CBCC #23, Friday Sketchers & A Spoon Full of Sugar!

Thank you to everyone who sent me well wishes! My migraine is gone! YAY! So without further ado here is my entry for this week's CBCC! I am also using this as my entry for this week's Friday Sketchers sketch challenge! Bea (from Megahobby) created a fabulous sketch to play with! You can see Bea's sketch HERE! And this also is my Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge which the theme this week is Love is in the air!

I used my beautiful WOJ Melinda Hugging Heart! I colored her with my Copics! I added Shimmerz Blingz hottie pink to the ribbon on the heart, and Blingz pixie dust to her wings! Used my nesties for the oval and scalloped oval behind Melinda. Then I took a white dolie and sprayed it with my Glimmer Mist in Pink Taffy and Iridescent Gold. I used my corner punches and swirl punches. DP is K&Co. Flowers, spacers, charm and ribbon are from my stash! Most of my supplies and tools were purchased from Wish On A Scrap.

Here is a close up so you can see the Shimmerz on Melinda's wings and the ribbon on her heart! If you look close you can see the shimmer on the swirls (leaves) by the flowers. I used Blingz Hottie Pink on the red swirls which made them look like a dark pink, and on the passion pink swirls I used my Blingz in Pink Poinsettia which gave them a real nice shimmer.
Then we have the finished inside. I used my Fiskars heart border punch....are you getting sick of seeing it yet? More K&Co. paper and some foam hearts for a little bit of spice!
I am off to read some more of my book for my Women in Literature class! We are reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood....it's not to terrible of a read either! Hope you all have a fabulous week! Don't forget to sign up for my blog candy if you haven't done so already!

Deb said...

Hi Kim

The swirl stamp is from a pack of clear stamps from 7 Gypsies, it is called Notting Hill. If you have any problems finding it I put a link on the post of the shop I got them from, the glitter garden, I am sure Katy would post them to you. Check out her sale items as they were on special offer when I bought them! All the stamps in the pack are so beautiful!hope this helps!
have a great weekend!
