Here’s my final card for the weekend … a joint venture between Paper Smooches Sparks, where it’s Cool Shades week (orange, purple, kraft, teal), CAS(E) this Sketch where N@Ali is our sketch artist, and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, where there’s a Halloween Colours theme …

I used the sketch upside down, and stamped the PS sentiment over a PTI sketch banner that I made narrower by masking each side with post its.  The PS cute bird was stamped, coloured with Promarkers and trimmed out.  I added Glossy Accents to his eyes and once that was dry, popped him up on dimensionals.  The addition of a few previously kraft-tinted clear sequins was the finishing touch.

I’m not sure where the weekend’s gone, but gone it has … and it’s a bit late to go off on my travels round the blogosphere again tonight, so I’ll be catching up tomorrow.  I do hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend, and had the chance to have some lovely creative time.  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are, as always a delight!  Anita 🙂

    What a fun and fabulous way to use those colors–and all those challenges, wow. I love your little bird–he reminds me of the Froot Loops bird from when I was a kid (do you even have Froot Loops in France? If not, you are not missing much)
