Not only was this week a new sketch for us to use, but Arlana also challenged us to use certain colors too! Every fourth week of the month we will be given a color challenge in addition to the sketch. I hope that you will decide to play along with us!
Here is a picture of this week's sketch...
And these were the colors we were to use...
Here is the sample that I came up with for this week's sketch!
The DP is from BG and the card stock is from SU. I used a little bit darker toned pinks then you see pictured here. The stamps are from Unity. The viney flowers are one of the new stamps from the June KOM and the "We Care" sentiment is from the Nov 08 KOM. The images were stamped onto the so saffron CS and then colored with my Copics. I added the dimensional Bella Baubles underneath the sentiment and in the center of the flowers. The flowers are Petaloo and I think the ribbon is from Michael's. I also added a touch of my Sakura Gelly Roll pen to the vines for just a hint of glimmer.
I made the sketch my own by turning the squares on point to make them diamonds.
So, please head over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and take a look at the rest of the DT's samples. You will definitely be inspired, trust me!!
I have one more thing to share with you for now that will be quite inspiring also! Over at the SheetLoad site Alicia is starting a new feature that is able to help all card makers whether beginner, intermediate or advanced. The feature is called "Simple, Special, Stunning!"
One DT member per month will take you through a SheetLoad sketch at three different levels. One level is Simple, then she will boost it up a notch and show you how to make the same sketch special and finally how to make it Stunning! Be sure to check this feature out each month near the 20th! Click HERE to see this month's feature of Simple, Special, Stunning!
That is it for now. I will try to be back later today with another Sneak peek of another upcoming digistamp being released at Whimsie Doodles on July 1st.
Have a great day and may your bucket overflow with Sweet and Stunning things!!
