I am having a great time playing along with their talented design team each week!
Not only does From the Heart Stamps have some incredibly adorable images, but each week at From the Heart Stamps Blog a sketch challenge is held. It is called a Sketch Challenge with a tWiSt: a sketch is provided, but so is an additional requirement. Don't worry.....no need to feel overwhelmed with rules and restrictions! You can choose to use the sketch, OR you can create using the tWiSt....or you can do BOTH! :)
Here is this weeks sketch:
Sketch with a tWiSt #071
tWiSt: Spotlight Technique
Here's a really cool thing about this sketch challenges: EVERYONE IS A WINNER! You can earn a $1 discount code toward any digi image in their store. No, not by being a random winner, but just by entering! And even better, yet.......you can use multiple codes toward purchases in their store! So, if you play three weeks in a row, you can buy a new digi for only $ .50! Play four times in a row, and "buy" a new digi with all four of your codes without spending a dime out of your own pocket!
See......I told you that everyone is a winner there! :)
Here's another cool thing about From the Heart Stamps.......they also run a month-long challenge in addition to their weekly sketch challenges. "Why is that cool?" you ask??? Because if you use the monthly image, you will be emailed next months image
Okay....now that I've explained my excitement about this great digi-stamp company, let's move on to my card for this week. I really struggled this week with the sketch. it was one of those sketches that just was not falling in line with Mr. Mojo, you know?! Add on the fact that it was a last-minute card coming home from a vaca only two days prior to deadline.......well, enough whining, right?! Let's get on with it! lol!
This week I am using the sketch AND the tWiSt. :)
I chose to play with the super chic Bunny Hello image on my card. I colored my image digitally, with PSE. I did do the Spotlight Technique, using a window shape. I created my card base, window layers and 'hello' with my Silhouette Portrait. I added a few punched butterflies and some rhinestones to bling it up a bit.
The inside of the card contains my image and a sentiment.
