Friends of Unity~ March 2021


Hey there!! 
Welcome to Robyn's Nest!!!

Ok onto this hop!!
We have a sketch challenge this month!! 
Here's how I was inspired.....

I stamped out the image a few weeks ago from the January KOM from 2020
 and decided to use her today for this sketch...
I colored her with a few Copic Markers 
BG 10-11-13
Y-000 for her eyes and glasses
E 21-37-18 for her hair in strokes, then I went over the entire thing with the Y00
I zoomed in a little..I used a white gel pen to highlight the top


        I got out my gold thread from Stampin' Up and tied a bow around her finger where the stamped line is (it looks cute in person)
From the kit In God's Sight, I chose the line of hearts.
 I stamped them on vellum and heat embossed them with gold.
 I fussy cut them out, then I wanted them to hang loosely.
 So I got to thinking, I have this punch that pokes 2 holes. I can thread more of that gold thread through it 
I like how it turned out. I added some gold shimmer hearts here and there.
I decided that she was thinking about her man with her head in the you like that?? 
I added a gold cloud in back to tie them together.. 
I chose to use this shiny gold paper because of the tiny gold dots in this amazing paper from Lawn Fawn.
For my next card, I chose this sweet little cup. 
I just love the heart steam!! 
A tiny bit of coloring went into this card. 
If you have any questions, please ask.
 I don't want to get too wordy. 😉 
I hope you like my play on this months cue/sketch
