So, 2011 is just about kaput--only the vestiges remain. Do y'all have any plans for New Years Eve??? I'm planning on some UBER quality 1:1 time with my dear hubby, Jonathan. It will be our first New Years Eve together (well, PHYSICALLY together...last year we rang in the new year over the phone--he was still in Florida, I was here in Texas). This year we're gonna spend it, TOGETHER, at home. I'm looking forward to a quiet, cozy evening. I hope I make it to midnight...sometimes I turn into a pumpkin just like Cinderella's coach.
Anywho...I've gotten WAY off track here. FOCUS, TORREY, FOCUS!!
It's time for the LAST challenge of 2011 over at Chocolate, Coffee & Cards Challenges (CCCC)!!! ONE LAST CHANCE to play with us at CCCC this year!!!
The sponsor for this challenge is Digi Doodles . I really LOVE roosters (as attested by their presence ALL OVER my kitchen). So I HAD to pick this jaunty fellow and his harem for my project! This time 'round we were given a rather intricate sketch to follow by Jenn. Sorry Jenn, but did I mention how much I really am not fond of sketches??? I put sketches right up there with going to the dentist. I'm just not a sketch girl--which is sort of hilarious given the fact that I helped create a book about scrapbooking sketches. Needless to say...I soldiered through it and whatyaknow...it wasn't AWFUL.
The base for both my card and the images is kraft paper. I colored the rooster, hens and chicks with my Prismacolor colored pencils and used odorless mineral spirits (Gamsol) for blending. The colors are SO vibrant, you'd NEVER know that the images are on kraft paper.
Here is the Sketch:
And here is my take on it:
Nestability die - Spellbinders (Inverted scalloped circle)
Designer paper - Daisy D's, Basic Grey, and unkown
picket fence punch - EK Success for Martha Stewart
rhinestones - Michaels
Prismacolor colored pencils
stamping ink - Colorbox
woven jute ribbon - Michaels
plastic netting - was wrapped around my holiday ham
