Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #40

This week's sketch from Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge was a tricky one for me. I'm so used to doing squares/rectangles evenly and so to do this one cockeyed was HARD!!! I did manage though and was pleased with how both of them turned out. I know!!!! I did 2!!!!!!


This card was done using my new set Upsy Daisy and Best Yet. I colored my image with my markers (Old Olive, Really Rust and Tangerine Tango) using my aquapainters and then squirted a little water on it using my new mini mister from Ranger (love this!). I had run my old olive through the Argyle cuttlebug and then daubed some chocolate chip over it. I mounted it on chocolate chip cardstock and then confetti cream. Loved this effect of the watercoloring although I think I need to mist a little further away from it next time.

This next card is using a ETA: Sorry, Inky Antics (not Lockhart) stamp that I won guessing Jane's baby pool. It's called Enjoying Good Things (10764J) and I had fun with some new Crate Paper-Water Lilies from the Mia Collection that I bought on a little shopping trip while I was in MD and went to a stamp store (The Queen's Ink) and a scrapbook store which I can't remember the name of. I got to visit with some friends, Leigh and Toni, laughed hard and ate some yummy crabcakes!

On the inside of my card it says "hot stuff" which is an inside joke in the office with a couple girls. The little question on the front I did in Word.

Join in the fun this week and post to Mary's Jo's post or SCS with keyword TSSC40. Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
