Try Stampin' On Tuesday: Challenge 355-Sketch and the 30 Day Coloring Challenge with The Daily Marker

Happy Saturday everyone!! I hope everyone is having a fabulous and HEALTHY week!!

Chris was home for three days with some virus. He had a flu test but was not the flu. I never caught it, thank goodness, but laid low anyways. Sometimes that is the best thing!!

I am playing along today with two challenges. I have been coloring for the 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker. I also am joining Try Stampin' On Tuesday: Challenge #355, which is a sketch, but had the optional theme of love.

Here is the card I created:

Here is the sketch:

I used Stamping Bella Snapshots "I Heart You" stamp for both the image and the sentiment.

I colored in the polaroid with Copic markers. I was a bit heavy handed in the blue on the polaroid frame BUT you live and you learn. I also played with a new paper that I bought and would highly recommend for alcohol markers. I bought some Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium Cardstock and so far like it better then the Neenah that I usually use. (And no, I do not get any money for this opinion. Just have been trying out different papers lately to see what I like best!!)

The background was created with smooshing some Stampin Up! ink onto watercolor paper.

The two die cut hearts are covered with sparkle marker but had a hard time photographing that.

Well that is all from me tonight. I will be back tomorrow with another card. Have a great night!!
