Introducing Pam and Buster and Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge

In my search for sketch challenges, I found this awesome blog called Mojo Monday Sketch Blog. The weekly sketch challenge actually started out at Poetic Artistry and was recently moved to it's own blog. Since this is the first Monday of the month, this is a judged sketch challenge contest and the winner of the contest wins their choice of any Verve Stamps set up to $24!! I hope it is ok to post the sketch here......If not please let me know!! Here is the sketch.....

And here is my submission......... My image was larger than I thought it was going to be for this sketch, so i had to improvise a bit with what I was working with. One would think that it would have been easier to just use a different stamp.......but NO I was bound and determined to make Pam and Buster work for this card. LOL

For this card I used the retro Pam and Buster stamp from InStyle Stamps. These little ladies are so fun to paper piece, so I paper pieced Pam's dress and headband and Buster's coat. I colored Pam's hair using my Buttercup ctmh marker (since I don't own any copics YET)and her shoes and lips are Blush marker. Buster is colored with a Desert Sand marker and his nose it Bamboo. The little Baby Pink flowers are Edge Anchors from CTMH that are broken in half. pop dotted and have a sparkle on the top. I am not sure if this in my favorite card I have created lately.....but I thought it was sweet enough. It actually looks better in person. You know when you create that WOW card and you really don't care if anyone else likes it?? Well, this is NOT that card. LOL

Supplies for this card:
Stamps: Pam and Buster InStyle Stamps and Say it in Style CTMH
Inks: Blush, Buttercup, Baby Pink, Bamboo, Desert Sand and Smokey Plum
Paper: Basic Grey, Sugared
Embellishments: Cottage Baby Pink Edge Anchors, Just Blooms ctmh, Baby Pink organdy ribbon, and sparkles from Archiver's
Other supplies: Nestabilities, Stampin' Up! punches

Hope you have found some kind of inspiration today!

Thanks for stopping by!!
