Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #89


Happy Friday! Wouldn't this be perfect for someone turning 40?....I'm not there YET....
Retro is so hot you will love this new ATC set coming out by Cornish Heritage Farms. It is due to be released November 3rd! There are a lot of fun little sassy sayings but this one in particular I use quite often...lol!
Nothing says retro quite like the Early Bird paper from Cosmo Cricket! I love this stuff! I colored my retro vacuum with my copics then did my shading with my prismacolor pencils. When you are combining coloring mediums such as this...make sure you do your marker coloring FIRST. This will keep you from damaging the tips of your markers:)
Here are all my card deets:
Stamps:
Domestic Love (ATC), Invitation Essentials (MLM) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Ink:
Tuxedo Black memento (Tsukineko)
Paper:
Early Bird (Cosmo Cricket)
Simply Smooth Vanilla (Prism)
Accessories:
Copic Markers
Chipboard (Cosmo Cricket)
Prismacolor Pencils
Sewing
Corner Rounder (Marvy)


Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge.

I think this card is just terrific. I first saw it on Taylor's blog and just had to know how to make it and where the stamps came from. I have bookmarked this page so that I can come back and order those stamps. Yeah for retro!
