I always love all the sketches and challenges you can find on Monday! Usually on Monday I am dragging in a big way. This week was no exception -- somehow the kids and I all have a bad cold and cough. It has been keeping me up at night (well, that and the icky poo contractions I have been having). Anyway, it is great to have some inkspiration when you need it.
And now I would like to introduce to you Laundry Sophie & Couch Riley Moose! YAY! How fun that you are getting MORE Riley stamps this month! They are SO darn fun!!!
I first decided to cover the Papertake Weekly Challenge and the Ismaki challenge. One was a gorgeous sketch with an option to use eyelets (which I did not do because I could not find the silver ones I wanted) and the other was to add sparkle to your card.
It's hard to see, but the Sophie image is colored with copic markers and then I added some sparkle by using my luminarte Twinkling H2O's (Blushing caramel, and pale porcelin). I used some diamond stickles on top of the Heidi Swapp ghost flower to add even more sparkle. I am totally in love with this sentiment set by Hanna Stamps -- way too funny! I SO relate to how Sophie is feeling here!!!
