I Chews You


Hi and welcome to another fabulous challenge from SugarPea Designs.  This week we have a vintage themed inspiration photo as well as a gorgeous CAS sketch.



If you follow my blog, it won't surprise you that I followed the sketch!  While I love vintage, I'm not very good at vintage-style cardmaking, so I stuck with what I know and came up with this fun card:


It's Pete's and my 25th anniversary of our engagement this month - yep, we've been engaged for 25 years and never bothered getting married - you can't rush these things :)  Anyway, we're going away for a weekend soon and I plan on giving him this card.  I gave the couple non-zombie skin tones as I didn't want to frighten Pete away haha!


The card is pretty self-explanatory.  I colored the image with Copics and mounted onto a Soft Stone card base adding a thin strip of black top and bottom to frame the image.  The heart comes from the Talk is Chic set and was stamped in Lipstick ink and fussy-cut.  I then colored it with clear Wink of Stella.

Thanks for visiting!
Here are the guidelines to join in our challenge:

  • Create a new card or project using the sketch provided.
