SIP 9 Sketch Challenge Grateful Ballerina

 Welcome to another fabulous week of Stamp, Ink, Paper!!! It was so nice to see many entries this last week!! You all are so talented!!! Thank you all so much for joining us!! Justin has an amazing sketch this week and I can't wait to share my card. 

Well the pool officially closed this weekend. Bummer, because we still have over two weeks of summer break... But who's counting?? Kids received backpacks and shoes courtesy of Papa and Meema... They were so excited!!

I got my pre order of goodies from the new Holiday Catalog!! I can't wait for you all to see it!!

I started this card with a soft base of Smoky Slate card stock. I then used a color that I haven't don't use often Rose Red. I had a piece of Pink Pirouette already embossed with the Large Polka Dot embossing folder. I took a strip of the sequins in Silver and Blushing Bride on the to resemble the stripes on the left in the sketch. My Ballerina snow globe was made using the Sparkly Seasons Bundle!! I stamped the ballerina with our new Basic Black archival ink and then colored her using Pink Pirouette and Rose Red Stampin' Write markers. This set is photopolymer so it made stamping the snow globe sparkles really easy! I stamped these with Versamark and heat embossed them using the Iridescent Ice embossing powder! To add some foof I had some pink tulle to add to the skirt. The sentiment is also from this bundle! I used the Iridescent Ice embossing powder on Smoky Slate before running it through my Big Shot to get my glittery sentiment! What's a ballerina without a bow?!

Thank You all for stopping!! Have fun creating!!!
