Guest Designer - Houses Built of Cards - Day 2

Good morning! Welcome back for my second post for Peachy Keen Stamps. You can find my blog at Houses Built of Cards if you want to leave a comment there for an extra chance to win this weeks prize, plus I have a couple of bonus projects hiding out over there if you're interested!

 Today is the brand new sketch challenge - so I got to make something for that this week! It was such a fabulous sketch - and so easy to work with! This is something new from Peachy Keen that I branched out with to try this week - some of their image stamps! I had pretty much only used their face stamps before, but decided to give these a try - and I'm SOOO glad I did! I absolutely LOVE how great this was for some paper piecing, and working on my rather rough abilities with my copics. Here is my card:


And here is the sketch for the week:


This is the stamp set that I used for this card:


I was so pleasantly surprised by the SIZE of this stamp! This card is a 6x6 card - so you can tell that this is a very good size stamp! Anyway, I paper pieced the dress, hat, and balloon, then used copics to color the rest, with a bit of white gel pen for highlights here and there. The sentiment is also part of this set.


The edges of everything are inked with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen - I love how it blends so great with white paper! Papers are all from My Minds Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky 6x6 paper pad. Added some Jute Cord and a button to finish it off.


And of course, remember to leave a comment every day this week for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps!!! Pop on over to my blog to leave a comment for another chance, and to see a couple of bonus projects!!!

OMG, you did a great job. I love how you used the white gel pen to make little highlights in her hair. I am going to have to try paper piecing. Your card is awesome.
