Tuesday Morning Sketch #51: Caught a Bug?

Digi image: Whimsie Doodles 'Sitting Dottie'; sentiment is computer-generated. Cardstock: GP110 white, Wild Wasabi, DCWV 'Nana's Kitchen'. Ink: copics. Accessories: primas, gemstone brad, hand-colored baubles, oval Nestabilities, WW punch, Crystal effects, Stardust glitter pen.

Here's this week's Tuesday Morning Sketch #51, sponsored by Whimsie Doodles:

This card was created with the help of several talented crafters, including Whimsie Doodle's Melyssa's Eye-Coloring Tutorial. Even though these eyes are on a very small scale, the results of following this tutorial are still impressive:

You can also see the paper-piecing in the above photo; that technique is courtesy of another talented Melissa.

Also be sure to note the baubles that are hand-colored with alcohol inks by my swapping buddy, Linda. Isn't this an amazing selection that this very generous gal sent me?

**Next week, Tuesday Morning Sketches will officially be one year old! Don't miss out on an entire month of fun, including returning guest designers and LOTS of blog candy!!
