Well, happy Wednesday! Today REVERSE CONFETTI is sponsoring the newest sketch over at FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES (#200). A bunch of the Confetti Crew girls are participating as well and sharing their creations using the new sketch. Take a look at it:
This sketch definitely took me out of my comfort zone as y'all know I am a member of the "more is more" club with lots of layers and embellishments on my cards and projects.
With only the two panels, I thought it would be fun to at least dress them up with a cut bumblebee from THE BUZZ stamp set from REVERSE CONFETTI. I brushed the dust off my Copics and colored him (I've still got it, he turned out pretty darn good!), and then die cut him using the coordinating THE BUZZ Confetti Cuts. I also stamped the sentiment and little "beeline" from the same stamp set. The scallop border between the two panels (I just couldn't leave it plain) is from the smaller edge of the DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cuts. I just had to add a few sequins for a little more sparkle and it was complete!
We hope y'all get a chance to play along with this super EASY sketch! Head on over the REVERSE CONFETTI BLOG for a link list of all the Confetti Crew's creations. Then check out more info and link your project over on the FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES BLOG.
SUSIE Q-TIP: I've said this before, but sometimes I cheat. Yes, after stamping an image that may have a large solid black area, I use a black Copic, or fine-liner pen to "fill in" or retouch to give it more even coverage where the stamp may not have inked so solidly.
