Sketch Challenge 27: Paint!



**Post 3 of 3 for today!**
Here we are at another Limelight Sketch and Product challenge!! Can you believe how much is going on today? We have a brand new product release (Pink Cat Studio's Fairy Friends stamp set!), the back to school projects, AND a sketch challenge! What a FUN day!!! I created my card for one of the boys in our youth group. Teenage boys love glitter and rhinestones, right? And cupcakes? Well, YES. They DO love cupcakes. Ha. ;)

Do you see that PRETTY shimmer on my cupcake?? It's the NEW Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz! I didn't even have to color my image. The paint took care of color AND sparkle in one easy step. Love that! :)

Stamps: Cupcake Numbers Perfectly Clear Set (Stampendous). Paper: Awesome Aqua (WorldWin double-sided), Cupcake Invitation, Basic Black, Old Olive, GP White. Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black, Taken With Teal. Accessories: Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz, Pixie Dust Shimmerz (on the candle flames), Island Lagoon Rhinestones, Circle Punches.


The Details:
**Use the sketch above and dress it up with PAINT!! Shimmerz, watercolors, craft paint...whatever ya got!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC027
**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on this post by Sunday, August 9, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).

How cute is that?!? Love it Mandy...it's been a busy summer, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.... Maybe I'll start by trying to think of something fantastic for this sketch!

This was a great sketch! I don't have any paint I used Copics and made it glisten by embossing it with Clear EP. Here is mine:

Here's my card, Mandy! I somehow forgot about the paint in my excitement to use my new Unity stamp. I did use Copics for the bud...hope this counts...

I'm off to check out the new birdie Unity stamps. Thanks again for the sentiment and those StarWars stamps on the package have gone into my stash!!! Nothing wasted

This is my first time participating. It was so much fun. Thank you Mandy! I plan to do many more. Here is mine. I used celery shimmerz on the leaves and grass and coffee shimmerz on the coconuts.
