Camilla's Spoon full Sketch

Hello - today is Tuesday and time for a new Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. And this week the very talented Camilla has a beautiful sketch.




I started with one of the adorable Rachelle Anne Miller stamps, this is "Lily & Milo - For You" that is colored with my Copics and Spica Glitter Pens. A light pink card stock is used for the base, with a scrap of pink and white pattern paper. (sorry the name is cut off so I don't know what it is) Now for the scallops I remembered the Basic Grey "Just the Edge" pieces I have had forever. I used one of the larger scallops and placed them on top and bottom following the sketch. For the circle I used a large Basic Grey Flower stacked with four more misc. flowers. The center is a Martha Steward adhesive pearl. Looked so pretty I put them on the tips of each scallop as well. Now when I went to put my image on the card I was running out of space, so I got rid of the mat I had planned and just edged the image with a pink Copic marker to give the appearance of a mat. But I still had no room for the two smaller circles on the bottom corner. So instead I added two Quickutz flourishes instead. This is a wonderful sketch and remember you can use any image you would like, so why not pop on over to the A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge and give it a try. This week I donated a brand new Rachelle Anne Miller stamp and some flowers. While there take a look at all of the other DT cards, wow they are wonderful!






My second card today is for this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge and it was a must last night. As I got a envelope yesterday from my dear sweet friend, and fellow Spoon DT, Nikki . She saw my post last week about how much I treasure my Hanglar images sent to me by friends and sent me some new images to play with! Well I had to wait almost 3 hours before I could color one up! Isn't she adorable, as soon as I saw her I thought of one of my vintage stamp sets from Oxford Impressions. I have a few of these wonderful vintage photograph sets and sadly they are dusty from not being used much, well I pulled them out and decided that this little one needed some lounge chairs to enjoy the beach. The sentiment is also from that set. I stamped them with my Brilliance Graphite Black ink. Now I am wishing I had done it in a blue color... sigh.

I cut the Hanglar Girl with my Nestibilities and matted with a large cut red card stock. The Paper is another scrap, matted with a piece of yellow card stock. I doodled around everything and then just for some fun added the four buttons. Fun... I think I might dust off the other sets and mix them with my new favorites more often, kind of a neat look!


Today is a busy day, lots of little things on my list to check off. Hope to catch up on some blogs at some point today too, missed a lot through the weekend so looking forward to seeing everyone. Hope you have a great Tuesday planned and have time to get inky!
