TESC128 Adore Him

September 17th, 2010


Happy Friday!  Time for another sketch challenge from Taylor – TESC128.  Everyone is welcome to play along  – Taylored Expressions stamps are NOT a requirement.  This is an easy and versatile sketch, but when I first saw it all I could think of was people sitting in a theater looking at a big movie screen.  I had to resist the urge to go with the obvious and create a card with Cuppie in the theater, so I started looking around at what else I might want to work with.  I just got a big Stampin’ Up order a couple of days ago. (yes, I still buy SU stuff) and realized that this silhouette image would work well with the sketch. Also I’ve been wanting to try the bouncing brayer technique that Baker’s Dozen member Charmaine Ikach does so beautifully.  Here’s what I came up with.


So often these Bethlehem scenes are done in blues, but I’m not much a blue person so I decided to go with purples instead. I used the Parfait SU Kaleidacolor pad (please tell me I’m not the only person with over a dozen of these K-pads – one of my original stamping obsessions – LOL!) along with Elegant Eggplant and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  The image was heat embossed (black craft ink and clear ep) on shimmer white cs and black was used for matting.  Ribbon is Rich Razzleberry satin.  The Arbor border punch with Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles finish off the design.

Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has in store for us today –

Go to Taylor’s blog for all the info to play along with us!  Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great weekend!
