Piece of Cake

Happy Tuesday!

I played in two challenges this week:  Sketch from My Favorite Things (MFT)

and Photo Inspiration from Mark's Finest Papers. 

It was fun, but I really had a hard time with the sketch.  I knew what I wanted to do, but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to.  I really, really need more time to devote to stamping, looking at layouts, figuring out new designs.  Unfortunately, working 8 hours a day, doesn't leave a lot of time for it and so I make do.  Oh well, I still have fun with what I do, and I hope you enjoy it too.
Materials Used:

  • Image and Sentiment - See D's - Piece of Cake.  I'm not sure if they are still in business.  This is a pretty old stamp set, but I really like it.
  • Word  Background - Whipper Snapper Designs - Party Words Background - another old stamp
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Basic Black, Pretty in Pink, Pixie Pink; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Blush
  • Ink - Tuxedo Memento Black
  • Accessories - Marvy Large Oval Punch and Marvy Large Scallop Oval Punch
  • Copic Markers - R81, R83, R85, RV00, RV02, RV04, RV13, W0, W2, and W4
I am submitting this card to the following challenges:

Mark's Finest Papers - Inspiration Challenge - Photo

  11. I dont see why you are so disappointed with the results. i think you hit a home run with both challenges

  12. I just love that pretty piece of cake! Yes, 3-D's later changed their name to Inque Boutique and then went out of business. They really did have some pretty stamps and I still use the ones I have. It is tough when you work, isn't it? I was so glad when I cut back to 4 days a week.

  13. What a great take on the challenge ...
