It's A "Classic" Sketch Challenge

The Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast today was an interesting one. I'm not use to working with so many angles. It's a bit crooked and I even stamped a bit crooked too. I was going to fix that but I have to keep reminding myself that it IS a handmade card!!! I tell people this all the time and I need to start listening to myself. They don't have to be perfect! SO this card is by no means perfect. But I do like the colors.

Last weeks challenge was my "Wedding Bell Blues" card and I still need to post that at Splitcoast.

For this card I followed the sketch for the layout. I used Basic Black, Not Quite Navy and Whisper White card stock. I used Not Quite Navy ink and I sponged in Not Quite Navy. I used the "Flannel Print" and "Canvas" background stamps. After I stamped the truck and the words I sponged over the white lightly to tone it down just a little. It was just too bright alone. I assembled it and now it's here!!

Thank you for stopping by!

I love this sketch...you did a great job with it! I love these trucks. I'm sad that they're retiring.
