Last week Tracey posted her card challenge. She challenged all of us to use embossing (dry or heat) on our cards. I opted to use my newest Quickutz embossing folder, a cute Christmas tree, and some Coredinations cardstock. After embossing I sanded the embossed image and decorated it with Ranger Stickles. It certainly sparkles :)
This week Marissa has challenged us to use a fabulous sketch by Allison Cope. Ally creates amazing sketches that are wonderfully inspiring. Check out her blog here. I used the sketch and some old papers I found in my stash to create my layout. I cut out a large pumpkin for the circle part of the sketch and coloured it with my Copic markers. The pumpkin border is a Bazzill Just The Edge Halloween border, coloured with Copic markers. I used a stamp by Inkadinkado for the flourishes. The font is Quickutz Holiday font (left over from the last QA class, which is why I mixed upper and lower case letters -- I also thought it looked fun).
Please join us on the Scrapping Turtle forum to see what the rest of the Design Team created for these challenges and to join us for these and future weekly challenges.
