Tuesday Morning Sketches #177 - Bugaboo!

I got smart and worked ahead when I made this card...and I've wanted to share it since I made it! This week's sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches was designed by Angela, and its clean lines and large focal point were PERFECT for playing with a fun & snarky Bugaboo image. I've been lucky enough to win a Bugaboo-sponsored challenge before, and let me tell you...trying to choose? And their customer service is top-notch.

I am (probably not surprisingly...) a fan of Stella :) I've used Stella Calendar Month - November (and just found a bunch of awesome new ones in the Stella collection - and there's a sale on!)

Supplies: Recollections cardstock; Bugaboo digital image; EAD Designs rub-on sentiment; miniature lights from Jolee's; Mod Podge Dimensional Magic

I've used inks & glimmer mists to colour in the image - and I forgot to write down which ones. Sorry about that! The Dimensional Magic was added to her glasses, and a tiny dab under each light to keep them placed the way I wanted. The three circles on the sketch had me thinking snowflakes at first, and then I saw this rub-on....and she looks so NOT 'ho ho ho' I had to use it :)

Here's the sketch:

We are maintaining a regular challenge schedule at Tuesday Morning Sketches, so this linky will be open until Sunday, December 23rd, and a new special challenge will be announced on the 25th!

Fun card and love those mini bulbs!

Debbie said...

Yeah, she is looking more "bah, humbug!" than "ho, ho, ho"!! Really cute! I love the string of lights!!

I just love Stella's expression, and Ho Ho Ho says it all, in sarcastic fashion. I used to have a bunch of those little lights for a tiny tree, but threw them out when the tree got puny. Wish I'd kept them now!

I don't know why people keep calling the old lady in that image, "Stella," when everyone knows perfectly well that it is me. And I'm so tired of never getting my commission check!!

(ADORE this card!!)

This card is awesome! Love how you kept it clean and simple, but the little details are incredible! The glaze on her glasses, and that string of lights... just AWESOME! :)

Angela said...
