Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge- WSC24

This is what I created using Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. The paper is Chocolate Chip, Marigold Morning (SU retired) and Daisy D's Designer Paper - Gypsy... For SU products I used the Bronco, All In a Row and Wild About You stamp set. The Ink I used was chocolate chip and I used the large Pewter Brads with hemp and glue dots. Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Lopsided Circle -another take on Debby M's Sketch

Well, after viewing the sketch and creating the previous card - Holly from Holly Bear Creations, suggested to off set the circles.... So here is what I came up with...

On my last card, I had originally made the circles too large and had to trim them down. This left me with scraps of lunar shapes. When I saw them I had this idea! Always use your unique shaped scraps! :) The colors I used were from SU - Pomegranite, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky DP, basic Black and Whisper White. I also used to white gel pen to highlight areas on the paper.

One thing I thought - but had the card already well glued down was to add brads going down the sides of the circles - for a little extra "something."

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

Debby's Sketch Challenge for 10-16-07

The polar bear card was made by Debby M. This was her sketch. Isn't it great? The card I made using this sketch is the Merry, Merry card. I used the Soft Sky designer paper - stamped on it. I used the Coluzzle to cut the half circles. The colors are Purely Pomegranite, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi and Basic Black....

This card uses the small clips made by SU. I just LOVE them. I used the TRUE FRIEND stamp set, along with the Circle of Friendship and the All In a Row. I rarely use the Handsome Hunter, so thought it would be fun to play with - I also sprayed Glimmer Mist on the card to add some shimmer. Once I stamped the image and sprayed the Glimmer Mists - the ink ran a bit so I went back over it with a marker to give the image a "crisper" look.

Weekend Sketch Challenge

Well- with my schedule lately, it seems I have about one or two days a week to stamp. This week I worked on Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge and this is what I came up with...
I purchased a product called Glimmer Mists that adds a colored shimmer to your artwork. I also used the Crop-O-Dile and added the dimension to the small circles on the oval punches. I got a little over zealous with the Glimmer Mist and had to highlight some areas with the white gel pen. The Faux Stitching uses the All in a Row stamp set.

WSC-22 Timeless

This weekend, my friend Danita and I did some stamping. It was lots of fun. Here is another card made with Beate's Challenge. This one used a stamp I do not know who made. I borrowed it from Danita. I just LOVE this image!

I crumped the paper and then sponged it with bordering blue and lightly with Navy. I also sponged the Blue Bayou ribbon with Night of navy to make it a bit darker. It worked out prefectly and matched the Bordering Blue better. The butterflies and the watch - I cut out and used dimensionals to give the card a little "dimension."

This was a color challenge too from Splitcoast Stampers. The colors I used are Regal Rose, Blush Blossom, Bordering Blue and Night of Navy. I also used the French Flair BG, Canvas BG on the cardstock.

WSC-22 Twinkling Princess

Here is Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge... My little Gracie has her first GIRLIE birthday party. She is SO excited. So I created this card for her to take along with the gift! I embossed the flowers and swirls in Hologram Highlights. Painted the Flowers with Making Memory's paint - and painted the Princess using Twinkling H20's. Everything **TWINKLES***
