2 weeks ago, Julie challenged us all with a wonderful sketch. I LOVE sketch challenges, because it takes the hardest part of designing a card out of it for me. I especially love sketches with lots of layers since I tend toward more simply layouts with few layers. I LOVED Julie's sketch!!!
And how appropriate that I chose this stamp set (Rainy Day Friends, currently sold out, but returning SOON!) considering it is pouring rain here right now in California! (Altho, I should have used pink and purple for the umbrella since that is what we have for an umbrella right now!!) It's hard for me to cut the paper smaller than I know the image is, but since I didn't have much space I needed to do that. I kinda like it...gives me more freedom somehow!I colored Sophia in with my aquapainter and ink pads, and used the new Basic Gray Marakesh papers for the dp. I am loving that stuff!!!
Since it is my turn to issue the challenge this week, I am going to challenge the Pretties, and all of who who want to play along, to make a card using a new technique you've never tried before. Need some ideas? Visit the technique pages at Splitcoast for dozens of things to try!! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with. For now though, be sure to visit ALL the Prettie blogs to see everyone else's take on this awesome sketch.
