Scrapmaster’s Paradise Color Combo (DT Call)

Good early morning (or, like me, late night!) to all you queenies!

I am very excited to be putting up my first entry for SPCC challenge.  This is also the first in a series of entries in order to apply for a DT spot over there. (yeay!)

The Combo:


You know, Baja Breeze looked a little more turquois before. :)

I'm excited to share this with you for two reasons: One, I colored this image with colored pencils which I NEVER do.  I am pretty much copic/watercolor all the way but, I am very happy with the results.  And two: I got a chance to use some papers from SEI that I have been dying to use – and used them in a way that I didn’t expect when I bought them.

So, no more waiting, here we are:



She’s so cute, right?  I am very happy with this card shape as well.  The overhang allows you to use two patterned papers behind the main image – gives a lot of depth methinks. Here is the sketch I used (I modified it a little):


Stamp: Bugaboo (Sugar and Spice set) | Cardstock: BBP (purple cardbase), DCWV “Glitter Stack” (Purple Scallop Rectangle), American Crafts (Pearlized Turquois) | DSP: SEI (Couture) | Spellbinders (Rectangles – Large, Scalloped Rectangles) | Ribbon: RibbonFX | Stickers: K Marcella (Monkey Around Girl)


Entered in:

Sweet Stampin: Babies or Little Ones

Glitter Geeks: Sketch

Tuesday Throwdown: Non-stamped Sentiment

Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo: Color Combo (DT submission)
