TESC122 Cheers to You

July 23rd, 2010

Happy Friday!  It’s time for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge – TESC122.  The stamp featured on tesc122-custom.jpgtoday’s card has been sitting on my stamp table forever begging to get inked up!  I purchased it at the CHA SuperShow in January and it’s from Denami.  Denami was one of my very first loves when I started stamping years ago.  I have always loved her cute whimsical style.  These birdies just seemed to fit with this sketch, although I will say that I had a plan for balloons where you see butterflies on the sketch but I just couldn’t make them work.  So I kind of feel like I cheated a bit on the idea of the sketch.  The sentiment is from a SU set.



Papers used are October Afternoon Fly a Kite along with the TE June Cardstock Kit which coordinates with this paper collection.  I rounded the corners of the image panel with the Corner Chomper and layered it onto  a panel cut with Big Scallop Rectangle.  That little strip of circles is a piece of Doodlebug Paper Frills I got a really really long time ago.  I colored it with a copic marker.  I added some Tiny Twinkles (stars) and some Stickles (yellow and fruit punch), plus I covered the chicks in Smooch Illuminate Glitter Top Coat.  This card is really sparkly in person!

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up for us:

  • Alice Wertz
  • Jami Sibley (you are here!)
  • Lisa Hjulberg
  • Melissa Sauls
  • Monika Davis
  • Rosie Hughes
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Taylor VanBruggen  – get all the details to play along with us!
  • Thanks for stopping by.  Have a fantastic weekend!
