Hi everyone! I was extremely lucky to be chosen as the Featured Stamper of Color Throwdown #337, which meant I was invited to join the CT team as their Guest Star Stamper for today's new challenge - yay!   The colours for this week are yellow, white and black.

As soon as I saw the colour combo, I knew I wanted to ink up the cute lightbulb stamp from my The Alley Way Stamps: Lighter Than Air stamp set. I stamped the lightbulb 3 times in Memento Tuxedo Black ink into onto a 105x148mm piece of card I used for Copic colouring, drew in some hanging strings, and then coloured them with Copic markers.

The sentiment comes from the same Lighter Than Air stamp set too, but I only inked the top portion for the front of my card, so that I could stamp the last line of the sentiment inside:

I followed CAS(E) this Sketch #119 for my layout again, but this time I used it upside down:
