SSW2: Cheeky DigiStamp Boutique
Hello Wednesday Friends.
I'm back to share a card that I made for this week's Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 challenge.
This week we are being sponsored by DigiStamp Boutique. I used Sally-Ann's Cheeky Monkey set (I love this set!!). There are three fun images and all are fabulous! Sally-Ann is offering our winner a £10 voucher to her store. Cool!
I'm also using this card for the Breast Cancer Hope You Can Cling To challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers. It's their annual card drive to benefit cancer patients. This is it's 5th year.
Lydia challenged us to use the paper tole technique. There is an interesting tutorial over on the SCS blog if you aren't sure what it is. Here's another picture so you can see my layers better.
What I learned was ... I do it wrong. Apparently you shouldn't see white underneath all the layers. None of the glues I tried worked so in the end, I used the pop-dots I always do to give me the depth that I wanted (unfortunately, they are WHITE pop-dots). I might have to invest in the recommended glue ... I have to admit that I like it darker underneath.
I hope that you can pop over to the Sweet Sketch blog this week to participate. YOU could be our next winner!
