Ok, so here is the sketch.. I hope you like it, I have been trying out a different software to make my computer sketches. I am really new at computer sketches anyway, but the couple I have done seemed flat - so I played with a Scrapbook program and made this one. At least it isn't flat looking!
Even though I can't win the prize I just had to make a card with the sketch. I pulled out one of my new Sarah Kay images "First Kiss", just love this one, that hat is so fun to color. I used my Copics and Sakura Souffle pens, then high lighted with white gel pen.
I then found two pattern papers from K&Company to use to follow my sketch, and a light brown card stock for the base and image mat.
I inked the edges of all of the pieces of paper, then sewed down everything with a straight stitch.. I went random with this and you know that was more stressful than going as straight! I like how it came out but man, my palms were sweating hoping I didn't really mess up my card.
For the base of the card, I used my Crop-a-dile and the large copper eyelets that came in the box and spaced them across the bottom, then ran a small satin ribbon through the holes meeting and tying into a bow.
The sentiment is from a local stamp company.
So why don't you give the sketch a try - all you have to do is load it into the PCP photo gallery and then comment on the Stampavie Group that you did so to qualify.
Hubby is off today - between him, my MIL and I we have a long list of errands and to do's - and I bet they are both already tapping their toes wondering if I am ready yet - Ahhh nope still in my jammies - so I better get going! Hope you have a great Monday and get some time to get inky!
