So, a few months ago, I signed up for several swaps all in one night. I think the total was 6 different swaps - Inkadinkadoo, Stampin' Up, Stamping Bella, 3 Recipe Swaps - I wasn't worried about getting behind on these swaps because some of them aren't even due until August and I signed up in April! Well, you saw the Stampin' Up Swaps I did HERE and the Stamping Bella Swaps are HERE and HERE; I just finished the Inkadinkadoo Swaps Sunday night and I must say, I am right proud of myself. Not only did I complete the requirements of my swap, but I used the Friday's sketch challenge #5 from the girls over at FRIDAY SKETCHERS!
I killed two birds with one stone...Here's my card...
My color palat was not one I would've originally put together. I got a randomly generated combo from THIS AMAZING SITE! I love how it turned out! The set I used is called "Birds Galore" and I have come to adore it. To ink up the main image, I used my Bravo Burgandy ink pad and then hilighted the leaves a little with my Green Galore Marker. After I stamped the image, I colored a couple white spaces using my Tempting Turquoise marker. My favorite part of the card... the upper right corner - a cardstock called Black Magic by Core'dinations courtesy of my lovely momma! (*Thanks Mom*)
The next card I want to share with you is another sketch from the Friday Sketchers girls... Sketch #4...
I changed it up a little bit, but for the most part, I kept in line with the sketch. Did you see the Crystal Effects I put on the wine glasses & wine bottle? I just love this card! Oh, and did you catch the use of my new NESTABILITIES??? This girl has got to find more time to play with all her new toys! I had so much fun making this card!
Finally, I want to share a recent project I tried with you. I made my girl a camisol tee with a bella image on it! I was so proud after I finished it... it was somewhere around 4PM and I let her - no, I encouraged her to change her clothes! (You must know that my girlie girl changes her outfits more in one day than I even think about blinking my eyes in a week! Okay, slight exaggeration, but still... it's a lot). If I were to do this again, I would color it differently with lighter colors, but she LOVED it!
That's all I've got for you tonight girls... Have a good one... I'll be back as soon as I can!
