Week 2 Color Combo!

The second week of the wonderful Summer Card Camp has almost past... It's Saturday night and I have finally taken some time away from "life" to put together my contribution for this week's Color Combo.
This is what I came up with, using sketch #1 by Kristina Werner:
It says "a little GIRL" in Swedish and is going to be sent to my former co-worker who just had a little baby girl! Always love when you can combine fun with the need-to-do stuff!

Here's a close-up of the coloring. Actually this is a version of a technique I tried out today for the first time. I've done it before, but never with Distress Ink Colors. I've used a blender pen to pick up the Distress Inks, just like Kristina did in her video, and found out that it works fabulous! Excellent when you don't want to mess with water and brushes - and much faster too! Love it!

Materials used:
CS from Bazzill and Stampin' Up!
Clear Alpha stamps from Making Memories - the star is from the same set
The Pear Pizazz CS from Stampin' Up! is stamped in Pear Pizazz classic Ink with a clear backgroundstamp "Grunge" from KaiserCraft

Twine "Referee" from We R Memory Keepers
Stamp from Magnolia
Distress Inks
Blender Pen
Sewing Machine
Alphabet "Jacqueline" by QuicKutz - used with my Cuttlebug to diecut the black letters
Lace borderpunch from Martha Stewart
Glitter on the wings
