Card Positioning System’s Sketch #256 with Bombshell Stamps!

Good Sunday morning to you! Today, I am very happy to share a card I made for Card Positioning System’s Sketch #256. This sketch is being sponsored by Bombshell Stamps, so some of the DT gals were asked to play along. Here’s my card.

And here is the original sketch.

I changed it around a wee bit…but that’s the fun part of doing a sketch challenge, right? Taking the original and giving it your own twist?

For this card, I used Homeward Bound and Mermaid Treasure from Bombshell Stamps, of course. I colored the images using both my watercolor markers and my Copics. If you can click on this, or any of my other photos, you will see the image bigger.

I used foam dots to pop up the mermaid and the “Homeward Bound” banner. I also used my beloved Mini Punchinella stencil from the Crafter’s Workshop for the circles in the background.

I also added a layer of Glossy Accents to my mermaid’s tail, to make it look wet. I had a lot of fun with this sketch, even though it was a bit of a struggle for me at first. I am thrilled with the end result though. Some of the other Bombshell Gals played along with this sketch as well. Here are the links to their blogs.
Stop by and give them some love! Also, be sure to check out the deets on the CPS Sketch HERE. And of course, here is the link to the Bombshell Blog. Its always great for you to visit us there! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
