Watt's Up?

Here's my card for today's SCS sketch challenge.  I revisited an older sketch from the archives--sketch 169--because I thought it would be a perfect fit for the new Technique Tuesday Bright Idea stamp set that's been sitting on my table for a few days, just waiting to be inked up.

I stamped one of the set's light bulb images in black ink on a white panel, stamping the long "wire" a second time to extend its length to better fit the image panel.  The bulb's colored with Copic markers and the center's filled in with some Stickles for a fun sparkle.

I used a trendy yellow and gray color scheme for the card, making each of the panels underneath a bright yellow to match the bulb and matting them on gray for a nice pop against the white panel.  The chevron patterned paper is from a new Jillibean Soup collection that has both chevrons and dots--my favorites!  You'll be seeing a lot of it . . .  A little yellow baker's twine is wrapped around the smallest panel, secured with a bow.  I considered a few different spots for the sentiment before finally stamping the "watt's up?" sentiment along the side of the wire extending from the bulb.
