TSGA and ISSC12 with Melyssa Connolly

Yeah!!! I'm so looking forward to this week at iSpy Sketches!! We're highlighting Melyssa Connoly (croppixie @ SCS). Melyssa is the brains behind Whimsie Doodles (a fantastic site for the cutest digis around) and many of us girls at There She Goes are lucky enough to work with her illustrations with her line of stamps there as well.
Have I mentioned I'm excited about Melyssa as our "Ispy" for this week?
We fell in love with this card and knew we had to feature it as a sketch.

hehehehe... I had so much fun!

I'm loving this card that I made for this week's There She Goes (Again) as well as this week's Ispy card.  At There She Goes, we're highlighting three sets and I chose to work with LOL Taglines.  It's one of my fave TSG sets but I don't pull it out nearly often enough. I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored it with Tombow Markers. Easy peasy!!! A bit of My Mind's Eye "Follow your Heart: Be Amazing"  and some Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding from Ribbon Carousel and my card is done.  Yeah!!

Here is how to play:
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrap book page or 3D item), based on the sketch provided.Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC12), and link it here with the inlinkz widget below.

  • A new challenge will be posted every Friday at 12:01 AM EST, and you have until noon on Wednesday EST to submit your entry.
  • You may enter as many times as you like, but please provide a newly designed project with a new link for each additional project.
  • We will choose the top 2 creations to be featured in our "Top 2 Thursday" post where we will announce who we have picked :) The winners will receive their very own iSpy Sketches blog badge!
  • Don't forget that you may combine our challenges with others and use supplies from any company that you wish :)
  • Have fun and we look forward to "spying" your creations!
