Sketchy Start

It's Monday! The first Monday of 2012, and it is already starting out sketchy on the Outlines Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is to make a card using the sketch provided. Make sure you play along with us this week for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from the Outlines Rubber Stamp Company.

We were provided with the following sketch:

I proceeded as follows:

I stamped the Outlines image of "Tall Presents" F-810 onto X-Press It cardstock with Marvy black dye ink and colored with Copic markers. I highlighted some of the stars and dots with Crystal Stickles. I then rounded two of the corners of this image panel with a corner rounder punch.

Then, I stamped the Outlines image of "Star Strip" E-561 with Marvy black dye ink onto another piece of X-Press It cardstock. I colored with Copic markers and highlighted with Crystal Stickles. Then, I cut along the scalloped portion of the image.

I stamped the Outlines sentiment "Tiny Celebrate Your Day" (AA-832) onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored over it with a Copic marker and placed as if it were a package in the stack.

Patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs was used for the layers of this card, along with white cardstock and electric blue cardstock. One of the layers was run through the Cuttlebug with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. All layers were slightly sponged with Distress It Tumbled Glass ink.

The finishing touches to this card include sheer white ribbon, Blossom Light Pink Baker's Twine, pink curling ribbon, and a shiny blue star brad.
