Wetlands Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:

Check out this week's sketch:

I was trying to create a birthday card that could be created for a woman or a man. Unfortunately, the picture looks to be more pink/blue - actually it's Crisp Cantaloupe and Lost Lagoon/Night of Navy - which look better together in real life than I imagined!

Flower Pot Designer Series Paper

Card details:

  • Base of card is Crisp cantaloupe
  • Layer of Flower Pot DSP 
  • Color the goose with a Soft Suede marker and the grass with an Old Olive marker
  • Use Circle Framelit Dies to cut out image from Whisper White and Crisp Cantaloupe card stock
  • The greeting is stamped with the Silver Metallic Encore Ink onto Night of Navy card stock and punched out with a 1-3/8" punch
  • Cut a strip of ribbon a little longer than the length of the card and adhere with glue dots
    • One trick that I like to use when making a faux bow: Tie a piece of twine around a section of the ribbon where the bow is going to be adhered. Trim loose ends. When bow is attached it looks like you actually tied it on!
  • Tie a bow and adhere to top of ribbon with glue dots or Tombow Multipurpose Glue
