Paper Smooches July Sparks Challenge


I'm hooked on PAPER SMOOCHES STAMPS. This is a new challenge from Paper Smooches.
Here's all the deets for the JULY PAPER SMOOCHES SPARKS CHALLENGE. It's fun just to play with their images but you'll find lots of inspiration and amazing prizes for this challenge.

I'm also trying to play in the Dare To Get Dirty 2011 Week Challenges open to all SCS FAN CLUB MEMBERS.
For the Paper Smooches July Sparks Challenge...I followed the very middle sketch.
I used three stamp sets HANG UPS, FOLKal POINTS and SANTA PAWS.

The leaves at the top is made by using the large leaf from the Hang Ups set and masking it. The sentiment is also from Hang Ups.

Apples are made using the apple from FOLKal Points set. I masked the heart with masking tape and stamped onto dp. I cut out minus the stem and leaves. I drew the faces on myself and punched out 1/4" circles for cheeks.

The stitch lines are from the set Santa Paws.


RECIPE:
STAMPS:Hang Ups, FOLKal Points, Santa Paws (Paper Smooches)
PAPER:Cottonball White (Clear Dollar Stamps), Country Drive (Echo Park)
INK:Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Walnut Stain, Copics YG06, G09, G14, G05, ZIG Milennium pen .05 black
ACCESSORIES:Googly Eyes, Tim Holtz Blending Tool, Martha Stewart Grass Border Punch, 1/4" hole punch, Scotch dimensional foam tape, Post-it Notes
TECHNIQUES:Masking, Distressing
