Artful Inkables- A Sketch Challenge

Hi, All! It sure feels good to be back in the swing of things and in my craft room once again. Seriously, getting away from it for a little showed me just how good this wonderful hobby/passion/ obsession really is for me!

Today is the day that the Artful Inkables DT, aka The Ink Girls, posts their every other Wednesday challenge. This time around the most awesomely talented Jennifer Muraoka created this wonderful, creative sketch for us:We would love to have you play along with this challenge! If you should decide to join us, please either link a card to the comments of THIS post or if you upload to your SCS gallery be sure to include ARTINK in the keywords. We want to be able to see your beautiful projects!

My card started with some of the gorgeous BG Euphoria PP that I teamed up with the fun, fun AI stamp set, Sunburst Dandies. This is such a versatile stamp set and can be used for a plethora of artistic styles. (Just look at it's gallery page to see how many different ways it can be used)! I used black as an accent color to accentuate the beautiful, vivid pastels found in Euphoria. The sparkly black CS is by Doodlebug and the black glitter by Art Glitter. The black ribbon is a retire organdy from SU. In exchange for the circular elements in the bottom right hand corner of the sketch, I used a Maya Roads chipboard swirl which I painted with MM paint and then covered with Angel Wings Shimmerz once it dried. The chipboard bird is Magistical Memories which was covered with the PP then filed, edges inked with Tuxedo Black Memento ink then stamped with a Palette glue pad and sprinkled with the black Art Glitter. The stems and corner adornment are paper pierced. Be sure to check out the cards of the rest of the Ink Girls and our fearless leader, the very talented Kristin!
It's ALWAYS a Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
