Chocolate Orange - Featured Stamper on Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Today there is a new challenge over on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, and its to follow this great sketch by Melissa.  I was delighted to win their judged challenge last week and was really inspired to make this card as this weeks featured stamper.  What an honour! :)

I used a fabulous image called 'Bossy' from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I love these images and seem to smile the entire time I am crafting with them.  The challenge on Mo's DP2 blog this week is 'Orange, Yellow & Red'. 

Now, anyone who knows me knows that Orange annoys me ;) Not the fruit, or the chocolate (obviously) just the colour.  I had to dig really deep in my stash to find anything orange - it was all buried!  I coloured this image with pro-markers and printed my own sentiment.  I used a sheet of paper from a free stack of MME, and the rest is assorted kanban patterned card.  The flowers, ribbon and charm were also from old stash.

I will be entering this card in the following competitions:

Mos Digital Pencil - Orange, Red, Yellow
Fab n' Funky - Digital stamping
Crafty Creations - Heat it up - I think this fits in with warm, hot and spicy.
Paperplay challenge - Layer it up
Do You Stack Up - Patterns - I have 3 different DP/Patterned papers and card on this project. 2nd entry
Crafty Catz - Flowers
Crafts 4 Eternity - Polka Dots
Cutie Stampers - Stripes
Totally Gorjuss - Anything Goes
CES - Bold and Bright
Stamptacular Sunday - Anything Goes
Pear Tree Designs - Flowers
Ooh La La - 3 of a Kind - 3 bunches of flowers
One Stitch at a Time - Photo Inspiration - Orange, gold, green
Paper Playtime - Digi Monday - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes + Flowers

Thanks so much for looking, and good luck to everyone in these challenges.

Great coloring job! I am not a big fan of orange either, but I love this!

Paula said...

Just as well we're not the same isn't it? I love this, I have no idea why but maybe I like orange. Love your sentiment with this - & the way you've used the spots & stripes is quite glorious - I like how the scallops pick up on the circle shape.
