If It's Sunday...

... it must mean I'm sneaking in my last-minute Paper Smooches SPARKS card. Honestly, I do check out the sneak peek of the next week's challenge and everything, but for some reason, it always seems to take me the week to solidify an idea. This week is a Cool Shades challenge:


I also incorporated the sketch from the latest Paper Players challenge:


After a lot of playing with ideas, here's what I came up with...


Why yes, I did look through all my patterned paper, and just couldn't find anything that worked the way I wanted it to -- so I made my own with some Smooch Spritz. I used Distress markers for the first time to watercolour this sweet cat -- I think I like them. A lot. :) The dark purple really seems to make him pop on the split background. 
Off to link up before it's too late! 

Supplies: white, teal & purple cardstock, Paper Smooches Nine Lives stamps, Memories black, Versamark & Memento teal zeal & pear tart inks, clear embossing powder, distress markers, Spellbinders reverse wonky rectangles, Sea Kiss Smooch Spritz, May Arts ribbon, dimensionals

Pin It Now!

ahhhhhhh! This is too adorable! I love the little smidges of pink :) Did you buy a bunch of Distress markers or only a few? I have picket fence but that's it so far.
