Blogger Challenge: Week 271

This week's blogger challenge is a sketch.  I went clean and simple on this one, using the Bright Idea set from Technique Tuesday again.

I stamped one of the set's hanging pendant lamp images in gray ink on a white oval panel, then added a few details to the image.  The bulb is colored with a Copic marker, then covered with a light coat of Glossy Accents for a glass-like look.  The lampshade is studded with a few clear crystals for a fun, feminine touch.

I used a bright patterned paper from a My Mind's Eye paper pad for the panel underneath the image.  I machine stitched it to a rose mat before setting it on the light yellow card base.  I stamped the set's "you're brilliant" sentiment in gray ink on a yellow strip and matted it on a rose strip before adhering it to the cardfront, tucking the right edge underneath the image panel.
