So excited! I finally was able to get my new Gimme Some Sugar set by TCP inked up. I am DETERMINED to play in challenges this year and get my stamps inky. My stamp table is a mess, but it is a GOOD mess! LOL!
This card is actually doing triple duty. I created this for this weeks TCP Tuesday 193 challenge along with Jen's SFYTT for January 2012. Jen always has awesome sketches and I promised myself to also play along with her challenges. It also can be used for the Valentine's blog hop happening over at TCP. You can check out all the deets here.
The color challenge is yummy and perfect for a "shabby" Valentine card and Jen's sketch was also perfect for my favorite image from the Spring 2012 TCP release (Alma...you had me at Sprinkle)!
Patterned papers are a huge mix: Stella and Rose Mable and Gertie (MME), Love Me (MME) and Yours Truly (EP). The challenge colors are all there too: Melon Mambo, Early Espresso and Pink Pirouette.
The super cute Sprinkle image from "Gimme Some Sugar" was stamped on patterned paper. I had a lot of fun stamping the little banners on patterned paper and customizing them with all the fun little elements included with the set. Colored the image with Copics and Sprinkle's eyes are made extra mesmerizing with a Copic Spica glitter pen. I added just a smidgen of some pleated satin ribbon (Maya Road) under the booth to lock like a table cloth and then attached the banner over it. I then cut out the image with my circle nesties "finally" trying the out of the box technique that Nancy always does so well. You can't see too much of it, but just barely peeking out underneath the horizontal panel is a portion of the new "Queen of Hearts" border CutUps. A couple Maya Road stick pins were all the extra embellishment needed.
Thanks for stopping by!
