Stampendous! Saturday sketch Challenge

TGIS! I actually got to sleep in this morning til almost 9 thanks to my little one! He's finally getting on summer hours! I took Michael and Taylor to see "Knight and Day" last night. Perry refused; he thought it looked stupid. It was definitely a date flick...action for the guy, romance for the girl, and lots of humor. As long as you don't expect it to be a true action movie you will like it. Tom Cruise is back to his Jerry Maguire charming self as the critics are saying :)

But alas, you want to see some eye candy, don't you? It was my turn again this week to draw up the challenge for Stampendous! I created a square card sketch for you, but it doesn't have to be square. My additional challenge is to use glitter as well.

Above is the sketch. If you would like to join us just create a card (or scrapbook layout) using the sketch and then link it back to the Stampendous! blog. You have until Thursday night 12AM PST for your submission. As always there will be 2 prizes up for grabs!!

This is what I ended up with using "Wildflower Sprigs" a clear set from Stampendous! I colored directly on the stamp with my copic markers then reactivated the ink with a spritz of Copic blender solution before I stamped it on the paper. This creates a nice watercolor effect. I also added a foreground layer of smaller wildflowers in Old Paper Tim Holtz Distress ink and then airbrushed lightly over the whole image while still in the Nestabilties die.

This is a closeup of the image once the glitter is added. I randomly dotted my Quickie Glue pen on the Magenta flowers then added Rose Jewel Stampendous! glitter. The sentiment and the 3 scallops are all stamped with other images from the same "Wildflower Sprigs" stamp set. The rest of my supplies are all listed at the bottom of the post, and below is a photo with my copics.

  1. Love those colors! (I keep making samples with those colors as well...wonder why that is?)Very cool technique. I'll have to buy blender solution with my copics!
