Taylored Expressions sketch challenge

Happy Saturday everyone! It's a beautiful July summer day here in PA! Good thing because I have a family reunion to go today!

So, Thursday I hinted that there was something new coming to The Hybrid Chick - today (hopefully!) all will be revealed. So keep checking over there for the announcement....

I played along with Taylored Expressions sketch challenge #121. Here is their sketch:


The Sketch Crew over there came up with some really beautiful and unique cards based on the sketch. I went a more whimsical route.

Supplies: Happyland digital kit by Madame Wing, Staples double sided matte presentation paper, pop dots, Stampendous! glitter on the wings, Stampin' Up! Embosslits Beautiful wings die, hello stamp from SU! Hello again set, SU! Pixie Pink and Silver metallic inks

My supply of stamps are very limited as I am just starting out. I joined a monthly Stampin' Up! card club which met from last September until June of this year. It was a lot of fun and a great way to be introduced into stamping. I mostly stocked up on tools - punches, inks, sizzlits, etc. Now I wish I had purchased more stamps!!

This card is actually only the very second time I used one of my stamps and ink here at home. I was hesitant to break out the stamps and get them dirty. LOL

I can already see why stamping is addictive - you want more and more choices to use to create! And I'm with Sharyn - I need some Copic markers now!
