Julee's Sketch


I did this card for Julee Tilman's card contest seen here. All you have to do is use the card sketch she provides. Go check it out.

I made my card using all papers from Basic Grey's Gypsy paper pad and solids from Stampin' Up! I colored this sentiment from Alphabet Soup with markers, huffed and stamped. Then dotted the exclamation point with a brad I had coated in copper ep. The white mega circle is layered on the patterened giga scalloped circle which is, in turn, layered on close to cocoa cut with my coluzzle. Otherwise the papers blended together a little too much. I used my paper piercer and faux stitched with a chocolate chip marker. The straight scalloped trim was cut with Fiskars scissors. The big brads I think may have actually been those things from the office supply section made to hold papers together. I don't know...are they called brads too? But they were rather brassy, so they got coated in copper ep too.

The stuff:
Stamps: Alphabet Soup
Ink: all markers: regal rose, ballet blue, real red, green galore, pumpkin pie, chocolate chip
Paper: close to cocoa, whisper white, basic grey gypsy
Other: mega circle and giga scalloped circle punches by Marvy Uchida, paper piercer, coluzzle, copper embossing powder, copper cord, SU! silver brad, office supply brads, fiskars scalloped scissors, dimensionals
