Yep, another week just past us by and so it's time for a new sketch at Inspired Blueprints. Are you up for the challenge.
Well, here's what I did with the 86th sketch... For this layout I used an old My Mind's Eye Collection.

Supplies: My Mind's Eye "Bella Bella", Tim Holtz Alterations "Wordplay" and "Cargo Stencil Number Set", doilies, tule, flower by Prima Marketing, handmade plaster embellishments, Perfect Pearls, gesso, stamp by Tattered Angels.
The last day of February and also my last entry as one of Cardabilities Design Team members.'For me it's time to move over and make place for a whole new Team.
I've been a member of the Cardabilities team for a little over a year (4 terms) and I have to say: I had a lot of fun working with Karan's sketches and it was great to be on the team. I know the new team members will love their place in the new team and I wish them all the best.
Time for the card (#70) I made. I loved the sketch and I really had fun making this card.

I hope you like what I did with the sketch and that you'll come and join us over at Cardabilities!
Finally a had some time to sit down and start on Tim Holtz' February-tag before the month is over.
February has been a really crazy month for me. Next month will be crazy too, but after that I think ít's getting a bit less hectic.
As to be expected I didn't have all the stuff Tim used on his tag, but I think it turned out well.

Supplies: Inkssentials #8 size manila tag, Tim Holtz Alterations Texture Fades "Distressed Frame & Postal Set", Distress Ink, Distress Stain, Idea-ology "Cash Keys", Idea-ology Tissue Wrap "Composer", Stamp it Australia "Time in Paris".
And some details...
This was a fun tag to make, but as always I sure am curious what you think of it.
It's Thursday night in Europe and already Friday Down Under. What better way to start of the weekend than with a new Inspired Blueprints challenge.
For me this challenge was two challenges in one. Don't ask me why, because I wouldn't know how to answer it, but I really had some difficulties with the sketch. So that was my first challenge.
The seccond challenge was the paper I used for this layout. Although I really love it, I just have to face it... I'm a vintage kinda girl (LOL).
I know my way around with all kinds of vintage paper, but bold colors and I aren't the greatest match.
Thursday in Europe and Friday Downunder... Whatever day it is, it's time for Inspired Blueprints' new sketch and this time the second half of our Design Team are going to show you what they've done with it.
Here's my entry...

Supplies: Maya Design "Fika", swirl by Dusty Attic, Martha Stewart punches "Doily Lace" and "Double Scallop", Marianne Design die RL0115 (big butterfly), Memory Box dies "Darla Butterfly" and "Vivienne Butterfly", flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts, pearls, pearl ribbon, chippboard font, Ranger Distress Ink, embossing powder.
And this is the 82nd sketch we had to work with this time around...
The big lettlers were painted with Crackle Paint (Milled Lavender). When dried I colored some of each letter with Distress Ink (Dusty Concord). Next, when dried, I embossed it with clear embossing powder and after that with some I sprinkled some colored embossing powder on it, for the 'speck effect' on the letters.
The small letters were done just about the same way. I only left out the coloring with the Distress Ink.
I hope you like what I did with the sketch. Just come on over at Inspired Blueprints and come and see what the other Design Team members did. Or... better yet... join in and show us what you've done with the sketch!
