SOG September 2013 Sketch

I found a little time to colour the adorable Big Pressie Tia and create a card for a friend's granddaughter.

My starting point for the layout was the Some Odd Girl sketch for September. I used some EP Hello Summer papers to cover a white card base, cut some a|s sugar cardstock with a Spellbinders Labels 8 die and spritzed it with a|s Splash ink in lemon whip. The sentiment was stamped on a Wplus9 banner die cut. Tia was trimmed out, covered in Versamark ink, and embossed with a half & half mix of clear embossing powder and Prisma glitter.

Sharing my colour combos for all the Touch Twin users out there:

Supplies Used
stamps: SOG Big Pressie Tia, PTI  Fillable Frames 4
ink: touch twin alcohol markers, versafine onyx black, a|s lemon whip splash, versamark
cardstock: Crafter's Companion White, a|s sugar
other: Spellbinders labels 8 die, Wplus9 banner trio dies, Ranger super fine detail clear embossing powder, Prisma glitter

Hugs and Kisses.

Kisses by Mo Manning

While surfing the 'net recently, I came across some card samples using digital stamps by Mo Manning. I found her site, checked out her stamps and fell in love. I really like that she has a few images available in more than one ethnicity, perfect for me as I try out new skin colour combinations with my Touch Twin Brush markers. So I bought a few stamps and today I'm sharing my first creation - Kisses.

I wanted to experiment with a darker skin tone and use some of my fluorescent markers, and I managed to do both with this card. The bright colours and that sweet little kissy face make me so very happy. I used OWH sketch 191 as my starting point, but ended up with pinked edges instead of the fishtail banner. The papers are from Echo Park Hello Summer and were coloured with F123 to make a better match to her dress. I added a sentiment from A Muse Studio Just Because and called it done.

For all the Touch Twin users out there, here are the colour combos I used for this sweet little image:

I'm entering my bright and cheerful card in Mo's Digital Challenge this week - say it with flowers. I'm also entering it into the Color Me Creative challenge - Anything Goes.

Hugs and Kisses.

Supplies Used

paper: sugar (a|s), Crafter's Companion White, Hello Summer (EP)
