It’s Time for a Limelight Sketch Challenge!


It’s getting close to Father’s Day and I thought today’s sketch challenge over at Limelight would be the best way to get my creative wheels-a-turnin’! This Changito is available at Limelight, and when I saw it, it was love at first sight! This will be the perfect card for my boys to give to their daddy!
I used a blender pen and my Stampin’ Up! ink pads to color in the monkeys and give them a water colored look. I also used the out-of-the-box technique on the monkey square, and sponged around the edges to finish it. Layouts like this one are an awesome way to show off coordinating papers, and that is exactly what I did using the Wisteria Collection from Basic Grey, which is also available at Limelight Papercrafts. I even used a strip of leftover paper to add a little extra somethin' somethin' (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!) on the inside.

Ingredients: Stamps: Stampendous {Changito Piggy Back, Hang On To You}; Cardstock: Stampin' Up! {Brocade Blue, Very Vanilla, Creamy Caramel}; Designer Paper: Basic Grey {Wisteria}; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa}; Accessories: Stampin' Up! {Taupe Grosgrain, Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware, Dimensionals, Blender Pen, Sponge}.
