Well.....today is a double duty design team day. I have two design cards to post today. The first is my design card for Artful Sentiments by Kimm's copic challenge. You can link to the master challenge post to the right on my sidebar. This week's colors are a true indication that fall is on the way. This time last year I was in New England leaf peeking and I sure wish I was back there again. The fall color back East is WAY more beautiful than out in the Pacific Northwest. I even had to go through all of our pictures last night just to reflect on our wonderful time there. So....in honor of the beautiful fall colors that are surely happening in New Hampshire and Vermont, here is my challenge card. The scene stamp is from Hero Arts and is colored with the required copics plus a few extra colors around those to give depth. I was a little dissappointed in the way the colors scanned. The patterned paper really is more the color of the image. When you scan dimensionals, it tends to make the color of the paper change. The leaves of the tree are mounted up. The little paper leaves were in my stash from a 'must have' purchase from the LSS several years ago! This card in itself was double duty as it is the Midnight Madness sketch challenge of the week! MMSC21! ;-)
Next is my design team card for The SweetStopSketch Challenge 24. This is my first posting as part of Korin's Sugar Baby team. What fun! You can click on the Sweet Stop pink badge to the right and see the sketch challenge for the week. We have a wonderful line up of Sugar Babies for the Challenge team. Make sure you take a look at their wonderful creations too! I have had this cute little Penny Black dog since last Thanksgiving and it was time to use him. I knew right away that his horn would have to be out of the box!! He was colored with copic markers. The dotted paper on the bottom of the heap is some of my hoarded patterned paper that I have vowed to use as much as possible. The swirly layer is the triple dimension technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter and it actually a treble staff stamp. The layer just under the sentiment is a technique I had submitted to the TJ newsletter called Rubber Thwamping. I think the technique has been around a while but I don't know from where. I used lentils for my thwamping! This is the same technique that I used for my card for the TJ blog hop a few days ago. So easy and fun.
So there you have it........a double post for today!! Now get off the computer and get back to your stamping!!
