Sketch Something!

Hi All, Happy Friday!!

That means it's time for another STAMP SOMETHING challenge and this week it's a sketch. The wonderfully talented Emily Weems, of our design team, has created this fun sketch for everyone to try. There's also some great blog candy up for grabs. Hop on over and check out the new challenge! :) Big thanks to Emily for hosting this week too!




For my card I choose to make something fun! I've been doing a lot of fancy wedding stuff lately and so I wanted a break from all of that!

I started out with a 5 1/2" square Night of Navy card, then layered on White and Bashful Blue cardstock. The white layer is paper pierced on all four corners. The bashful piece has been rolled with my Sweet Stars wheel. I then layered on a piece of wide Saffron ribbon from the Sherbet Originals collection and a piece of grosgrain Bashful ribbon. The main image is from Pun Fun. I stamped it in Staz-On ink, then used my Watercolor Wonder Crayons and an aquapainter to color the image. I added some silver EP to the little circles for some metal on my rocket, then used Iridescent Ice EP on the streams of stars. The corners on the white have also been paper pierced to mimic the corners on the other white cardstock. The final touch was to add a So Saffron star and Stickles! (All products are Stampin' Up! except the Stickles)

It was a blast doing this sketch challenge! I hope you'll join us this week and sketch something! Have a great weekend! Happy Stamping! :)

What a striking color combination! I wasn't sure if I would use all of the stamps in that particular set so I've had it on my "pending" wish list for a while now, but that rocket is so darn cute, I think it's officially moved to my "must have" wish list! :-)

Many Blessings,

Denise,
This is my fav stamp from Pun Fun. I used it to make DS's goody bag tags for his Wall-E party. It is sooo very cute. Love the card colors!
