Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 154

Pin It
Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the very end of this post to enter your card. The links will close in two weeks, next Friday at 10 PM (Mountain Time). Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC154 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

WANT TO BE A GUEST Sweet Sunday Stamper?  I'll be picking my favorite card or project after each challenge and that winner will have a special guest spot as a designer on a future Sweet Sunday Challenge.  I'm SO excited about this!  You can enter as many different cards as you'd like before the following Friday deadline, so get stampy!

I will be announcing the next Guest Sweet Sunday Stamper later this week, so be sure to check back to see if you will be joining the design team for SSSC155!





I inked up my Bearing Flowers bear from The Cat's Pajamas for today's card.  Poor guy hasn't seen ink for a loooong time.

I stamped him in Brilliance Graphite Black Ink and colored him with Copic markers.  I stamped another image so I could cut out the sunflower and pop it up over the edge of the frame.


It's always a good idea to color underneath when you create a dimensional image since you can still see part of the image.  I didn't color the entire flower, just the petals and I only used one Copic - no shading necessary here.


The Sweet Sunday Stampers have amazing sketch samples to show you today, so stop on by to see:
Thanks for stopping by!
Karen

recipe -
stamps: bearing flowers (the cat's pajamas)

ink: brilliance graphite black
accessories: copic markers, square/scallop spellbinders dies, sewing machine, thread, foam tape
