Sketch 15 Challenge at STAMPlorations

Hi Everyone,

we have another sketch for you here at STAMPlorations

Again lots of scope here … this sketch challenge will run until 18th July and the winner will be announced 20th July.

The month of July is a sort of one large extended Birthday Celebration, so many people I know celebrate their birthday this month. If you feel like joining the party, do join us for this and any of the July Challenges, it will make our month.

For this sketch challenge we are joined by Monika Reeck from Creative with Monika. Yes, there are quite a few of us Monikas floating about in Blogland, even I get a bit confused at times …. 😀

Here is my celebratory DT piece:

Artsy Birthday


To create this beauty I simply stamped the large brush stroke from the Celebrate Artsy Set in Rose Red, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun (all Stampin’Up!), before stamping the SKETCHED Birthday Cake and sentiment (VIGNETTE Celebrate Artsy) in black (Memento). I then highlighted some elements of the cake using Cocktail Pink, Antique Pink and Cool Grey 2 & 3, added a Pastel Blue (all Promarkers) shadow, layered as shown and finished off with some glitter glue on the candles. You can find my craft along video tutorial here.

This card is very easy to make and best of all … no great colouring skills needed!!!

Hope that my friend Sue will like this … She’s just ordered all the new July sets and is after ideas …

If you want more ideas too, pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog and have a look at the beauties my Teamies have created for this challenge.

Remember if you enter all 3 challenges in a month, you’ll be in with a chance to win a fabulous prize courtesy of our sister shop All About Scrapping.

Good Luck and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂
