It's time for a fun new release from Sami Stamps and this time around it's Fancy Hats!!
Holding Flower in my Hat). My first thought when I saw her was to do a scene with her standing in an open field full of purple flowers.
But that failed...both parts (the background scene and the girl) turned out great, but together they just didn't mesh right...so I had to start over. That wasn't easy and I sat around stumped for quite some time. After looking at sketches and inspiration for the day, I finally settled on something that would hopefully work. I didn't want her to get lost in a sea of large flowers and leaves, but needed to add something that wasn't just buttons or gems.
I followed the sketch at Viva La Verve, and used a flower stamp from Lawn Fawn that matched pretty well to what she was holding. And they didn't drown her out too much. Colored her in with my ShinHan markers, cut her out with the Stitched Journaling die from Lawn Fawn and put everything together. The sentiment was hard to decide on since I wasn't entirely sure where I wanted to put it. But after playing with a few options, I used the pennant die from the same Lawn Fawn set and stuck it under my bow.
Be sure to stop by Sami Stamps to see the rest of this super cute release, and don't forget to join in our challenge!!
