Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

It seems that each week the Sketch Challenges (SC) at SplitCoastStampers are more fun than the last week. Though I am not all that fond of the card I did I submitted it anyway in hopes that I would find some time to make another one.

I don't care for the background in the apricot color. I should have done it in a soft blue. I did get to play with my airbrush. I don't get to use it very often and when I do I really do enjoy it.

I used it on the coat, hat and background. The rest was done using markers and a blender pen.

I had run across some decorative paper I had bought last year and never used it. Imagine that!!! LOL And no, I didn't run across it cleaning! I wish! I was looking for something I had misplaced, if you can believe that!!! LOL When I saw the sketch challenge I thought of that paper. I was a bit reluctant to do a snowman in the summer but as cold as my workroom is I could only think of winter!!! My workroom gets unbelievable cold. But I'd rather have it that way than hot. I HATE the heat.

Anyway, I also was able to play with one of the new word sets that will be in the new catalog. It's called "Heard from the Heart." I thought it was a sweet set and I LOVE the looks of the larger words. And I thought it was versatile too. I can take a marker and use only the large words if I want or just ink up the whole thing and use it all.

The snow angel stamp is by Inky Antics. They have some really sweet snowmen. And you know me and snowmen!!!

If I find time to do another sketch I will post it here when I finish it. Hopefully it will be one I will like better than this one!

If you have time I highly recommend you stop by SplitCoastStampers and try the Sketch Challenge. They are a lot of fun and what is REALLY fun is to see all the different takes on that sketch. On the Sketch Challenge page is a link to the gallery submissions which contain only the ones from this sketch. You get to see how creative people are with the same layout!!! It's very impressive!

Thank you SO much for stopping by,

The snowman is a very cute image, I love the way you colored him. Glad you are getting some use out of your air brush, I have been tempted to go Copic and get the set up but have not done so yet.

I also can't wait to see the other sentiments with this set, this one is great!
