Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge #33

Hello all! Hope your week is off to a wonderful start. Thanks for joining me for another Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenge. Here is this week's challenge:


It's a sketch challenge this week and the sketch is by the talented Kim Yu. Here is my take on the sketch:


Hope you can see my twist on the sketch. =) I mirrored it to fit my image. The stamp that I used is Scooter Chloe. She is such a delightful character! It makes me happy coloring her. =)


After coloring it, I cut the image out using a Petit Ovals Small die using the out of the frame technique. The image is then matted with a piece of dark chocolate cardstock cut with a Petit Ovals Large die. I then machine stitched them together. The sentiment piece is cut using a Classic Ovals Large die and matted with a piece of dark chocolate cardstock cut using a Classic Scalloped Ovals Large die.


The patterned paper is from the yummy Hopscotch collection by BasicGrey. The sentiment is from the Heartily Yours Additions set. I wiped the "Hi" off and added three dots instead since I planned to finish the inside of the card to compliment the front. Here is the inside of the card:


The sentiment on the inside is from the Sending Smiles set by Hero Arts.

That's all I have. Please go and check out what the other designer team members came up with for this challenge and find out all the details for the challenge here. Hope you can join us this week! =)

I LOVE this!!! I really need to look into that "out of the frame" technique. I've tried it several different ways, but it never looks as good as this!
