TAMIKO'S THURSDAY TEASER - A SKETCH CHALLENGE!

Good morning happy crafters!  It's Thursday, and time once again for Tamiko's Thursday Teaser.  Our assignment this week is a sketch challenge.  I love that because it makes it easier to get started.  This is what I came up with:
This image is from CC Rubber Stamps and is called Nora On A Swing!  You can get her at Tamiko's Online store here, or click on her store icon on my sidebar.  Isn't she cute?!!! After stamping this image with Memento tuxedo black on PTI cardstock, I colored with Copics, added some Prisma Ultra Fine Glitter to her wings with my 2-way glue pen, then cut the branch and Nora sitting on the swing separately, and joined it back to the branch with black crochet thread.
I mounted just the branch with foam tape for dimension and some space so Nora's swing and feet are dangling away from the panels.  It's hard to read but the sentiment says, "have a swingin' time" and I thought it was perfect for this image.
This is a partial side view of my card.  I was hoping to capture the space between the swing and the card but it was difficult.  Please check out the wonderful creations the rest of Tamiko's Creative Team designed by going here, and leave them some love. 
I have some great news to share with you!  As a "heads up," for next week's Tamiko's Thursday Teaser on September 16th, it will be a CHALLENGE!  That's right!  That means you get to participate and win a prize!  The challenge will be an ALTERED GREETING FARM image on either a 3-D project OR on a card, the choice is yours.  For example, you will need two GF images, and you can take, say, the head from one and put it on the body of another.  That simple! So get your Greeting Farm stamps out.  If you don't have any, you can purchase what you need from Tamiko's online store.  Remember, if your order is $25 or more, you get FREE shipping (US only, sorry).  Let's have some fun starting next Thursday.  This challenge will run to the end of the month, September 30, 2010, and the winner will be announced on Tamiko's blog.  Check back next Thursday for more details and some sample projects by Tamiko's Creative Team.  We look forward to your participation and some FUN!
