SFYTT - overboard

time for another Sketch For You To Try from one of my MOST fave blogs -
i{heart}tostamp - Jen Del Muro's blog. If you have not had the pleasure run over there now and check her out!! So first the sketch - which is posted every Saturday:

ok so i totally went overboard on this one but i really loved the sketch and i needed a last few more male type cards to send my mom for her show. so here are my samples:

For these I first made paper using the reinker splash technique from Technique Junkies. I used SU reinker - bold brights. then cut the balloons on the cricut with Gearge cart. i embossed with a couple cuttlebug folders - loving the swiss dots which i just got in the mail - man is it hard to come by - i totally lucked out on that one!!

the next few follow the sketch very loosely - not exact but the sketch was my inspiration:

The first two backgrounds are pearl mist made from perfect pearls powder and reinker in a mini mister. the last one was brayered on using a big & juicy rainbow ink pad. the gold and silver ones are embossed using ranger's detail embossing powder - GREAT stuff!! all of these items are available on my website.

finally - remember "cake-cakes?" well here is my adorable little darling enjoying the fruits of our labors.....
