Beate's Weekend Sketch!!


Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Labour Day weekend but it's back to school today!!! Booooooo!! I hate this day.....most parents can't wait to send their little angels back to the teachers in September, but I'd prefer to have Emmy home with me all year long!!! I don't think she'd go for that, mind you!!

Anyway, here is a card I created for Beate's Weekend Sketch!! I haven't been able to participate in a while, but this weekend I actually got quite a bit done. Thank goodness for a holiday!!

I love sketches as that takes one portion out of the guessing game for me. It takes so long for me to create something from scratch, that when one part of the equation is decided for me, I think my 'mojo' moves more freely!!

So I started out by choosing my stamp, by Penny Black and my paper, which is Spring Showers, I believe by SU. So I coloured my image using my SU markers in the colours from the paper, then did little dots around the image. I used my CM cutting system to cut out all the circles and then used my corner rounder freehand to do the scalloped edge. The card is a 5 1/4 inch Bashful Blue square that I ran through my Cuttlebug using the D'vine Swirl embossing folder. I matted the strip of dp with Blush Blossom and used an A Muse sentiment, stamping it in Chocolate Chip ink, punching it out with my Large Oval punch and then sponging Blush Blossom ink around it and the scalloped piece too. I added three Prima Flowers in coordinating colours with a silver brad to match the hardware at the bottom and added some yummy tan gingham that I received from Lindsey in a prize pack. Then I pop dotted the main image and .... I'm done!

Hey!! I just noticed that I'm over 40,000 visitors!!! Wow!! Does that mean it's time for another challenge????? Hmmmmm. Whaddya think?
