Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image – the rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to “use a number.”
For my card I used only the sketch this week. I began with the February Stamp of the Month “Snowman and Cocoa” which I colored with Copic Markers in the combination of E35, YR15, Y15 and Y11 for the yellow and R59, R46 and R27 for the reds. I just got my sewing machine back and and had some fun with the settings making a great pattern on the lawn fawn paper. I also added some faux stitching and doodling with my pigma micron pen. For a few final touches I added a glitter jelly pen to the snowflakes and used the sentiment from “Hello Sentiments.”
You have until Sunday, February 21st to enter Sketch #139 at From The Heart Stamps. Hope to see you there!
Happy Monday! That means it’s time for a new Cards in Envy Challenge and this week we are celebrating Tickled Pick cards! Please make sure your card fits into a standard A2 envelope without any large lumps or bumps. The challenge will run through Sunday, February 28th and our design team will be choosing their favorite cards to feature on the The Cards in Envy blog.
For my card I used the January 2016 Hero Arts Card Kit. This is a fabulous kit that includes two stamp sets, three dies, note cards, envelopes, vellum, shaker transparency, sequins, and ink.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week for your Tickled Pink cards for the Cards in Envy Challenge!
