it's hard to believe it's been a month
since our first sketch challenge over at
Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge
This month we are using the featured sketch,
plus making a coordinating bookmark.
I've used the darling Lilith from TPS Lil Lolitas range, doesn't she have a look that says it all, lol, I love her!! K & Co. paper, gorgeous lace and mesh from TPS and Prima flowers, look at how they loaded them up with stamen, soooo dreamy!!!
Now here's where I have attempted to incorporate sarcasm into my papercrafting by using an old school Stampin' Up "Oh Happy Day!" sentiment, doesn't she look thrilled, heehee!! The bottom border, shaped with a ek success punch onto kraft then distressed in Brushed Curdoroy, is popped up with foam mounts and I've placed flowers round the shape to nestle the pullout bookmark into place.
Lilith was stamped onto Gina K cardstock and coloured with black prisma pencil, our running challenge set by Kellie for us Pink Ladies to spark our mojo is to colour our images in black and white only. Well, I must say, I love the effect, quite neat. I couldn't resist just a hint of blue in her eyes and on her roses, because to me, she looks a little bummed out, the colour matched her vibe I think. I added some highlights with a white Sakura jelly pen and added a touch of Diamond Stickles to the dress, shoes and skull.
So you'd like to join in but don't have any Lil Lolitas (((yet)))??? Well, that's okay, because our monthly challenge allows you to use any range of stamp that is presently sold at Tickled Pink Stamps, head on over HERE to see the list of brands. And nope, doesn't have to be purchased from TPS to play in our challenges!!
