Ink Road Stamps Women Belong in All Places for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Hi and welcome today.  I am using my Ink Road Stamps RBG set for the first time!  I wanted this set so bad and never got around to using it until now. I found the perfect lacey stickers to accent the RBG image. 

Here's the sketch.  It is so versatile.  

Here is a close up of my coloring on Ruth. I added liquid pearls on the earrings and diamond glaze on the glasses.

I had so much fun with this image and sketch that I created several versions.  I experimented with different lace stickers, die cuts, sentiments and alcohol markers.

Another close up of coloring.  This one seems to have more warmth.

Creative Memories Fabulous Power Palette with Sketches in Thyme

Today's layout for Sketches in Thyme  is from my last day at Island Exodus in Jamaica.  I took lots of photos with some of my favorite women.  I used some old Creative Memories papers and pieces from the Fabulous power palette.  I am getting really close to using up this collection, that makes me happy.

Here's the sketch:

The sentiment is a transparent sticker.  I used paper flowers and paper ribbon from the collection as well.

I free handed the edging and used scraps for the journal strips.

Stampin Up 3 Cheers for you! for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Welcome to my blog today and my lastest design team project for Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge.  I have a card where I upcycle several elements.  Besides upcycling, I already had the Cricut cut in my stash.  And, I found this great tag in my tag stash. I think it really works.

Here is the sketch:

I tag was hard plastic. I also had the negative die cut I used for the frame. I used two beverage themed Stampin Up stamp sets.

The bling is also reused vintage sequin/beads from a creative reuse store.

Here's a side view.  You can really see the dimension of the tag and beads here.

Ink Road Stamps Don't Poke the Dragon with Distress inks for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Today's card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge was super fun to make.  I really wanted to use my some of my latest stamps.  I used two different dragon sets.  I loved the dragon's eye from one set with the sentiment from another.

Here's the sketch from Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge.  I reversed the sentiment and image because of the direction the dragon's eye faced.

I began this project by stamping and embossing the sentiment and image.  I then used various Distress inks to create a mixed green background.  I added strips of gorgeous foil papers to the edges. The final touch was a black lace ribbon.
