Stamptacular Sunday "SKETCH Challenge!"

This week’s challenge is going to be so much fun!  We can’t wait to see what you create!
This week's challenge is a…
“SKETCH Challenge!”

For this week's challenge you will create a card that uses the above sketch!  Feel free to flip it, flop it, twist it or turn it, but be sure we can still see the original sketch in your completed project!  Oh…and don’t forget to STAMP!  After all…we don’t call this the STAMPtacular Sunday Challenge for nothing!      
You will have from now until midnight (EST) January 19th, 2013 to complete this challenge and post a DIRECT LINK to your submission into our InLinkz in order to be entered into the drawing for this week's fabulous prize donated by:
PRIZE:  Winner’s Choice of SEVEN Digi Images!



Well, I wish I could win! These prizes sound like fun, don't they? I hope you enjoy using the sketch--I certainly did!

And, as I am trying to get ahead and get more DT work done, I am going to keep this exceptionally brief. Just like the few posts to follow.

I chose Tiddly Inks Lilli Claire Tude for this challenge. I printed her on Cryogen CS. I felt in love with this image when I first saw it. I think she reminds me of myself as a child. (Or as an adult, take your pick.) But she is bad-a**, isn't she? I think she is actually Bugaboo's Stella as a youngster. Or Hallmark's Maxine. Anyway, I had to use one of the Lilli sentiments, because it goes so well with this pose.

I used DP from the Basic Grey Out of Print collection, which I have been hoarding for quite a while. And I paired it with Stampin' Up CS. I accented Lilli Claire with a Copic Spica and some white gel pen after coloring her with Copics: YR82, R20, E000, E00, E11, E13, E15, E18, E97, YG61, YG63, BG000, BG53.  Then I stamped a Basic Grey flourish around the image with Versafine ink. And, finally, I added Me & My Big Ideas Icons to the sentiment and the DP. That's it. Pretty simple for me, hey?

So, check out my DTeamies--they rock! And then, get busy and create a take on our sketch--looking forward to seeing yours! Have a great week!
