Aw Shucks…


Aw shucks…. you shouldn’t have! 

 I’m very well aware that I’ve used cherry themed images the last 3 weeks for the weekend sketch challenge. I’m also very sure that it wasn’t intentional. There are just so many cute cherry themed things out there right now. 😉 Meet Henrietta from Stamping Bella! Just makes me smile when I see her standing there, all demure and coy.


She is stamped on ivory cardstock with Memento inks – Rich Cocoa and LadyBug. I used the dew drop size so that I could color right onto the stamp and get her dress and body in two different colors. You could do the same thing with brushtip markers. I colored the cherries with Copic Markers (R27 and YG25) and then shaded with W1. The cherries have a little glaze added to them, and the white pleats of her dress shimmer.

 Hope you enjoy the sketch this weekend. You can see other fabulous samples (as always) from Beate, Cambria, Charmaine, Laurie, Mary Jo and Sharon.
