Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #84
Funny thing about this card...I am back to watching my calories a little (things have gotten away on me). So the only sweet indulgences right now are my cards.
I only have little scraps left of my "early bird" collection from Cosmo Cricket...I have used this paper line A LOT and don't want a single scrap to go to waste!
Let's see...how can I lick the chocolate coating off of this strawberry?
I used Taylor's "Cherries and Berries" set to create this card. I stamped the circle in red ink first and then stamped the strawberry in espresso ink. Colored it with my copics. I had the paper really wet with my markers and as you can see the color RED can very easily get away on you. It feathered ever so slightly beyond my stamped line. I used E50, R14, R27 for the strawberry and E31, E57, E49 for the chocolate. I shadowed with Yr31. I used my nestabilities to cut out the circle then airbrushed the entire thing with YR00.
But the part I wanted to "LICK" was the glossy accents glaze I put over my chocolate....yummm!
The crocheted flower is one of my creations and I customized the white lace with airbrushing as well.
I initially airbrushed it with my R27, but it turned out a little bright so I toned it down by airbrushing over top of it with my E15. Worked like a charm!
Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.
Don't forget to see what the rest of the sketch crew came up with:
Jami Sibley: More is More
Monika Davis: M.A.D. Stamper
Donna Baker: Serenity in Stamping
Lynn Mercurio: Stamperosity
Alright, have yourself a fabulous weekend....I get to teach some classes tomorrow! Woohoo!
I'm off to go snack on some peppers....yeah....
