Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

I have not done a Sketch Challenge at SplitCoast since before Christmas. Life just got too busy then and things are slowing down a bit here now.

This was a very fun sketch. You can find this Wednesday's sketch here. I print out the sketch sample and measure from that.

The background, main card color is Close to Cocoa. On top of that I added a piece of Always Artichoke that I sponged with Close to Cocoa. On top of that is a piece of Groovy Guava that I stamped with the Linen background and Close to Cocoa ink. I also sponged the edges with the same color. I used the tag punch on the corners. I put these two pieces together and added the brads and some Wild Wasabi ribbon. Then I measured and cut out the pieces. Again I used Always Artichoke and on top of that I added some decorative paper I got at Michael's. I used the Sidekick Sayings stamp on watercolor paper and black Staz On ink. I colored the leaf in with a blender pen and Groovy Guava, Always Artichoke, Wild Wasabi and Pumpkin Pie markers. I sponged the edges and added a layer of Close to Cocoa behind it. I taped it in place and that was it. There's lots of pieces to this card but SO worth it!

If you have the time I highly recommend you head on over to SplitCoastStampers and check out their challenges. There are 160 Sketch Challenges!! That should keep you busy for a while. There is something new to challenge you every day. It's great to learn new things. I check other blogs and SplitCoast almost every day. I use them as a study. Plus I like to leave comments for other stampers. I have done the technique challenge a couple of times and didn't even know it!!! I was just using an idea I saw on SplitCoast and didn't know it was one of the technique challenges. It's all about having fun and I find the Sketch Challenge a lot of fun when I have time to play!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
