Hello everyone! I'm back with another challenge entry. Today, it's the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Sketch Challenge #64. The guidelines for this challenge: Create a card or layout based on the sketch provided. Peachy Keen Stamps are not required for this challenge, but if you've got them we looooove seeing how you create with them! Project must be new and must include basic elements and layout from the sketch (feel free to flip anything).
Here's the sketch:
And here is my entry:
The solid black and the solid white cardstock are from Recollections. The blue snowflake patterned paper is from the Recollections ~ Holly Jolly paper pad. The two black pieces are cut with the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Die. The border is stamped with the My Creative Time ~ XL Label Borders stamp set. I embossed the snowflakes with Versamark ~ Watermark Ink and white ~ Stampendous embossing powder.
The super cute penguins are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Faceless Christmas Heads and their faces are from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Winter Wonderland Face Assortment. I colored them in with Prismacolor ~ pencils and blended it with Odorless Mineral Spirits. In case you want to see the before and after of what that looks like...here is a picture:
The boy penguin on the left is done with the Prismacolor ~ pencils only. The girl penguin on the right is colored and then blended with the Odorless Mineral Spirits. Don't you just love the difference??? The color is so much more vibrant.
The blue patterned background is punched with the Martha Stewart ~ Drippy Goo punch at the bottom to look a little like icicles. In the center is a starburt and stitched circle cut with dies from the My Creative Time ~ Build A Banner Kit. In the center and on the white strip is the cutest little sentiment "Love You..." from the My Creative Time ~ This & That stamp set. I added some white dots to the tips of the starburst with a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll pen. And I added a few little gems with my Imaginisce ~ I-Rock tool. Oh, and I can't forget about the cute little bow for the girl penguin, it's from The Twinery ~ Caribbean twine.
Well, that's it for today. Aren't they are just soooo cute! I'm gonna need to get a second job just to keep buying Peachy Keen Stamps....I LOVE THEM!!!! See you back here soon with an awesome patriotic card to celebrate all of our veterans. Have a great day!
