Try It Out Tuesday #14 - Sketchy Colors

Hello and welcome to Try it out Tuesday #14 from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week design team leader Suzanne Dean challenged us to make a card using a sketch challenge AND a color challenge! The sketch is above, and the colors are pink, chocolate and cream. Yummy!! Here is my creation:

I chose to use Alicia for my project, she was just calling to me with this color combination! I like the sketch Suzanne created a lot, it works well for the size of this adorable Anki's Sweethearts images. Did you know that there is a "bundle" of these images - where if you purchase all 10 together in the bundle you save $16.50?? That's like getting 2.5 stamps for free!! Don't you love free?

I stamped Alicia with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored her with Copic markers and added some highlights using the white gel pen {must have!}. I used Petite Oval Nestabilities to cut her out and create some mats for the main image {it's on dimensionals}. After she was all set in place on my card I went back over the "fuzzy" areas of her cape using a Quickie Glue pen and then added some white Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock. So she really has a fuzzy winter cape! I love it! Chocolate brads in the upper right corner finish it off!

You can see all the TIOT projects on the SCACD store blog, or on everyone's individual blogs {links on my left sidebar}. If you upload your projects, use the keyword TIOT so we can find them all!

Thanks for stopping by today! It is also Twinkling Tuesday, but I am not participating due to being on vacation! Check out the blogs of the other Twinklettes though, I'm sure they have some great projects to share with this week's sketch! Today's keyword for that challenge is MTTSC18.
