CardPatterns challenge


Great sketch this week at CardPatterns. They just keep coming up with the cutest sketches!

I got my CTMH Summer Idea Book and Stamp of the Month Autoship earlier this week. Lots of cool new papers and stamps and some new alterable things as well!! So I'll be showing a sneak peek here and there to whet your appetite for upcoming new things starting in May!

This is the May SOM, called "Be Yourself." It has 8 images of ladies doing a variety of things. From running to dancing with different sentiments to go with them. This is a really cute set!

I flipped the sketch 90 degrees. I used the STMH Stardust paper pack since my order of new paper isn't here yet! I used Nestabilities Labels Four, then stamped the lady in Black ink. The top of her dress is paper pieced. I cut tiny pieces of Sunny Yellow and Star Spangled Blue Sassy Strands to do the layers on her dress. As soon as I saw the dress, it reminded me of the 20's era Flapper dresses and I knew I had to use Sassy Strands on it! I also used my new EK Success punch Embossed Scallop and sponged the edges in Bamboo ink for added definition. I will be duplicating this 5 more times for our Team SOM swap...I think I may lose my mind cutting and attaching all those tiny pieces of Sassy Strands!

Neat card - love the skirt of the dress!!! That must have been some tedious work. Nice job with the sketch. Thanks for playing along with us again.
