TSG55- Make an Impression

This week’s challenge over at the There She Goes blog, is being brought to us by Jessica! She challenged us to create a card using line art as your background. This is a fun technique to use when you might not feel like coloring or are short on time. Larger line art type images (like the cafĂ© from Daily Grind) work great! Simply stamp your image in a light colored ink for the background. You can then use dimensionals to add smaller images (that have been colored and cut out) on top of the background image.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes line art as a background, then go to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (May 24th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG55 so we can check out your beautiful work!

So, I'm not sure I did this right, but I tried, lol!! I used my She's A Lady set, yet again. Love it!!! I stamped my image with Memento Rich Cocoa on a piece of Pink Pirouette. I then stamped my bags, and poodle on an MFT Perfect Panel and then colored the dog with my Copics. My bags were paper pieced with different pieces of Parisian Summer DSP. My ribbon is SU, as well as my CS, DSP, and punches used for my sentiment. The brad's came from Michael's.
