Sketch Challenge #2

Happy Sunday!!! Here's the sketch for Technostamper's weekly sketch challenge:

















Here's the card I came up with!!!
















Stamps: So Many Scallops; Birthday Whimsy (....and many more!)

Ink: Lovely Lilac; Regal Rose Craft Ink

Cardstock: Lovely Lilac; Whisper White; Flowers for You Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Scallop Punch; Quick Kutz Nesting Flowers Die Cut; Cuddlebug; Color Coach; Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder

This is so weird...I don't know why everything is double spaced here...it's making me mad. Anyhow, I used the Color Coach to trace the turquoise designer paper circle...isn't that funny!!! That Color Coach is worth it's weight in gold!!!! The scallop is stamped with Regal Rose Craft Ink and embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder for that BLING effect!

Again this was SUPER fun!!! I started with the balloons from the Birthday Whimsey stamp set, stamped and embossed them with Iridescent Ice embossing powder too - I cut them all out and tried like crazy to make my sketch challenge card with them...it just didn't work for me....soooooooo I finished the card above for the challenge and then couldn't toss those beautiful balloons I painstakingly cut out.....and the result was the card I posted just before this post! These challenges really make me think outside the box and I LIKE that!

Here's a link to look at other cards made with this same sketch. They will be posted at Noon on Mondays:

What a fun birthday creation! And that's a super "tip" about the Color Coach! *grin*

Great idea about the color coach...I swear I looked for something for 1/2 hour that was large enough.

Pretty colors and great thinking to use the Color Coach! Thankfully I had hung on to a drawing compass one of my kids must have used in geometry or something, lol! I might never thought of the CC! TFS!
