CPS Sketch # 206

I really liked this week's sketch from CPS, and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. I had an SU party on Feb 15 and was able to get lots of new goodies, including many things from the Sew Suite line from the Occasions mini.
This cute little girl is actually a rub-on. I applied it to watercolor paper and watercolored. Unfortunately, some of the color ran outside the lines, so I wound up cutting her out and adhering her to another rectangle of WC paper. I don't think it looks too bad. I also wanted to have a lacy trim around the circle. I tried pinch-pleating my border-punched strip, but I'm lousy at it, so I ran it through my crimper instead. I think it looks much better. I inked the edges. Pink circle is stamped with Pattern Pieces. The sent. is from a retired SU set. Punches, DP, and brad are all SU. CS is Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip.
