Sentimental Sundays - ribbon or lace

What a lovely challenge this week at Sentimental Sundays! I just love dimension and texture ribbon or lace give to our projects.

I've been itching to use that hilarious granny wolf from Meljens Designs for a while. She is available at Whimsy Stamps. The sentiment is from a matching digital sentiment set by Raindrop Echo.

I used a wonderful elegant sketch from Mojo Mondays and Copic Markers for colouring. I covered her glasses and cane with glossy accents.

Copic Markers:
Fur/skin:W9/7/5/3/1/00, R22/01
Dress, bonnet: R29/27/24/22/21/20
Shawl: YG99/97/95/93/91, YR14/12/23, Y00
Cane: E37/35/97, C8/7/5/3

IMAGE:  Whimsy Stamps
Coloring Medium: Copic Markers
Paper: Pebbles, bazzill card stock, Neenah card for image
Accessories: ribbon, Glossy Accents  flat back crystals
Tools: ATG adhesive gun,  paper piercer, glue gel, Purple Cow guillotine, Martha Stewart deep edge Punch, Martha Stewart scoring board

I am going to be away next week, I have some posts scheduled but I won't be able to do any blog hopping or leave comments. So if I won't be around it's not because I've stopped caring. It's because I'm splashing in the pool with kids or expanding my substantial a--e further with sumptuous meals I won't have to cook.

I'll be snooping around your blogs feasting my eyes on your fab creations and leaving loadsa love again once I get back. And I have a plans for a little candy once things settle a bit. :) Because I SO appreciate all your support and the most wonderful comments you leave, sometimes I feel utterly undeserving!!
