Friday Sketchers #6 is Heaven Sent & News from Cloud 9!!!
WOW! All of the DT members at Friday Sketchers keep pumpin' out awesome sketches. I can't believe how quickly this card came together yesterday afternoon, a true sign of a fabulous sketch, smile! Thanks, Jacqueline, it was great fun to work with your sketch!!!
I decided I would use this little Tingla stamp as I haven't made a card with her yet and I thought I would use up the scraps of Fancy Pants paper that I used to make a mini-album with last weekend (love,love,love this paper)! As I was getting my "mise en place" before getting inky, smile. I had another one of those light bulb moments and went back to my stamp binder to grab my Magnolia cloud stamp. I stamped Tingla on the blue cloud-like side of the FP Confetti pp and (I made a mask but my dh pointed out later that I probably didn't have to, oh well.) then I stamped the cloud upside-down for her to lie on. I stamped two more clouds off the edge of the pp to look as if they were floating by in the background. I ran it through the Cuttlebug with my circle Nestibilites die and added some crystal Stickles. I stamped Tingla again on Georgia Pacific White Cardstock with Archival Brilliance Graphite black ink and coloured it with my Copic markers, added crystal Stickles to her wings and let it dry before I cut it out. Then I adhered it with some pop-dots on to the stamped image on the blue pp.
The card base is 6x6 and is cut from a piece of Bazzill Basics Orange Bling Cardstock. I inked all the edges of the pp and adhered them to the card. I used the small scalloped circle Nestibilites to cut a mat for the main image out of the "wheat" coloured side of the Jubilate pp. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the Kelly Panacci Baby clear stamp set with brown Staz-On ink on a tag from the FP die-cut sheet, inked the edges, added a MM gemstone brad and some pink American Craft ribbon before attaching the main image of Tingla to the card.
So, I have some exciting news to share, grin!!! Do ya wanna know what it is??? Well, I am absolutely on cloud 9, smile!!! Cuz I have been chosen to be on the DT for my LSS, The Scrapbook Academy, YAY!!! When I went to the store yesterday, Jackie, gave me my first DT kit....oh, sooooo exciting!!!
