A Quick Sketch and a Get Away!



 My turn with this week's Friday sketch over at the Paper Craft Planet, and keeping it simple once again! I have to say that I cheated a bit here. Instead of creating the sketch and then creating the card, I went the opposite way. I had a pretty card that I had created for the Stampendous October 2012 catalog, and I thought that it would make a fun sketch...plus I got out of making a new card when I have absolutely no extra time right now! It's a girl-escape weekend! Woo hoo!

I created my version with a tent-fold card, so that the stamped banner could fold slightly around the edge. Don't you love the wavy sentiment from the Thoughtful Wishes Perfectly Clear set? Stampendous has a few of these styled in Fran Seiford's own hand-writing. The layered oval has been stamped with Cling Bluebird Branch, colored with Lyra Aquacolor...like crayons, but you can watercolor with them! Just use a wet brush over the colored areas to soften the colors. I hope this card provides you the incentive to break out your creative toys and play along with this week's sketch challenge. Upload yours to the Paper Craft Planet photo gallery with the SK041213 tag. Have a great weekend!

Beautiful Pam and I love the look of the coloring technique for the birds. Ive not used the Lyras ever, but I'll investigate them. Have a fun weekend!
