Fancy Photo

Saturated Canary Fancy!
Here's the inside, too

Update: I realized that my pictures were horrible, so here's a better one (hopefully). You miss the lace along the bottom, but the image of her is much better.

Well, this week was a bit of a doozy, so my crafting was kept to a minimum. I did get to play with the fantastic Fancy from Saturated Canary. I've wanted to craft with her for awhile but wasn't sure what to do. The color scheme is from the Saturated Canary photo inspiration and the sketch is from Feeling Sketchy.

This week's sketch. 

With her dress, I was going for more of a champagne color, but it ended up a bit pink. Her bodice top and ribbon are more along the lines of what I'd had in mind. The sticker on the side is ki memories, but I added some of the pearls that coordinated with the ones in her hair. They're Recollections; the blue ones on the lacy ribbon are Martha Stewart pearls. Those purple orchids are from a ... I don't know what they're called ... it's one of those fake flower stem things. I just cut the flowers and "buds" off and stuck them on there with some glue dots. The background paper is my current fave - that Twitterpated paper and the small blue flowers are from an Elysee ribbon that I cut up. For the inside, I found some pink paper that I'd had for awhile and lightly copied the sketch by putting the Twitterpated paper along the bottom.

Many thanks to the super sweet gals at Feeling Sketchy. My whole goal for blogging is to use my time by doing something constructive - get better at crafting. Gumdar made top four; getting online after a tough week and seeing that really made my day. Thanks!
