Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #118

Every week, Taylor Van Bruggen of Taylored Expressions posts a sketch challenge for anyone that wants to take part. I am proud to post my very first sketch just in the nick of time! Hop on over to Taylor's blog and check out all the entries. Tomorrow's the last day to enter.


I soo love this Crafter Cuppie set...if you're a crafter, you have to get it!  It has five images of Cuppie stamping, scrapping, sewing, knitting, and painting along with sentiments.  There's also an additional coordinating set called Crafty Expressions with other images and sentiments.

I used Bazzill Dotted Swiss in Pirouette as the 5 1/2" square card base and as one of the scalloped borders.  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry collection. The solid cardstocks are Shimmer Couture from A Muse.

I used my Copic markers to color in the main image.  Cuppie's apron is paper pieced from the BG Nook and Pantry.  For the jar of glitter, I used the Sakura Glue pen (miracle product) first to make dots inside the jar and sprinkled it with Taylor's glitter in Waterfall.  Oh so sparkly...I love how shimmery her glitters are!

The postal cancel stamp image is from Paper Source, stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate pigment ink, and embossed with clear powder over the ink to give it a raised texture. It's hard to tell in the picture but it's there.

Here's the inside of the card.  I stamped one of the sentiments from Crafty Expressions in Adirondack Espresso along with the ink pad image in Colorbox Fluid Chalk Berrylicious.

I'm really happy with how my card turned out!  Thanks for the challenge Taylor!
