Sookie just wants to have fun with TPS Monthly Challenges


Hello my lovelies,
how has your day been treating you, kindly I hope.
Well, as it happens, it is time for a new sketch over at
Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge
This is a challenge where you get to use the sketch provided along with ANY IMAGE that is sold at Tickled Pink, so it could be a Lil Lolita, a Magnolia, Kraftin' Kimmie, Sweet November, etc. HERE is the link to the store
to check out your company options, and no, it is not required that you buy/bought it from Tickled Pink Stamps, lol, but your image DOES have to be from a company that she carries in store.

I hope you will stop by the TPS Monthly blog to check out the sketch and samples this month, we have an AMAZING prize on offer, I wish I could win it, lol. The prize this month is the entire new release of Lil' Lolitas, The Fashionette Collection, woohoohoo!! You gotta be in it to win it, so please do head over!! Once again, HERE is the link :)

I tried to give Sookie a Cyndi Lauper overhaul as I LOVE me some Cyndi. You know her name is Cynthia Ann Stephanie Lauper and my name is Stephanie Ann, yeeeheeeheee!!! And I remember this one particular instance from school when a group of "jocks" were attempting to make fun of me (me: weird, simi-freaky, odd girl) and one of them said, "Hey, don't make fun of Cyndi Lauper," I thought that was hysterical and was also pretty well flattered too, lol. (RIP Koury) Okay okay, enough reminiscing, back to the card!!

Sookie is coloured in Prisma color pencils, yes, I am going through a pencil phase, she is also smooched in Gold Lame in some spots, then gold Stickles was added, her outfit was stickled in Diamond, her necklaces dotted with Liquid Pearls, and her hair highlighted with a white Sakura gel pen, shadowed around her with chalk then buffed it with baby oil, distressed the outer edges with Vintage Photo. Papers are K & Co. and scenic route, toole and flowers from stash, pearl stamen and strung pearls from Michaels, lace from Hobby Lobby, and the punch is by Fiskars.

And here's one where she twinkles.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will get a chance to check out the challenge this month, it's a good'un!!

******edited to add pertinent details left out in a whirlwind of sleepiness: Tickled Pink Stamps is one of many fabulous componies sponsoring Color Throwdowns 100th challenge and we thought it would be fun for us girls at TPS to try and use the colours too, sort of celebrating along with them, and here's that colour swatch for you:

And guess what else I left out... The sketch!!! My brilliance is alarming...

Okay, I hope that fixes things up right and proper.
Until next time, my ladies,
have a great weekend!!

Oh Stephanne! You crack me up with your stories!! lol! Well, I definitely love this image and how you've done her up! For sure looks like a Stephanne Lauper, oh I mean, Cyndi Lauper .. lol! ;) GORGEOUS work as always and funny thing ... I just finished my upcoming card and decided to play with tulle on it also! lol! Of course it's not whipper snapper creative like yours ... since my tulle always comes out looking pretty frumpy .. but, it was the thing that I had decided was the only thing that fit. hehe! Okay, well Sookie looks like she's enjoying herself singing karaoke or some sort on your BEAUTIFUL creation. Probably happy as heck being on something that YOU made!!! :) As always, I love it!!!

Big Hugs to You!

Hi Stephanne, love your card hun, gorgeous colouring and I so want some tulle but don't know where to get any lol, thanks for your lovely comments, hugs Liz xx

Handmade with Love said...

Oh I loved your Cyndi Lauper comments, takes me right back to the eighties! The card is fantastic as usual, you are so talented! I can't believe you guys have three month summers from school! I thought that that two months was quite long enough to keep the little ones entertained, most schools here only have six weeks! I hope you are enjoying yourselves and that the weather is being kind to you! Tracey x
