Here is my card, finally, for this week's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG88, brought to us by the Trendsetter of the Week (and my BSF), Jessie!! Her challenge is called "Odd Couple" and the challenge is to take several sets and combine them!! SO super fun!!
You should check out the samples from the Trendsetters that were prompt for this challenge (unlike myself)! I was SO inspired by the SUPER talented (not to mention super sweet) Iwona! She combined two sets to create this FANTASTIC card HERE.
THREE There She Goes sets were used in the making of this card (but none were harmed...hardy har har). I started by stamping the bucket from the brand new Buckets Of Love set (I really mean it when I say that you NEED this set! It's SO super versatile and I totally LURVE it!) and then created a mask for it.
I then stamped the coffee cup from The Daily Grind to create a few masks and then started adding them to the bucket. I added one outside the bucket as well. The entire image was colored with Copic Markers and I then cut out and embossed the panel with Square Nestabilities and sponged the edges.
For the sentiment panel, I used Buckets Of Love for the "May Your Day Be Filled With" part of the sentiment, and the "Coffee" is from Let's Get Together!
The layout (once again) is the January SFYTT. I HEART this sketch and I hope you do too! If you complete all twelve sketches this year, there is a HUGE prize up for grabs...like they say, you have to be in it to win it!!
We would LOVE for you to play along with this TSG Challenge! Here are the deets:
