval shape) I added pop dots in there to get some depth and you can see the cuttlebugging really well in this side picture.

Yes I must admit I jumped on the Gorjuss girls bandwagon, though only a little. I do have a couple pieces of her art also and I collect signature tags done with her work too.

This is actually an image of a girl sitting on a "line" with a bird next to her, I trimmed it real close and eliminated the bird on this card though :) I wanted her to appear to be sitting in the oval.
The background layer and the oval are run through the cuttlebug with the paisley A2 folder while the pink piece is run through with the Swiss Dots and then the Burnt Umber Palette Ink Pad swiped across it. I used that same ink pad to edge the papers too.

I found the metal embellishment in my stash and added it to the piece or Ric Rac from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I colored with my Copics, of course using E50, E51, E21, E00, YR00, RV23, RV21 and G21.

Hope you enjoy and take some time to look what the other girls have done over at Crafts 4 Eternity and give the sketch a try yourself - it is a fun one!
