Up and Away with More Challenges

Dana and I stamped some more today and I was able to complete a few more challenges for the Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash.

Of course you know how much I LOVE a sketch challenge so I started with Laura's sketch challenge, TEBBLF, and chose my image to suit the sketch. I used the balloon from The Places You'll Go...I just love this entire set!!! I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White, coloured it with copics and cut it out with rectangle Nestabilities. As I was colouring I realized it would be perfect for Dawn's paper tole challenge, TEBBDE, so I popped the layers several times on foam tape for lots of dimension. I added liquid applique to make the clouds all fluffy and pretty.

The colours I used are from Charmaine's colour challenge, TEBBCI, Prism Intense Kiwi, Sunflowers Medium and Nautical Blue Light. I also added some Cosmo Cricket Early Bird patterned paper to the mix. I used my new Martha border punch (LOVE it...just picked it up today!!) on the yellow polka dot paper. The white card base is 5.25 inches square. I finished the card with some baby blue twill and made the cute little bow with my Bow Easy.

There are so many fabulous creations for all the birthday bash challenges over on the SASI blog. You have until Wednesday night at midnight to link your creations to their respective challenges for a chance to win a Taylored Expressions gift certificate. Happy stamping!

Thanks for stopping by!
