It's been a while... MFTSC40

Today's card was made for the 40th MFT sketch challenge. I had been wanting to ink up my new set, Call Me, for a while now and the square shape of the image fit perfectly into the sketch.

I stamped the image once each onto white cardstock, pink patterned paper, brown PP, and then twice onto green PP. After the ink was thoroughly dry, I colored the white CS version with Copics. I wanted a little more of a heather gray look to her pants, so I colored then first with C-7, then airbrushed over that with the colorless blender. It's a pretty subtle effect, but I think it looks a little more "textured" than just the plain gray.

You can see more of the dimension in this shot. The body with the phone attached was glued over the first layer of the chair (*except* for the arm and phone), then I added a couple layers of scrap CS to the bottom part of the chair, then the paper pieced bottom of the chair, slipped behind the arm. I also added a few layers of scrap CS under the phone to pop it up even more. I hope you like it!

Materials used: all patterned paper - K & Co. (Studio K); white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; flowers - Prima; pearl Dew Drops - The Robin's Nest; ribbon - May Arts; dies - Spellbinders; Waxy Flax - Close to My Heart; button - unknown.
