Chocolate covered Autum Digi Stamp Sketch Card!
Hee, hee, the title had to include the challenges for this card!
This is for the Clearly i-Stamp Digi Card Challenge HERE. It is to use any Clear Dollar Stamps Digi Images. This digi image is actually free with any purchase. Plus, they have a new free image if you want to try out their images & do the challenges. I must say I like the colors on this card better than the last one I did with the same image!
Also for The Shabby Tea Room Challenge HERE. Photo Challenge for :Chocolate Covered Autumn. I would totally love to just take a big bite out of this cake, but it's probably not gluten free. Rats! LOL!
AND Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge HERE. (oops, just realized this was supposed to also have PINK on it---guess I won't enter my card there! LOL!).
Image: Fall Floral Jug from Clear Dollar Stamps.
Words: Autumn Blessings Stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps. (This IS available as a digi image, but I WON this set from CDS, so used the regular stamp version). Thank you Clear Dollar Stamps!
Paper: DP: Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby; all colored cardstock from Hobby Lobby. White cardstock Georgia Pacific.
Other stuff: Cropadial, Ranger Distress ink in Antique Photo, copics, brads from my friend Jenn, Scor-Pal, Paper Punch from EK Success (scalloped scallops)
I made the criss-cross design in the orange paper by putting my paper on my Scor-Pal diagonally, then making marks every 1/4", turned & did it the other way. It's kind of the quilted look, too. I added distress ink to make the ridges pop out.
Now, it may appear that I like to color outside of the lines. Actually, in very few cases in life do I do that on purpose! What I did try to do was give this a "chocolate covered" feel, so when I drew around the jug with a brown, it was SUPPOSED to look Chocolate Covered. Instead it looks like I forgot to take coloring 101 in Kindergarten. Oh, well, a little chocolate spilled over the edge never hurt anyone. : )
Thanks for coming by today!
