Maya the Wise Wizard

Hello again! This is my second post for the day, so please scroll down to see the other.

If it's Wednesday, that also means it's time for the La-La Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week, our five Guest Designers chose the challenge. Karin requested that we use two different patterned papers; Kimmi chose the color combo of red, brown and cream (I know my red is on the crimson side, and I ended up throwing in a bit of orange, but hopefully it qualifies!); Marcea asked us for some embossing... either dry or heat; Paul likes scallops; and Sue threw in paper piercing for good measure. Yikes, this was truly a challenge for me! I now have more respect for those of you who do several challenges at once... I've seen someone go as high as 22 challenges in one card. Yowser! I didn't even think there were 22 things you could do with a card! {LOL}

Never wanting to pass up a good sketch challenge myself, I used this week's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #84. My image is the very wise Wizard Maya. I colored her up with my Copics, and used my Buttermilk atYou Spica pen on the stars and moons in her robe.

The DP, cardstock and buttons are from a retired Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients kit... Cosmo Cricket DP and Prism cardstock. I checked and rechecked, and I believe I managed to meet all of the challenge requirements. Yay!

I hope you'll join us this week for our challenge. Come on now, be brave! If I did it, you certainly can!

Thanks for stopping by to visit. I hope you have a very wise day!

Love this wizard.... I think he'd be a good one to ask for a fun spell (like fill my fridge with chocolate please).... I think you've done a SUPER job fitting in all the requirements, I can only ever attempt one at a time!

lots of love....

Awesome card Lisa, and it is even better in real life!!! I really didn't think of using this stamp for a non-Halloween card, what a great idea!!
