another sketch

This was a card for Natasha's sketch challenge as part of the Dare to Get Dirty celebration. This was a really easy sketch, and the guidelines were pretty lenient. I pulled out a stamp I hadn't used in a long time from Summer by the Sea. I stamped the image in stazon on watercolor paper. Then I lightly misted the paper and sponged bashful blue around the top part for sky and certainly celery on the lower part for land. Then I colored the image the same way I described in my last post. On the dress, I only used lavender lace, but on the hat I used apricot appeal and more mustard. It is so easy to blend the colors on the watercolor paper. I sponged the edges with lavender lace and backed the image with a black piece that I punched one end with my Martha Stewart doily lace punch.

The celery piece is embossed in my cuttlebug with distressed lines embossing folder. I added some piercing across the bottom of the card. The image panel is raised on dimensional foam tape. The ribbon was black and white, so I colored it with a copic marker (the closest match that I had).

supplies:
stamps: summer by the sea, small script
ink: jet black stazon, bashful blue, certainly celery, lavender lace, various markers
paper: basic black, lavender lace, certainly celery, watercolor
other: mat pack & piercing tool, cuttlebug, distressed lines embossing folder, blender pen, sponge, ribbon, doily lace punch (Martha Stewart), dimensional foam tape

Thanks for stopping by.
