Friday Sketchers Challenge #4

Here is my card for the Friday Sketchers challenge this week. Ok, do I need to explain this card to you? Well, it's a bit cheeky! Dotty has been moonlighting as a Kiss-a-gram! I think that the sentiment really works well as she looks so cheeky and confident with her hands on her hips! My OH suggested adding balloons to put her in a celebratory setting (I cut these out freehand and added wire to them). I also added a key in the top right corner to suggest handcuffs! And a little heart in the bottom right corner to suggest that it's only a bit of fun!! I used Dottie from the Dottie at Work downloads, available here, and printed her out onto white, beige and navy card stock. I paper pieced her together (much to the distress of Dylan who kept saying "Mummy cut Dottie's head off!") and added emphasis with a white glaze pen.
Thanks for coming to visit, Love Becky xx

Oh Becky this is priceless! You actually made me laugh out loud! in fact I'm still giggling as I type. What a great idea to make her a Kissagram. I'm so glad to read that you get a feel for what kind of attitude she has (with her hands on her hips) It makes it a real success for me because I really wanted to get that accross when I drew her.
I love how your family get involved in your crafting too I had to laugh at what your son said, bless him.xx
