2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge No. 15

Here we are again with another 2RedBananas' Banana Split Sunday Challenge, which is a sketch challenge that 2RB is sponsoring on the CPS blog. Check out both blogs for more information. There will be a randomly awarded prize for one participant on each of the blogs, so be sure to enter on both blogs for two chances to win, and to see the great samples by both DTs.

For this challenge I made a card for my nephew, Christopher's 2nd birthday. The card base is kraft CS with DP by Rhonna Farrer for Autumn Leaves. The sentiment was made using MM glitter letter stickers (I love those stickers).

I stamped the image, which, believe it or not, was a penguin from the Heartfelt Friends stamp set by 2RedBananas, with StazOn ink. I altered it {slightly} to create this little alien using watercolor pencils and Stardust pens.

The three star brads in the corner were pink, but I inked them with StazOn so they would match a little better.

This was a fun card to make, and it goes to show that you can do just about anything with a stamp image to better fit your project. I hope you'll go to 2RB's blog and the CPS blog to join us in our challenge this week.
