OK, I'll admit it. I was so determined to make a card today, I got 1/2 my housework done, then took a little break to create. Let the laundry sit for a bit! ;-)
I had two crafting goals today:
1) Use new "Sweet Scoops" stamp set (Summer Mini).
2) Participate in a challenge at SCS.
I'm here to inform you...I DID IT and I'm so excited about it!!! :) Small victories are big ones here. ;-)
It has been WAY too long since I've done a challenge...and of course I chose today's challenge to return to challenges, lol! Take a look at this doozy of a sketch! lol
As someone who lately tends towards clean & simple, it was hard for me to add all those layers (each had specific measurements, too)! PLUS, I'm a little OCD when it comes to straight lines. Skew the image THAT much? lol
I am sooo glad I did it. What I appreciate about stamping challenges is that they CHALLENGE me to think outside the box & feel more creative, too! lol
Bright colors are usually not my thing, but it totally works with this! :) I used shading on the scoop of sherbet, with a touch of glitter on the edge. LOVE it! :) I also stamped the apricot layer with the "sprinkles" from the set....and each colored layer is sponged around the edges, too.
Well, what do you think?
