Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 270-I Look Up to You

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  I inked up the sweet bear duo from Mama Elephant's Bear Hugs set for this one.

I Look Up to You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Mama Elephant
I made the layout into a nighttime scene by layering a green curved strip cut with one of ME's Landscape Trio dies on the bottom edge of a navy card base.  For the moon, I die cut a circle from yellow cardstock, then debossed it with a polka dotted pattern to look like craters.  The bear duo was colored with Copic markers and die cut with the matching die, then adhered to the cardfront using foam tape.

I stamped the set's "I look up to you" sentiment near the top of the cardfront in gold ink.  So it would stand out a bit more, I heat embossed it in gold.  I added a few gold sequin "stars" around the words to fill in the sky a bit and add a little more sparkle, too.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on the SSSC blog.  Be sure to stop by the blog to check out what the SSSC team has created using the sketch.  And, don't forget to check in on Wednesday to see one of our favorite cards made with the sketch.

  1. Oh Lori this is fantastic. You totally captured this sketch in the best possible way! This could be the cover of a children's book. :)
