TSSC143 + CC292

This was my first attempt at this week's Monday Lunchtime Sketch, but I'm still not sure if I love it. I think the black is too much and the color doesn't show enough on the butterfly's wings. I tried to ink the embossed dots with pale blue chalk ink, but you can only see it close up. I also opted not to use the big bow on the bottom strip, and wish the ribbon was lighter. Oh, well, that's why I tackled the sketch again, this time flipping it onto its side. The second card uses today's Color Challenge at SCS as well.

Here's a close up of the detail in the image. I added Stickles to Cosmo's party hat, and pieced it in pink. The lolly is also embossed with Dazzle Versamark and clear EP on Real Red cs. The spots on Cosmo's shell have some glitter on them.

This card was fun to make, although I was stumped for a while about the red. I think it works though, with the felt flower border. In the centers of the flowers are small pink Bella Dots that I got forever ago. Can you tell I'm really starting to dig through my stash to use some stuff up? It will take me years! BUT, I got a new desk chair and can sit longer at my craft desk now! My old chair made my back hurt no matter how long I sat in it. I only wish they made cutely upholstered chairs!

That's enough rambling today. I have to remind myself that today is Tuesday because of the holiday yesterday. Hope you're having a good one. Thanks for looking!
