You Add Color To My Life–SSSC #265


Hi, everyone, it’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I totally LOVE this sketch—Karen has done it again!!


I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then dry embossed another piece of Sweet Tooth card stock with MPD Petal Circles Stencil, added some Black Licorice card stock “piping” and popped it up on foam mounting tape. Next I stamped some images from Abstract Art on Sweet Tooth card stock with Orange Zest dye ink, Berrylicious dye ink, Daffodil dye ink, and Cranberry Cocktail dye ink, cut it out with Pierced Square STAX Die-namics and popped it up, as well, overstamped with a sentiment from LLD Stay Tuned and Black Licorice dye ink. These colors matched some striped paper I’d already created with Plaid Builder Background so I popped up a strip of that and added a brush from Paint Brushes Die-namics to continue the theme. It was made with Orange Fizz card stock, Berrylicious card stock, and Ranger Silver Foil card stock and also popped up on foam. To finish off I added some enamel dots.


A sentiment from LJD Cheerful Blessings was stamped on the inside.


And that’s it from me! be sure to check out the rest of the design team’s projects and we hope you’ll play along! Thanks for stopping by today! See you soon!
