MTSC27 - Dual Submission

This is my submission and my son Garrett's submission for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC27 for this week. Didn't Garrett do a wonderful job on his card? He used to stamp with me all the time when he was younger but now that he is 9 he rarely comes in to my stamp room except to talk to me. He has been sick since last Friday and didn't feel like doing much else besides stamping. How lucky for me!!

I pulled out the new set Love Owl-ways from Stampin' Up! that you can get starting today from the new Spring/Summer catalog. I cut the white oval with my Coluzzle but the Rose Red mat around it was cut by hand. The mailbox and owl were both stamped with Black Brilliance ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. After coloring them with my Copics I cut them out and adhered them with dimensionals. The designer paper under the focal image is from the Raspberry Tart designer pack from SU. The cardbase is Rose Red and the background piece is Pretty in Pink and it has been embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. The focal image has been pierced using a Paper Piercer and SU's Mat Pack. The flower border is a Martha Stewart border punch. The sentiment is stamped with Black Brilliance ink and also embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the Word Window punch and attached a heart brad for "prettiness". I finished it off with Pink Grosgrain Ribbon.

Garrett's card has a Real Red cardbase. The other cardstock colors are Green Galore and Elegant Eggplant. He picked these colors out himself. He has his Mom's eye for bright colors. LOL! He colored the butterfly from the SU set Pretty Amazing with Only Orange and Pumpkin Pie SU Markers. He also pierced his focal image with a Paper Piercer and SU's Mat Pack. He added designer brads on the Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon. He cut out his white oval with the Coluzzle too.

Don't forget to stop by Mercy's blog and play along with the sketch. When uploading to a public gallery please make sure and use the keyword "MTSC27".

Thanks for coming by to check me, I mean us, out today. Hope you have a great week.

You snuck it in early, Pam!! And what a little artist you have there with Garrett! What a clever way to use the brads on the ribbon like that! Too precious!

We must've been on the same "wavelength" this week because I used owls too! *WINK*
