Try it Out Tuesday #5 - A Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Today is Try It Out Tuesday--Challenge #5 over at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design store blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was a sketch challenge. Our wonderful DT leader, Suzanne, came up with the following sketch for us:





For my card, I decided to use this adorable fairy stamp from Susana's store, Sassafras. I inked her up with Memento Black ink (don't forget to check out Marti's store for some great sales) and stamped her onto PTI cardstock. I colored her with copics, added Stickles to her wings, and cut her out with my circle nestabilities. I next created my card base out of SU's Rose Red. I layered Always Artichoke on top of that followed by my design paper from DCWV's Nana's Nursery stack (baby girl). I used my Martha Stewart Lacy Doily punch on the smaller design panel. I added a ribbon and bow, and then adhered my image to a scalloped circle with dimensionals. I added these beautiful Decorative Photo Corners from Spellbinders. It's difficult to see in my picture (the lighting was pretty bad this morning) but these have beautiful embossing on them. For a finishing touch, I added three pearls to the bottom of the card.

I'd love to hear what you think of my card. Make sure to stop by Susana's Store Blog to see the other wonderful creations the design team have come up with. Also, Susana is welcoming a new Guest Design Team Member, Aud. Make sure to check out her blog Here, her work is amazing.

That's it from me today. Thanks so much for stopping by. See you back here tomorrow :)

Hugs, Christine
