Isn't he adorable? I absolutely love this week's As You See It Challenges Sketch! Amanda is so creative!!
I hope you will take a creative break this weekend and give this sketch a try. I know you'll enjoy it!
- You know what I like best about Stampin' Blendabilities markers? It's that you can stamp the image in a water based ink that is so easy to clean off your stamps, and you can work right on Whisper White cardstock without having the slightly yellowed tint of the watercolour paper. I used the Melon Mambo Stampin' Blendabilities Assortment and the Skin Tone Assortment for the Koala. The Skin Tone Assortment only really has a dark and medium tone of brown and I was wondering what to use for the lightest tone since the rest are really pinky, when I remembered, "Doh! I just ordered the Crumb Cake Assortment, so I used the lightest tone from that and it worked great!
- I wanted the word YOU to pop out so I stamped the Koala again in Old Olive and cut out the YOU from the image in a flag, matted it in Old Olive cardstock and Voila!
- The fringe scissors came in handy for the grass fringe on the end of the bottom panel. How unique is that element? Way to go, Amanda!
- I think my favourite DSP from this catalogue so far is Park Lane, as you can tell from the frequency with which I use it! This is the back side of the Daffodil Delight micro-polka dots that I used yesterday.
