TLT - MY SKETCH!


How exciting - I designed a sketch for the TLT Ladybugs and they each created something with my sketch - how cool is THAT? 

Here is the sketch:



And here's my creation....ah, the joy  of a sketch; it's just a jumping off point!  :D

You can see I flipped the sketch AND didn't use a sentiment - wonder if Queen Whiplash is going to use her whip on me?  Hmmm...the chances I take sometimes, I'm tellin' ya!

I used Roaster Nikki - I LOVE this image; absolutely adorable and SO MUCH FUN to color!  As our youngest daughter was critiquing my work yesterday she stated "there's only one problem"; I'm like "really, what is it?"; she said "her car doesn't have a review mirror".  LMBO

The simplicity and honesty of kids - gotta love 'em!

Roaster Nikki is so darn fashionable, don't you think?  AND she has flower power going on - she has got it all!  I used 2 different colors of crinkle ribbon which I purchased from Mish Mash's etsy shop - LOVE that stuff, I don't use it near enough!  Of course, I ruffled it up; just love that look!

Can you see the windshield & lights?  I added Glossy Accents and just love the cool effect it adds.

The Ladybugs have done a GREAT job with the sketch, please hop on over and take a peek at their creations (HERE) AND for those crafters reading this, won't you join us?  There are always great prizes and bragging rights to be won!  Don't be shy, get your mojo on and let it shine!

And, you've got exactly one week left to take advantage of the 15% discount using the code CB2010 in the Ladybug Crafts Ink online store.  They would make a great stocking stuff & don't forget, there is free postage WORLD WILD for orders over £20!!



Thanks for stopping by; hope you're having a great week!  Hugs, ~M.

I loved your sketch and might even give it another go once I've some more time too. Your card is stunning!!!! I want a car like Nikki's!! The windhshield and lights look amazing and the papers, embossing, ribbons and colours are all stunning!
