Sweet November Preview Day 3 - Briar and Sonata

Welcome to day the last day of the April Sweet November previews. Todays projects feature Briar & Sonata. Be sure to also click on over to guest designer 1LuvnMama as well as another terrific All That Scraps designer, Rachel. Amy, the illustrator behind the Sweet November line is offering a chance for some great blog candy so please check it out to see how easily you can win.

Briar is a new character for Sweet November. I stamped both images onto Copic X-Press blending card, colored with Copic markers and then cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities with a small amount of "out of the box" action. I then masked the two images and sprayed the splotchy background with my very old Stampin' Up Color Spritzer tool. I no longer have any viable SU markers to use with it but my Memento Brown marker fit in it just fine. Can you tell that I gave Briar a ruddy complexion befitting his outdoorsy way of life? All patterned paper came from the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose 6x6 pads (Gertie and Hazel).
