New Elzybells Challenges

Another Excuse To Stamp!

OK...I really don't need an excuse to stamp...I do it cause I LOVE IT! Everyone knows how much I love challenges...right?! Well....when I found some a challenge by the Design Team over on the Elzybells Blog...I jumped right on it.

Here's sketch challenge #1:

What an awesome sketch! Think of all the things you can do with it. I print off my favorite sketches and keep them handy in a folder. This one's going in that folder :)

I grabbed my Elzybells stamps and came up with this:

And on the inside:

Once again I used the clear set from Elzybells called Everyday Greetings. Since the words "are" and "shopping" weren't in that set...I just inked up letters from other words and spelled them out. Git-er-done :)

Pretty much you can see what I did on the card. Chalk inks around the edges of layers. Main image is popped up on dimensionals. Coloring done with Prismacolor and Copic Markers. The stamp on the inside of card has a little sparkle from my Spica GlitterPen.

Bazzill Textured cardstock, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Colorbok Patterened Paper

Hi Lori, absolutely love your Elzybells card, that little girl is coloured to perfection and your papers are gorgeous. I didn't know they'd put up a sketch thanks for the heads up on that. I just got my new order of Elzybells stamps the other day and can't wait to use them. You should definitely email your card to Elizabeth, she'll love it!!! Hugs Chris x
