Sketch Friday!

Yes, I get excited about white card stock! If you didn't have a chance to stop by yesterday make sure you take a look at that post and videos to see what I am talking about. The new card stock called "X-press it Blending Card" that you can get from copic.....a dream! I used it in today's card!
I took a couple of the images from the coffee and tea clear set by Hero Arts and stamped them on my new card stock. I stamped the toaster first and then made a mask with the new Mask-it product from copic and then stamped the coffee pot. I created a mask for the coffee pot too so that I could airbrush the background.
In efforts to match the early bird paper from Cosmo Cricket I used the colors YG03, YG93 and then came in with C00 to cool down the tone to match my paper. The stainless portions were colored using a series of grays.
As you can see my die cut machine had a little work out where I used my circle and blossom dies from Spellbinders for the main image and the Jumbo Scallop and chain dies from My Favorite Things. I cut a variety of material too....felt and cork that I bought at MFT!

Here is the sketch so you can play along in TAYLOR'S challenge. Yes, I know I deviated once again from the sketch but that is the power of inspiration!
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
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Alice Lihsuan-Wertz: Alice's Little Wonderland
Lisa Hjulberg: The Craft's Meow
Rosie Hughes: Love my Craft Room
Lori Craig: Making a Difference
