This weeks challenge is being posted at my New Summer Hours post time. My son needs to talk a summer reading class and I will not be able to post at noon for the next couple months, so I am thinking that I will actually post at night so that my readers that use a feedblitz will actually get it on Monday and not Tuesday! Then I will come back around lunch time-- little earlier or later depending on the day-- and post all the players. How is that?
I really like today's sketch. I actually make these sketches from all sorts of different things, cereal boxes, posters, labels -- and after I make them I don't look at them or think about them until the day I need to post, lol. See this way it is even a challenge for me. Honestly sometimes I open the sketch and say to myself "what the heck am I gonna do with that!" --pretty weird since I make them. Anyway as I said I did like this one and will probably use it again real soon. I had lots of ideas but went with the first one for this card. So here is the sketch.....
And now for my card. I really don't use my pretties kit enough because it is usually buried somewhere in my studio. So I have put it in the open and have been trying to use it. Hence the focal point of my card. The striped section behind the flowers is actually a clear acrylic picture frame with stripes. I thought it would be fun to use a background stamp for a change and stamp it twice so it is repeated behind the acrylic frame too. I really like it--fast and easy
Paper: Brocade Blue and Only Orange
Ink: Brilliant Blue
Other: Pretties Kit, Only Orange marker, Brocade Blue brad, rub ons, acrylic frame, white gel pen, dimensionals
So don't forget to come on back around lunchtime to see the other players. They always do a fabulous job so you won't want to miss their creations. See ya then.
By the way if you would like to play along it would make my day. After you post your card leave a comment here with a link so that I can share it with all of my readers. If you post on SCS please use TSSC24.
