42 {Rocks}!


Today's Sketch For You To Try is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique. One lucky sketch participant will win three digi images of her choice! Hope you'll play along!

Here's the sketch:



I've used a fun, cool digi image - Madyson - to make a birthday card for my younger sister (by three minutes, hehe.) Today is our day!! Here's the finished inside:


Some card particulars:

  • Printed on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White with an HP inkjet printer (had some noticeable bleeding on the black hair, by the way)
  • Colored with Copics and Prismacolors
  • Designer paper from Cosmo Cricket's Pixie-licious Mini Deck
  • Embossing done with Rays and Retro Circles Texture Fades embossing folder by Tim Holtz
  • lots of hand-stitching and distressing
  • the numbers on the inside are vinyl Thickers by American Crafts and the brackets and letters for {rocks} are Boho Chic Tiny Alphas by Making Memories
