Hey guys, Happy Thursday! This week is going by so fast...I'm not quite sure where it went. The good news is that I'm almost caught up on the stamping I was behind on, so now there will be more time to play! Hopefully my family will cooperate...fingers crossed!
I wanted to post the card I made last night for yesterday's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast. Get out your sunglasses...I was feeling BRIGHT! *wink*
Kenya Ketto arrived on my doorstep on Tuesday, so I decided to ink her right up. Isn't she fabulous? I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with Copic Markers. Once she was colored, I cut and embossed her with my new Deckled Rectangle Nestabilities and added a tiny black mat. For my base layer, I chose Apricot Appeal and stamped Kenya's Sparkle in Marigold Morning. I then sponged the edges with Marigold Morning, going in a little farther than I normally would, then sponged Tangerine Tango on the very edge to tie in the orange. After adding a black mat, I made a couple rounds with my sewing machine to add some straight but funky stitching. For the panels across, I chose strips of Tempting Turquoise and Tangerine Tango (gee, that's a lot of T's!) and embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. A little white peeking out from under made the panels pop off the black layer, which I punched with my Martha Stewart Border Punch. Then to finish it off, I added the "Oh, Happy Day" sentiment (love that one!!) and three small Blue Crackle Dots. You likey?
In other news, I noticed the other day that I am nearing 175K hits. WOW, you guys!!! When I started my blog, I thought only my mom and sister would read it! I am beyond flabbergasted that other people come visit me. Thank you!!! So....stay tuned for blog candy tomorrow or Saturday, k? Have a fabulous day!
