Colleen's Thursday Throwdown!!


My pal Colleen loves to 'throwdown' a challenge every Thursday and between Design Team stuff and preparing for workshops and work and ..... life....most times I don't get a chance to play!! But last week's challenge was a SKETCH.....so I HAD to play, no doubt about it!!

Well I bought this stamp set used ..... I mean, 'previously loved'..... from a friend a few weeks back and it didn't even look like it had met ink!! So sad!! It's a retired SU set called Merry Minstrels and the style is right up my alley!! I'm not sure when it retired, but I'm so glad I was able to get it!

The card base is a regular card size (wow....not a square this time!) in Pretty in Pink cardstock. The patterned papers are from the Winter Bright Simply Scrappin' kit, which I absolutely LOVE!! The colour combo is my new favourite for Winter!! I stamped the image on Shimmery White cardstock in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured it in using my SU markers in coordinating colours. I added some silver Stickles on the snow and matted the image on Bashful Blue. I used my Mat Pack and pierced holes all around the bottom dp layer and used my white gel pen for the faux stitched look. I used my 3/4 inch circle punch for the half circles in BB and added some Real Red SU eyelets and then added a blue rhinestone flower in the bottom right corner!!!

If you like challenges too, head on over to Colleen's blog, for another Thursday Throwdown!!!
