Thinking of Robyn
Friends have their youngest (about 7) in hospital with an undiagnosed and serious condition. I wanted to make them all smile, if even for a minute, and so did a 'portrait' of their family with the SU! 'All in the Family' and 'Simple sketches' stamps. I used SU! cs - Whisper White, Almost Amethyst, Lavendar Lace, Pixie Pink, and ran a felt pen round the edge of the main image. I punched the flowers with a CM punch and decorated them (and the image) with silver gel pen. I made tags with a ribbon I received from a friend so am not sure of its origin. I used SU! Stampin' Pastels with a blender pen to colour the main images and then chalked everyone's cheeks. I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig a LOT with this card - for every placement of each little person - am not sure how I managed to give the littlest one such a long neck, but she is special.
Oh - and this card is also for Fiona's sketch challenge to use an SU! stamp set beginning with 'A' this fortnight. Oh - Fiona says to come and join the Alphabet Challenge!
