InStyle Stamps Sketch Challenge 13

Hi all,

It is the first Wednesday of the month, and that means another awesome sketch challenge at the InStyle Stamps blog!  The DT had an extra challenge, which was to make the sketch using a T-Slide card.  If you have never made one, there is a tutorial on SCS HERE.  If you are a fan of the Chloe images from ISS, you will die when you see the Chloes that Virginia is releasing this month.  We will also have a killer release week for these images come the week of September 20.  We will have lots of new images to showcase, and they will be released into the store that week!
Here's the sketch:

My base is Basic Black, and all the DSP is from the Basic Grey pack called Scarlett Letter.  It has a lot of nice black, red, and gray papers, and the letters at the top are from the same package.  I love the vintage and distressed look of the papers.  I thought the striped paper went well with a carnival or circus theme.

My image is Clown Chloe, to be released later this month at ISS as a digi image.  I absolutely LOVE this image!  I love the ruffles especially.  I printed her onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out.  I also added some sparkle to her shoes with a black Atyou Spica glitter pen.  I mounted her onto the oval panel (Kraft and white CS cut with Oval Nesties), and that was mounted onto the square panel (Kraft, White, and Basic Black CS, cut with Square Nesties, with 2 strips of DSP on the top). 

Here is what it looks like when the slider is pulled - sorry about the picture.  I didn't really make sure I pulled it out straight before I snapped the shot, so it looks a little crooked.  I assure you, it's not : )  The sentiment is an SU rub-on.

You should definitely head over to the ISS blog to check out what the other DT members have done, and to enter your own creation using our sketch!  If you use an ISS image for your project, you have a chance to win 2 free digis, and if you use an outside image, you can still win 1 digi if you are chosen!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
