Cruisin Celebration – SFYTT

Working on this week’s Sketch for You to Try reminded me just how much I miss my daily stamping and watercoloring. This weekend is sponsored by Sparkle Creations {rubber stamps} and the Design Team got a free stamp to work with!  This is Cruisin’ Chloe and she is so much fun to color in.

I started this card by picking out the designer series paper I wanted to work with.  I chose patterns from the Celebrations pack because I loved the arrows and the bright colors. I started with a Pear Pizzazz card stock base and layered it with Pacific Point and then the dsp.  I used my sewing machine to stitch around each piece and then started on my main image.  I wasn’t sure what main color I wanted to go with for the car, so I asked Evan and he picked Pacific Point and then pulled Cajun Craze down and told me he wanted her to have his hair color.  I also worked with Daffodil Delight, Real Red and Basic Gray.  The windshield, head lights and flower are accented with Crystal Effects.

I do have to admit that I changed up the sketch a bit because the image I chose to work with was so large.  Here is the sketch that Jen provided for us:
As you can see I flipped the sketch. I then omitted the heart element.  I really tried to get it to work with the card, but then I kept covering up all of my arrows on the dsp.  Instead I added the two Brights buttons with the silver elastic bows.

I hope you have a chance to play along with us this week.  If you need more inspiration please make sure to check out the rest of the Sketch for You to Try sisters:

We have another busy weekend here in the Diercks household. It starts with a DePaul women’s basketball game that we went to last night.  I thought it would be fun to go since DePaul was playing Valparaiso.   My entire family went to DePaul and Roger did his undergraduate studies at Valpo.  Today we have to finish up Space Derby rockets and Evan has a birthday party.  Tomorrow we’ll go to church and then to the Cub Scouts Space Derby that is held at Olivet Nazarene here in town.  Colin annd Evan are both racing rockets this year.  I’m also hoping to get some stamping in.  I am really missing my creative time.  I hope you all have a great weekend!
