1st ever Blog Candy! and Sweet Dreamers Blog Challenge #9-Aly's Sketch Challenge
10 year old Aly loves to stamp. Her Mom let her post a Blog, where she posts a sketch challenge every other week- and each participant has the chance to win Blog Candy. So, I decided to really celebrate World Card Making Day, I would offer additional Candy- and this is my first ever blog candy- for anyone who finds my post and participates in Aly's challenge.
First, this is the sketch Aly drew (above....pretty challenging for a 10 yr old if I may say so myself!). Below is my interpretation of the sketch this week- which is also a challenge for our SCS Sweet Dreamers Blog group- to participate in the sketch.
Deets for my card: I remade a previous card! I found appropriate DSP to use- I have been using lots of DSP lately- this is by Basic Gray. I set out the DP for the challenge, and chose Ruby Red as the matching card stock. I cut out my image using Nestabilities circle and scalloped circle. The image is Hello Friend which is made by Firecracker Designs by Pamela. I used the marker Watercolor technique on the main image, and she has flower soft added on her hairband (also from Firecracker Designs by Pamela). I added the ribbon and the flower to complete the Sketch Challenge.
Now, the below 'Candy' can be yours by:
1)Participate in Aly's Sketch Challenge
2)Go to Aly's blog
and post a link to your card.
3)Come back to my blog and leave a comment, with a link to your card made with Aly's Sketch. (Please make sure I have a way to contact you- leave an e-mail address).
4)Post your card on Splitcoast if you have an account and with a link to my post or Aly's sketch post, then leave me your Member name (aka mine is mcschmidty) in your comment, and I will add your name in for a second chance to win.
5)There is one more week of Aly's Sketch- so a random number will be chosen NEXT Sunday, October 11th from those that leave a link with a sketch to a card on Aly's blog. You also have a chance to win Aly's 'candy' as well.
There are 5 Studio G stamp sets here and one small spool of double sided ribbon.
I will ship internationally as well-so please pass the word.
Thanks for encouraging the creativity of a young child!
