And here's the optional sketch, which I chose not to use this week:
Fiesta! Well, I don't have many "fiesta" style stamps, but I did have some fun papers left from the Birthday Bonanza suite, as well as a cute little chameleon stamp, so here we go:
I stamped and colored Mr Chameleon in with some Blends, adding a hat from the Bonanza Buddies stamp set, stamped in Calypso Coral; I outlined the hat with a Basic Black marker and added some Wink of Stella to jazz it up. I will give you a warning....the Wink of Stella will cause the water-based marker to smudge, as you can see!
He's still cute though, especially with that pompom on his hat! I added some banners and sequins, then added a sentiment panel, stamped with a past Paper Pumpkin stamp in Poppy Parade, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral. After stamping and trimming, I mounted it on a Daffodil Delight mat and added a stitched scalloped panel of Bermuda Bay:
I stamped another Paper Pumpkin sentiment on the inside and added some leftover banners:
I think it's pretty fiesta-ive! I hope you'll play along with our Inspired By challenge, you can use the photo, or the photo and the sketch! Can't wait to see what you create and share!
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
