Wow so many new product announcements today. First, I watched the Apple event to learn about the new iPad, then I scrolled through my googlereader and saw the new Basic Grey papers coming out next month. Gorgeous!!! I need to start dwindling down my stash to make room for the new goods, LOL. Did you know that Basic Grey sells fabric too. Sigh! If only I could sew ... their fabric is yummy! Moving on to my creation for the day. This is a new image from Whipper Snapper called Raggedy Anne. Did you have a Raggedy Anne doll growing up? I did! In fact, I had one that was a few feet tall. You can tell that it was well loved on throughout the years. I decided to make this Valentine a little different - look no pink - and stick with a country theme. The Basic Grey Marrakech paper was perfect to accomplish that look. I just love that quilted pattern! I had a fun time coloring this image. I kept the palette simple and added some highlights with a Sharpie Poster-Paint pen. The heart was punched once in the Marrakech paper and then again in Chocolate Chip. I then just layered them together. I tried to use a dainty ribbon so it would match the bows in her hair. Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!!
