#TSOT424 Try Stampin' on Tuesday Sketch Challenge for 3rd of September, 2019

Here is my card for this week at Try Stampin' on Tuesday - #TSOT424:

The sketch is: 

The optional theme is: The Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe:

I have turned the sketch around a bit and also used the bottom line of the Joy of Sets Tic Tac Toe: die cuts (balloon, string and banner), glitter (I tried giving the sentiment sparkle with Wink of Stella, then glitter card stock for the banner, balloon and string and then Stickles for my purple line on the side!), family (I have a family of animals from La-La Land Crafts).
The stamps that I have used are from the brand new 5th Birthday Celebration Club La-La Land Crafts August 2019 kit. I have stamped the family of animals and two of the sentiments using Tuxedo Black Memento ink on to X-Press It Blending card.
The images have been coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • poodle - W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, RV00, RV17, RV19
  • hamster - E30, E31, E33, E35, R00, R20, YG03, YG23, BG53, BG57
  • panda - 0, C00, C0, C1, C5, C7, C9, 100, R00, R20
  • hippo - W0, W1, W3, W5, R00, R20, RV00 (nails), V22, V25, V28
  • chihuahua - E30, E31, E33, R00, R20
  • moose - E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, R00, R20, C9 (hoof)
  • bear - W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9, E30, E31, E33, E35
  • hat - B12, B14, B16, clear Wink of Stella
  • shadow - BV20, BV23, BV25
  • background - BV0000, BV000, BV00
  • outline - V28
As mentioned above, I have die cut a banner from black glitter core cardstock and then also a balloon from pink glitter core cardstock and the sting in black glitter core cardstock. The banner is the Pennant Banner from Close to My Heart and the balloon and string are one of the die cuts included in the August 2019 Club La-La Land Crafts kit.
I have adhered the banner on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions, then adhered the coloured image, along with the balloon and string. Then to fit with the sketch I have added a line of Cosmic Stickles on the left under the balloon. 

Here is a close-up of the colouring:

  3. How cute, love these little characters. Thanks for joining #JOSTTT009 challenge x

  4. Thanks for joining in with our grid challenge at #JOSTTT009 his month. This card makes such a great use of the grid elements and it's so different from all of the other entries so far. These characters are so cute and the way you've coloured the stamps is lovely, it's not a skill I've mastered at all yet but examples like this inspire me to keep trying. x

  5. Such a great fun card and a great use of our grid - that family of animals is so cute - I'm envious of all those Copic colours - I'm still on the fence about needing some but there are so many to choose from where do I begin? Thanks for joining us at JOSTTT009 this month - hope to see you next month.

  6. LOL! What a fantastic critter grouping of well-wishers! Lou, your coloring and depth are beautiful - it's a wonderful card. So glad I got to see your critter project showcased at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge. Hope to see more of your creations in the future.
