Celebrate BIG!--2nd Day of Sneak Peeks at Taylored Expressions



Today the TE Design Team is sharing their sneaks of a new set called Sweet Occasions concepted by Jami Sibley. I was lucky enough to be involved illustrating this unique addition to the Whimsical Wishes line of stamp sets. Get ready to colour!!! Jami wanted four large images with fun and inspiring words--call this the outie--paired with an innie, additional sentiments with mini images for that special touch on the inside of the card.



I've chosen 'Celebrate' and matched it with 'Happy Birthday with a cherry on top!' and the mini ice cream sundae included in the 14-image set. I used a previous TE sketch (TECC59) to get the juices flowing. I need more colourful cards for the kids occasions in my stash, so this one is perfect. Henri probably talked me into buying this fruit-infused, patterned paper--it's quite a departure from my usual style! I pulled green, purple, pink and black from the paper for my colour scheme and coloured the image with copics to coordinate.
Thanks for dropping by on your way today!
