Sketching It Out

I’ve made a couple of cards, this time for two sketch based challenges.

My first card is for CAS(E) This Sketch #135

CAS(E) This Sketch #135I started with the bunny from Mama Elephant Honey Bunny. After stamping it in Antique Linen distress ink, I watercolored it using Inktense pencils. I then stamped the carrot and the party hat using Memento Tangelo, Pear Tart, Sweet Plum. For the sentiment, I cut the upper portion of the panel using WPlus9 Scalloped Border and stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then added the dashed lines using Copic Multiliner. For adhering the bunny, I used scraps I had from coloring other cards – they make a fantastic backdrop, don’t they! šŸ˜‰

CAS(E) This Sketch 135Now, for my second card, for Retro Sketches Challenge #176

Retro Sketches Challenge #176I used pattern papers from Best of K & Company from K & Company for the background. I then stamped the Penny Black Dazzlers using Faber Castell green ink, Memento Bamboo Leaves, Memento Rich Cocoa, fuzzy cut them and adhered them on die cut a circle to create dimension. I then cut the lacy border usingĀ Joy Crafts Lacey Border, stamped the sentiment from a stamp set fromĀ The Craft’s Meow (forgot its name!) usingĀ Memento Rich Cocoa and adhered all the pieces together. I then added some pearls for embellishment.

Retro Sketches 176And that’s my two cards for the sketch challenges! šŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!
