MMSC94 Ballerina Blues

Happy Tuesday!  It just seems like Tuesdays come and go so quickly these days - but we all love the fact that it is time for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge.  I think sketch challenges are among my favourite and you cannot go past Priscilla's sketches for something to inspire you!

For me, this weeks sketch was a little different -= and I love that!  The variety just keeps the brain ticking - and I know I DEFINITELY need that!  LOL!  I have used the gorgeous Ballerina Resting from "priscillastyles" Stores.  She is divine - infact I used her last week and just had to use her again!!

U have coloured her with Prismacolor Pencils and  Odourless Mineral Spirits, adding some tulle under her dress - a major fete seeing as I decided to do that AFTER I had popped her up with foam tape - but here there is a will, there is a way!! LOL!

I made the flowers and added a LARGE pearl (thanks Gunn) fo the centre.

I have also coloured it with some of the gorgeous Spray Glimmer Mist from Lindy's Stamp Gang - our monthly sponsor.  This product is amazing and sadly, I have yet to capture it enough on the cards to show it off at it's best!  There are also touches on the dress - it is divine IRL!!  You are going to have to take my word on that!
