Wednesday Sketch Challenge

This sketch was the perfect layout for this canoe stamp. I thought I would play with it one last time before I sell it. I am in such need of space in my workroom. I have LOTS of stamps that I really need to get rid of. I REALLY need the space.

This stamp is by Creative Impressions and it's called "Two Canoes." I've used it a lot and taught a lot of watercolor classes with it.

For my card I used markers and a blender pen to color in the areas. It went very quickly too. I did have to cut the image down a bit to fit in the area I needed for the sketch. There is more to the top of the tree and more to the pines on the left side.

I stamped the image with VersaMark and used black embossing powder. It makes it much easier to color in.

The decorative papers are from a pack I had gotten a LONG time ago at Joann's. It's called "Old World." I thought it would look masculine enough to go with the canoes.

It was another fun sketch. Give it a try if you have time!!!

Thank you for visiting today. Have a wonderfully creative day!
