...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #07 & LSC #168

Here's your sketch challenge for today! I made this card for the Limited Supplies Challenge (LSC168) this past week at SCS when I was playing "catch up" on Friday...I just haven't had a chance to post it yet! Here were the rules for that challenge:
  • Use alphabet stamps to create a sentiment
  • The sentiment had to be the focal point
  • Use other stamps as needed on the card
  • Use designer papers and embellishments
I used Tempting Turquoise cardstock as the card base (Layer #1: 6-5/8 X 3-1/2). The Sandy Shells Stampin' Around Wheel was used in Creamy Caramel Classic Ink on a piece of Creamy Caramel cardstock, then matted with a piece of Basic Black cardstock (Layer #2: 5-5/8 X 3). I made the sentiment by stamping Contemporary Alphabet in Jet Black Staz-On Ink on Whisper White cardstock, then colored it with a Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write Marker. I matted it with Real Red cardstock and Basic Black cardstock (Layer #3: 4-7/16 X 1-7/8). Instead of making a square for the next layer, I opted to stamp the crab from Crab & Company in Jet Black Staz-On Ink onto Watercolor Paper. I used a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker and an Aquapainter to color him in, then cut him out with CutterBee Scissors when he was completely dry. He was popped off of the corner of the sentiment panel using Dimensionals (Layer #4). Three Black Brads were added across the upper left side of the card using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer to finish it off.

Don't forget to do the following:
  • Use the keywords MTSC07 when uploading to a public gallery
  • Leave a comment at THIS post that includes a link to your card
  • Post a link back here to the original sketch if you upload to your blog

Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all again tomorrow! Until then.....Hugs ~ Mercy

TOTALLY adorable, and I LOVE that sentiment! :) (You could use that sentiment for a get well card if you left off the bottom part of the B's. lol.)
