So a couple of weeks ago I discovered a fun little Challenge website. I was looking for digi images and came across this great website it is http://skdigis.blogspot.com/. I then started looking around her blog and found this: http://sketchyfriday.blogspot.com/. Score. I love the digi stamps and love a great little sketch challenge. Here is the photo of the sketch challenge:
The rules were pretty simple - just create a project following the sketch.
So I bought this cut cupcake for a very very special person. My Husband's Grandma - She will be turning 100 on Saturday. I'm so excited. I love Grandma just like she was my own. My daughter loves her GREAT GRANDMA too and is super excited about her party on Saturday. I went to the store just to buy a quick card and I'll tell you nothing jumped out at me. So then I figured I'd go ahead and play along with the great little challenge.
The card is actually an easel card - measure 6x6. I wanted to make it larger for Grandma - as her eye site is a little weak.
I printed the birthday cake onto white smooth card stock made for coloring w/ alochol inks. I used my Spectrum Noir markers.
I sized the image for printing to be about 3" and used a circle scallop from Arts Philosophy cartridge sized at 3 3/4" - can I say I also figured out how to use the CENTER point button on my expression? Well I did figure it out pretty quickly and looks pretty good to me on the image.
I then used some Echo Park paper I had - I love the green and the pink. The ribbon is from American Craft. The buttons were from my stash. I added a few Rhinestones, and some stickles.
I think this turned out really pretty - and really hope she loves it.
Have a great day and
