Try It Out Tuesday #14 - Sketch and Color Challenge



Hi Everyone and Happy Tuesday! :) I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today is Tuesday so it's another Try It Out Tuesday challenge over at Susana's (from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design) Store Blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was a combination sketch and color challenge. We were to use a sketch created by our wonderful DT leader, Suzanne and we were also to only use the colors brown, pink, and white/cream (this happens to be one of my favorite color combinations so I had a lot of fun with this challenge :) ). I decided to ink up this gorgeous Rubber Romance stamp, Retro Robin as my main image. I love these RR stamps, they are so elegant. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with copics. I inked around the image with SU's Close to Cocoa ink to give it an elegant and distressed feel to it.

Next, I created my card base out of SU's Pretty in Pink. I layered Very Vanilla on top of that followed by Chocolate Chip, followed by my design paper (which is from an old SU retired set). I added Pearls to the corners of the image, then adhered the image to my SU cardstock and to the card base with dimensionals. For a finishing touch, I added three dew drops to the card base.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I would love to see what you think of my card. Make sure to stop by Susana's Store Blog to see the amazing creations the rest of the DT have come up with. We would love it if you would like to participate in any of the Try It Out Tuesday challenges. If you upload your work to SCS or PCP, make sure to put tiot14 in the keywords section so we can all see your work. Well, that's it for me today. Thanks again so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project.

Hugs, Christine :)

She is a little hottie, I love how her shirt looks textured. I'm gonna have to go back and check but I think we ALL used Baubles. Obviously they are a must have item.
