An Inspiration and a Sketch Challenge!


Happy Friday Everyone! I hope that you had a wonderful week! We have been blessed with some beautiful weather here in New England...very hot and very humid! Luckily, we have been swimming everyday and just enjoying all that summer has to offer. I've been getting a lot of stamping time in this week too. I'm very thankful for that! For today's creation, (I actually posted two other times this week...lol!) the Blogger's Challenge players were given the above photograph as inspiration. From that photograph, I created this card...

I was really inspired by the colors in the bedding (a teal blue, chocolate brown, a bit of yellow, and a touch of green and pink). This week's Wednesday Stamp Club from My Favorite Things is a sketch challenge, so I started with that and from there I added this MFT Pure Innocence image called Happy Mail. She's colored up with Copic Markers (BG11, BG13, C1, C3, E000, E00, E01, E25, E29, R20, R27, R29, RV11, RV34, Y21, Y32, and the Colorless Blender). Following the sketch, I used some Stampin' Up patterned papers from an older Simply Scrappin' kit. The colors in the paper were a great match to the bedding. I added an MFT Die-namics sun of So Saffron to my card with a button for the center and then I added a few Making Memories brads. The Chocolate Chip panel was embossed in my 'Bug for some added texture. For more inspiration with this fun bedding, you can check out what the other Ladies from the Blogger's Challenge group have come up with here. Enjoy your weekend and thank you for stopping by for a visit...Toodles! :D
