Today when the fog lifts it's supposed to be nearly 70 degrees and sunny, and I'm ready after what seems like a week of rain!
This card was made for Sketch Challenge 220 on SCS and also for last week's Ocean's 11 Challenge to make a sky on our card. Unfortunately my sky doesn't show up well in this photo, but it's sponged with pastels, using a cloud template that I purchased from Rosie's Roadshow.
The image is from Whipper Snapper and is stamped on Georgia Pacific White with Memento Ink, then colored with Copics. I have been experimenting with my Copics. They say you need three colors in close proximity of numbers for shading, but because Copics lay down layer on layer, I have been trying to just use the same marker and go over the darker areas more times. I think it works if you can't afford to buy all the shades you need in each color family.
The sketch today was great!!! I will definitely use this one again! I used SU!'s Certainly Celery DP from last year (now discontinued but replaced with a different one). I layered my strips on GPBlack, and then on GPWhite. That all got mounted on a GPB base. The image panel is popped up on dimensionals, and has stickles added, as well as a ribbon through a slot punched hole, and a layered flower in the corner. I love these springy colors.... always a sucker for pastels!
Thanks for taking a peek at my card! Ocean's 11 gals... I'm late but I got the sky one done. I was going to emboss my panels and get the third one in too but decided to do a seperate one for challenge 3... hopefully today I'll have time to do another!
I hope everyone has a happy spring!
