Ever struggle with a sketch? I love Bea's sketches, she has more talent in her little finger than I do. I loved this weeks Friday Sketchers project, and was so excited about trying it because it is so different, but since Friday I have been moving things around on this card and it just isn't working. I finally gave up, and just stuck it down. I have come to the conclusion that it is the paper I am not happy with. Ok so here it is out there in the world for all to see, what do you think?
I started with my Sweet Ebony Flowers image, just love that large flower she is holding, that and I love watering cans! I colored her with my Copics, white gel pen and Sakura Glaze Pens.
The pattern paper is from Daisy Bucket Designs, have you see the cool new papers they have that are 12x12 but have 4 different 6x6 papers on one side of the paper, really a great idea! And I really love the patterns and colors, just didn't work for me with this card. The papers have a brown and bright blue color in them, and are two sided so they were perfect for this sketch.
I matched the ribbon with the blue in the paper and the base of the card, and a large darker blue flower that was in my stash. And I do love that mother of pearl button! The sentiment is from Fiskars. I doodled around the edge with a glaze pen trying to help it for me....
Well Hubby is off today, he is going to start really working on the house. We are adding a small area on the back, I need some space to store Hubby's "stuff". Fishing Poles, Bags of Fishing Tackle, you know guy stuff. And he is working on my Laundry area. Then next year... all fingers and toes crossed... he will add a space and front porch on our house. The space.... a 10x20 craft space!!! All mine, not a corner in the bedroom!
Hope you have a great Monday!
