THE CHALLENGE #8

THE CHALLENGE #8


Here is my Announcement:
I am Super Excited to be joining Lesley Croghan 
at THE CHALLENGE!
I have always loved her sketches, 
and I admire her support of the card making and crafting community.
She is so instrumental in so many challenges I LOVE.
So very pleased to work with her!

The wonderfully easy sketches of THE CHALLENGE, 
are the best and..
I get INSPIRED right away!
I am also so honored to team up in the inspiration with
these wonderful, fun, and vibrantly creative ladies!

- Lori Tecler of Inking Aloud
 - Jeanne Jachna of A Kept Life -

Wow, a whole bunch of Awesomeness is coming your way!
What can I say, this sketch just hit me with a --
"I know exactly what to do!"

I turned to my Clearly Besotted!

I kept true to the sketch  -as I LOVE IT - 
I chose to use a 3 color scheme: creme yellow, lavender and sage green
My FAVE lately is to add copics, mini pearls, and "popping" up an element on my card.
I used LIl' Inkers stitched Rectangles to get my mat shape, then I trimmed it down to fit.
 I layered the same printed papers inside the negative space as I placed on the card front.
I inked the stems in sage green and the blooms in lavender.
Another stamp of the lavender, fussy cut, and popped it up with double sided foam tape
and colored with copics.  The I added mini pearls I also colored with copic!



WOW, this was a TON of fun, and I think really turned out 
UNIQUE and gorgeous!
so Have a FABULOUS day!

I hope you are inspired, and I see your lovely creations in the gallery at The Challenge!
