Have a Ball

Finally got a chance to play with The Stamps of Life March club set, Bubblegum4me.  Cute set!! I used this weeks sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I use sketches quite a bit since I am creatively challenged!

I started with a white card base and sponged on some Broken China Distressed Ink for the background.  I then adhered a strip of PP to the middle.  Stamped the sentiment on a fishtail flag and adhered that to a strip of green paper.  Glued the sentiment strip as shown.  I stamped the gumball machine and fussy cut it out.  Colored the machine and gumballs with a variety of water based markers.  Still need practice with markers.  I prefer to use my colored pencils, but thought I'd give the makers a try.  Added some Glossy Accents to the gumballs. I then popped it up with some foam tape,  Easy peasy!!
Thanks for looking!  God bless!!

  2. Fun card!! The glossy accents on the gumballs is great!!
    Thanks for joining us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

  3. Hey, sketches don't come easy! I'd say that reaching for a sketch shows that you have too MANY ideas :) And from how your card turned out I'd definitely argue with you about being creatively challenged. Be nice to yourself, Kris :)
    I am loving those bubblegum pieces - the shading looks great, they look shiny! So glad you played with us at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week :)

  4. Look at those sweet gumballs! Thanks for joining us at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
