Simply Betty Sketch

Did you know that Simply Betty Stamps has a sketch challenge going on right now? And that the prize is to be the August Guest Designer??? Now that is a prize I really want to win! Here’s the sketch:

And here’s my card:

Rio-Sketch-1

I’m in the mood for green, I guess! I started off with my fabulous Rio stamp, and inked her up in Ice Jade from Color Box (one of my fave inky colors eva!). Then, using my colored pencils, I used various shades of green to complete her. Here’s a close up.

Rio-Sketch-2

I like her as a pretty zombie…don’t you? I’m actually kind of inspired to do more monochromatic Rios. I already stamped her out in some other colors. Hmmm…I can even use one for the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge this week! Let’s just see if I have time… But back to this card!

Rio-Sketch-3

In keeping with the green thing I had goin’ on with Rio, I chose various scraps I had to finish the card up using funky cardstock in all assorted greens. And a single rhinestone to top it all off!

I really like this sketch. I am going to try and use it again. Maybe with another of my funky colored Rios or perhaps Christian! We’ll see… have an inspiring day!!!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
