Yummy juicy cherries for Polka Doodle!
This is my entry for the Polka Doodle card sketch challenge. (I wanted to post the sketch here, but I'm a little challenged myself!) But I have to brag about my cherries--don't they look like they are bursting with juicy goodness? I colored the stamp with 2 shades of red and blended it with a prisma wax blending pencil. I have never used these before but I really like them! Then I dabbed on a little red stickles (ya know I include stickles every chance I get!), then I slathered on a good helping of Liquid Glass (by Close To My Heart). The circles and scallops were cut out with nestabilities. I stamped little cherries on the background paper and heat embossed with white. And it may not look it, but I used my cricut on this. My weird shaped sentiment stamp is on the caterpillar from Walk In My Garden. He may be hard to recognize without head and legs. I doodled little black dots on the sentiment to match the ones that were on my mini cherry stamp. So do you think this is challenge-worthy? It's going to my chemo buddy. Hope she likes it. Thanks for taking a peek!
