Time for another weekly sketch challenge from My Favorite Things!
I've used the new PI: Little Gardener, coloured her with Copics and pastels and paper-pieced her boots. I CANNOT resist piecing boots!! Just can't! They are so darned cute and little patterns from 6x6 pads are so perfect for it :)
In retrospect, I probably should have coloured her overalls something other than green, so that the plant stood out more, but by the time I realized that, I was too far in ;)
I did add some glaze pen to the leaves (as well as the buttons, hair pretty and her eyes) to help it stand out more, and it does make it better IRL, trust me!
Here's a better pic where you can see the shine! The sentiment was stamped onto one of the Sentiment Strips die-namics. The bottom scallop is one of the new Open Scallop Trio die-namics.
I added a Banana Split button, tied with Hemp.
Here is the inside. I stamped the PI again in Orange Fizz ink, and added another sentiment in Black Licorice.

Oh yeah, I wanted to show you the new personalized stamp that I ordered through Etsy (StampOutOnline). I've always wanted a nice custom stamp that I could use on the back of my cards, with my name and website! I saw this little company featured on one of the blogs I subscribe to on my google reader, and decided to check them out, as she was very happy with hers! I ordered one (you can choose one of their designs or combine a few to create what you like- cost is more to do that). I loved the fonts and had a hard time choosing! I'm really happy with the one that I decided on! I love the font, and the boldness of it, and of course I love anything stars! It stamps great (that MFT premium dye ink is perfect!) and comes pre-mounted on an acrylic block AND most importantly, it's a clear stamp! It's pretty obvious when you are stamping one thing on a card, especially near the bottom, if it's crooked!! Shipping was FAST! Even to Canada!! Check her out if this is something you've been interested in!!
Here are the MFT supplies that I've used today:
