Playing With the New "Stuff!"

It's Wednesday and at Splitcoast that means it's time for the new card sketch. I started doing the sketches about 4 or 5 weeks back and am loving it. It's a great way to get some new layouts and of course ideas from the posts that others leave on their creations. I have certain layouts I use over and over and it's SO refreshing to get something new to try and maybe stick with for a while. And if you're like me you'll use it over and over and over!!! SO in this case change is good. And those who know me know I don't handle changes very well! But I manage to accept it and move on!!!!!! Like I have a choice! LOL

SO my card for today was done using the new set "Zoofari" that will be in the new catalog on July 1st. I wonder if we'll get the catalogs early since the first is on a Sunday???????

I followed the sketch layout on Splitcoast using the vertical line and circle on a full background. Once I decided what I wanted to use for stamps it was pretty easy. I wanted a "safari" looking background so I used the "Waxed Paper" resist technique on the Ruby Red card stock. I added some splatter to the More Mustard card stock and my layer was done with Whisper White and Old Olive and of course Basic Black for the outline layers. I used a punch to create the scallops on the black vertical piece. I added some words and taped it all together. A pretty colorful and simple card.

If you have never tried the SplitCoast Sketch Challenge and you have some time, give it a try. There's a new layout every Wednesday! Lots of fun!!

Thank you for stopping by!
