All Mixed Up Again!

I promise this one will be a quick post! I loved the sketch challenge from Wednesday so much that I decided to do it again! Check it out at Splitcoast Stampers! SC169

I used the same stamp set, All Mixed Up, and I’m wondering why they retired it! I think it is soo stinkin cute and I can’t believe I waited a full year to cut it! I used the same layout. The girl is really holding a heart, but I didn’t want her to, so I gave her a bouquet of flowers instead! I wanted her to be radiant, so I lit her up with yellow, then shaded around the yellow with a blue. I can't decide if I really like the effect, but I liked the card well enough to accept it! (I wasn't coloring it again!!)

PTI White, DCWV blue CS, SU! Purely Pomegranate CS, all patterned paper is from TAC Catelynne Fly With it Paper Collection. Colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS. Flowers are Doodle Bug Cupcake Paper Posies.

The ugly duck below is really "All Mixed Up!" It was so much fun to color his slippers pink and to add the pink brads....way out of my norm....but I love how it turned out! I thought of my youngest son when I made this card! He's on the goofy side and likes to be different, but now that I say that...maybe I was thinking about my eldest....He really likes to stand out in a crowd! Hmm.. Perhaps I need to make another one!

One Ugly Duck!

One Ugly Duck:
PTI White, DCWV Blue/Yellow, patterned paper from retired TAC Designer Collection Country Cottage, Making Memories Polo Shimmer Brads (the pink ones to match the slippers!).

Thanks for stoppin' by!
