TSG119 - Sketch Challenge

Oh my goodness! It's Tuesday already, and I give you my sample for the TSG challenge only now... It only shows how crazy it is around here at the moment ;)
This week our featured Trendsetter Tammy is challenging us to create a card using this lovely sketch:

As I looked at this sketch, I thought that it would look terrific with the lamps from the Lighten Up set. I've been neglecting it badly... I don't know why! These lamps are sooo CUTE!

It's no secret that I love Torico's style (Torico is the illustrator for this set, and many more in the TSG store), and I wanted to try my hand at it. The magic of her cards, as I tend to call it, is something that I can't really put a finger on - they just seem to glow with warmth and serenity to me. There's no way I can copy the look, but what I can do is to try and minimize the embellishments and resist the urge to pile up on vivid colours :)


Supplies: cardstock: white, AnnaBelle Stamps (grey, teal); paper: unknown brand; stamps: There She Goes (Lighten Up); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distress Ink (Pumice Stone); Copics; buttons; Glossy Accents (Ranger)

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that celebrates Summer, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (August 15). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG119 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Thanks for taking a peek :)
