High Hellos......and Big Whoops!!



I had a little time yesterday morning before I went in to work in the afternoon, so I pulled up the sketch challenges for Lizzie Anne Designs' Birthday Celebration! You know how much I LOVE sketches and there were some LAD stamps that I had yet to ink up.....GASP!! I know!! So I had to rectify that situation right away!!

The images from High Hellos really go well with the second sketch so I chose to play with that one first. Last Friday I got my preorder from Stampin' Up which included new colours of cardstock, ink and new designer paper! So of COURSE I had to play with that stuff too! Now don't ask me what it's called because I can't remember but the new dp was my jumping off point for these two cards.



I stamped the topiary on Wausau bright white cardstock using Archival Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured them in using my Copic markers. I coloured them sort of sketchy like the images, not colouring them completely and leaving some areas white. I used two coordinating pieces of the dp on each card, added a couple of pink brads, some pink taffeta ribbon and pop dotted the matted main images. I stamped the sentiment on another piece of dp and punched it out using my tag punch.



I really love this sketch and I like the way both of these turned out. Can't decide which one I like better. What do you think?

Anyhoo, I uploaded them to Lizzie Anne Designs' Gallery and was proud that I managed it, because it's the first time I've done it over there. I think I did everything right. Then I said to myself, "Hmmm....it is a birthday celebration. I wonder if the cards are supposed to be BIRTHDAY cards?" Sure enough, they do. SO it's back to the drawing board for me. DUH!!! Oh well, I really do like the sketch and will use it again for sure!!!



Hopefully I'll have time to make some more before the deadline, but I'm off to work this morning. Another full day for me!! Happy stampin'!!
