Hi there again,

yep I'm back again with my regularly scheduled post for Makeesha Byl's challenge. Its been quite fun this week to do two versions of the sketch Keesh set for the challenge this week. They are sooo different! If you want to see the first version just click here. So first up here is the sketch.

I started with the idea of making a birthday card for a boy (turning four - hopefully thats obvious;). I decided to try using the three primary colours so brace yourself this is BRIGHT.

I told you...

I started with a Pacific Point base, layered that with a Real Red, then split the top layer between Whisper white rolled with Yoyo Yellow using Builder Bits (great wheel but long retired). The bottom half is pure Yoyo Yellow but embossed this time with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. To follow the sketch (and hide the join) I added a strip of Real Red layered with some Pacific Point ribbon. For the main panel I used a very cute robot stamp I have. I stamped him three times, first in Pacific Point, which I used as the base, then in Real Red and Yoyo Yellow. To the Pacific Point base I added a Red tummy and Yellow hands and feet, all mounted on dimensionals. To finish him off I added a little red party hat and silver brads for eyes. Then I mounted him onto a scalloped Real Red rectangle. For the sentiment I stamped out four in Versamark and embossed with White, adding a blue star and silver brad to accent it, then tucked it into the ribbon band. The final touch are three little stamped red "screwheads" mounted up on dimensionals.

Thanks for visiting (again) this week,
