The Pink Elephant Challenge #16

Hey Everyone!!

It's time for another fun challenge at The Pink Elephant! This week is a sketch challenge made by your's truly!! I really love this sketch and hope you all will too! I think it is one that can be used to make a very elaborate card or a simple one.

Here is the card that I made.

It is a pretty simple one, but I think it is really fun!! I finally got a chance to ink one of my Wild Sprout images from The Greeting Farm!! This is Dahlia...isn't she sweet? She has two other sisters that are begging to be inked, so watch this space for them soon! I colored her with Prismacolor Pencils/Gamsol. The rest is pretty straightforward. Background embossed, cut circle with my Fiskars circle cutter and embossed, stamped sentiment on strip and attached to card. I added Dahlia on pop dots. Finally, I punched flowes and added dimension with a stylus, layered them and added a tiny rhinestone to the center of each.

Materials: PAPER: Colormates-Luscious Lime, Turqoise, Perfect Plum (WorldWin) STAMPS: Dahlia Wild Sprout, Hope & Grace Sentiment (The Greeting Farm) INK: Versafine-Onyx Black (Tsukineko), Colorbox Fluid Chalk-Lime, Plum (Clearsnap) OTHER: Embossing Folders-Swiss Dots, Bloom Dots (ProvoCraft), Circle Cutter (Fiskars), Baby Blooms punch (McGill), Rhinestones (Kaisercraft), Pop Dots

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to head over to The Pink Elephant and see what all the other fabulous design team members did this week. Oh...and don't forget to play along!!!
Have a creatively wonderful week!!
