CPS Sketch 222

I needed a masculine get well card and this week's sketch at CPS worked out perfectly.

I don't know who this nurse is by, but I just love her. 
Stamped the nurse with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Prismacolor markers, her lips and glasses were colored with gel pens.  Dug through my stash of dp and chose the coordinating argyle and striped papers.  Matted all pieces on dark brown Bazzill cs and layered onto a Sage Shadow card base.  

Thanks for stopping by!

JUGS challenge this week is to use the woodgraining technique

First I scored the lines for the boards on Barely Banana cs.  Added Memento Rich Cocoa by sliding the pad down the cs then lightly sliding the VersaMagic white on top of the brown.  Used a black gel pen for the nails.  Stamped the truck from Tami Mayberry's set by Gina K - Oh Boy! and colored with Prismacolor markers and silver Stardust gel pen.  Decided it was too white against the wood bg, so I stamped one of the Timeless Textures over the top with TH Distress Ink Antique Linen.  Layered onto dark brown Bazzill cs and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Stamps:  Gina K Oh Boy! and Timeless Textures
cs:  SU Barely Banana, dark brown Bazzill, Gina K Pure Luxury white
ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black and Rich Cocoa, VersaMagic White, TH Distress Ink Antique Linen
accessories:  Nesties Labels, Prismacolor markers, black gel pen, silver Stardust gel pen

Mojo Monday with Texture

This card is for my niece's birthday this week.  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday 194

I am also using this for the Mixed Up Monday Challenge over at Stamp TV, to add texture.

First I chose the dp that I wanted to use and cut it into strips, rounding the bottom with a Nesties circle die.  The digi dp was all free from Two Peas in a Bucket.  The drum set from Gina K's Live Life Loud was stamped in Memento Rose Bud and the sentiment stamped over the top with VersaFine Black.  Stamped the grid-texture piece from the same stamp set on white cs for some texture and added the double stitched black ribbon on top.  Layered the image/sentiment circle onto an inverted scalloped circle Nestie in Passionate Pink.  Cut the black tails with the Nestie's Pennant die.  Added the punched yellow star in place of the bow.

Stamps:  Gina K Live Life Loud, illustrated by Tami Mayberry
ink:  Memento Rose Bud and VersaFine Black
cs:  Gina K Pure Luxury White, Passionate Pink, Wild Dandelion, Black
accessories:  Nesties circles,  inverted scalloped circle and pennants dies, star punch, Gina K ribbon

Thanks for looking!
