Having fun with Sparkle Creations


This is my entry for Sparkle Creations challenge #13. I just had to have Suitcase Ruby, and so I pooled an order in with my good friend Sheena, and she has been waiting for over 2 weeks to be inked up. I had time at work to play with her today, and this is what I came up with.

I paper pieced the boots, suitcase, flower, belt, earing and purse with Kraft cardstock, and then colored her in with my Copics. I still have a lot of practice to do with hair, but nevertheless I think the end product is just fine. I used a stamp that I got on a recent parcel and put it behind Ruby. I then took out my silver airplane bead and mounted it on a stick pin. These items have been sitting patiently in my stash.

I wish I had someone to give it to. Perhaps someone will leave for a vacation or adventure soon, and then I can send Ruby their way.

Have a wonderful weekend, we are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend, and we are cooking our very first turkey. Any tips would be appreciated, this is an adventure in our home for sure.
