Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge


TGIF! It's time for another Bloggers Challenge - this week the Challenge Team is working with the following sketch. As you can see it's a pretty simple sketch to work with. If you'd like to play along just leave a direct link to your project on this post.


Using the sketch as my inspiration, I changed the focal layer to fit the image I wanted to use, and omitted the brads and replaced that with a sentiment.



The focal image is from Holiday Lineup, stamped in Black on Watercolor Paper then colored using the Marker Watercoloring Technique. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, stamped in Red on Watercolor Paper, punched with the Modern Label Punch, then layered on a piece of Chocolate Chip card stock that was punched using the Curly Label Movers & Shapers Die and the Punch Windows Die. The dies from the Punch Window layer nicely under the other coordinating Stampin' Up! punches. To add the bling to my card, I simply removed the gems from the Rhinestone Brads and adhered the gem with a glue dot.


Details:
Stamps - Holiday Lineup, Teeny Tiny Words (all Stampin' Up!)
Ink - Black, Markers, Soft Suede
Card Stock - Watercolor, Chocolate Chip, Merry Moments
Other - Aquapainter, Sponge Dauber, Rhinestone Brads, Glue Dots, Big Shot, Modern Label Punch, Movers & Shapers Die, Punch Windows Die, Chocolate Chip Grosgrain

Love the card. I especially love the sentiment in the punch. Both of those are on my 'wish list.'
I did your challenge and I loved the sketch. I have heard from many others about the fun of a challenge so I decided to try it for the first time. So here is my link to the card I made.
