Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

I can not believe how fast these Wednesday's sneak up on me!!! The Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers this week was very fun. I needed a masculine birthday card so I thought I'd combine the two!!!

The stamp is from PSX. I stamped the image on watercolor paper and added some fun colors with a blender pen and markers.

I used the bubble Cuddlebug folder and I sponged the edges.

I didn't feel the card could support a bow since it was suppose to be masculine. So I thought a knot would work fine and it did. That area just needed something and the knot took care of it.

I also felt the top part appeared to be a bit blank too so I added 3 black buttons and it just seemed to complete the card.

The measurements given for this card from SplitCoastStampers are as follows beginning with the base of the card and working the way to the final layer.

Black card stock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded in half

Very Vanilla 5-1/4" x 4" (textured and edges sponged)

Black 5-1/2" x 3-1/8"

Almost Amethyst 5-1/2" x 3"

The three pieces are on a layer of black 5-1/2" x 2-1/2"

The three pieces are 1-1/4", 1-7/8", 1-7/8" and all are 2-1/2" high

Small Black layer 2-1/8" x 1-7/8"

Watercolor paper 2" x 1-3/4"

If you have time give the sketch challenge a try. Give your creativity a chance to bloom!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
