My Stampin' Up! Classes

Friday, May 13, 2011

I used Recess for the new Monkey Challenge 56: A Kid Card + A Sketch...

It's a new challenge on the A la Card Monkey blog, and I've chosen this cute girl on the slide from the Recess stamp set, having her hold a balloon from Crazy for Cupcakes.

I watercolored the images with ink pads and an aqua painter after stamping them in Basic Black. I love the bright colors of the Play Date dsp and pulled the Real Red and Tempting Turquoise directly that it. I used the sketch below to make my card.
I didn't mean for my words to turn this way, but something wonky happened so here they are. I used a stamp from the new Summer Mini hostess set Swirls & Curls Verses. Cute, isn't it?

So now it's your turn to get creative. Make a project using the sketch above and link it to by next Thursday at midnight. Make something a kid would love! And have a great weekend.

Stamps: Recess, Swirls & Curls Verses, Crazy for Cupcakes;
Ink: Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, and Soft Suede ink pads, Blush Blossom marker;
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Playdate dsp;
Accessories: Brights Buttons, aqua painter, dimensionals, 3" circle die for the Big Shot, 5/8" Early Espresso satin ribbon, 1/8" Real Red taffeta.

SO CUTE!! I am LOVING the addition of the balloon!! Your coloring is great, too and great idea to use the play date fits perfectly with this set! I just got the new hostess set with those words...I'll have to ink it up soon!

I really love this card Terry! I think its the Play Date DSP that does it for that stuff for kids cards! Your watercolouring is also fab! Well done, girl!
