MMSC59 Steal a Kiss

What is happening with time these days - where has the last week gone!?!?  Not that I am complaining as it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - and we all LOVE that don't we!!

This week I am using an image from our Weekly Bonus Sponsor Lacey from  Stamp'n Create - I am using the image 'Steal a Kiss'  isn't it adorable.  I love the cheekiness of this scene!

 I have coloured the image with SU Chalks, using a Blender Pen,  The oval is embossed using the hearts embossing folder and then cut with a Nestibilitie, it is layers onto a chocolate brown oval.  I have used Layers of Color images from the Merci Bouquet clear art stamps - they worked so well with this sketch.

The background DP is distressed around the edges with scissors and is layered onto embossed CS - I have tried to keep the circles theme happening in the background.  The gorgeous pearl swirl is part of a whole one sent to me by a former MMSC Designer, Jeni - thanks Jeni - I love these!!
