The Pink Elephant Challenge #41

Hey Pink Elephant fans! It's Monday and you all know what that means!
Another super fun challenge!

This week is a sketch challenge by our own Lori Boyd!!

Here is my interpretation:



I started with a round card like the sketch, but it drifted! lol You can still see the sketch though. I didn't like my little round card because it felt too heavy. I shouldn't have used such a large image...totally my fault. But, by adding it to a regular shaped card, I felt it balanced a whole lot more. I like having the white background and I felt that it still kept the integrity of the sketch.
I colored this sweet CCDesigns iimage with Copics and added white gel pen polka dots and accents. It is hard to see in the photo (bad light and had to take a straight on shot), but her bangs are popped up. I just stamped them a second time and cut them out and used foam tape to attach them. I used the Autumn Type embossing folder for the circle and the white background. I stamped the words using two different alpha stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Be sure to stop by TPE to see what the other designers created this week!

How's it going?

I just found your blog and I think it's great. I like reading personal blogs, and I find it a lot better than most other categories. Listen, I have a blog myself that provides inspiration and guidance to millions of people around the world. I would like us to do a link exchange and spread some traffic around. Let me know what you think.
