Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #18



Well it has been a fairly busy day today, even though I didn't create my VSN cards today .... it still takes time doing all the other bits and pieces associated with the event. I finally got a change to sit down to create my card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge this afternoon .... but then I had to leave it as we were due at my Sister in Law's for dinner .... as I am home now I can finally upload it!

For todays sketch I went with Tiffany from Rubber Romance ..... I love these stamps ... I don't think I have used this one before. I decided to stamp her using chocolate chip ink as I didn't really want to have a black umbrella ...... I thought brown would make a nice change ... I found this dot paper in with my papers so that helped decide what colors to use to color the raincoat! After stamping out the image I cut it out using my scallop circle punch and layered it to artichoke & choc chip circles cut using the cricut.

I added paper piercing around the edges and corners of the rose red card, and the verse is one I received recently from my VSN secret sis :)

Recipe:
Stamps: Tiffany - Rubber Romance; Girlfriends Verse - Kolette Hall
Paper: Rose Red; Always Artichoke; Choc Chip - Stampin' Up; White; Joyful Dots DP - All My Memories
Other: Chocolate Chip SU Ink; Pink Brads; Scallop Circle Punch; George Cricut Cartridge; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool; Brown Grosgrain Ribbon
