Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I actually had time to play along with the SplitCoastStampers Sketch Challenge today.

This was a fun layout. To figure out what image to use I just look through my stamps and see what best fits in the area and then I go from there. Once you have the image you want to use the rest is pretty simple. Colors and layers and sometimes decorative papers. It's the image that throws me. I use to sit for about a half hour just wondering what to use until one day the light bulb came on. It must be one of those newer florescent ones because it did get pretty bright in here!!! LOL Now when I have a layout to play with I just find the image that fits in the area. I did trim down the image on the card stock a little here (at the bottom). It didn't fit all the way in the area but enough to work with! Then I just cut the other layers. I knew I waned to use the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder for the white background. And once I started setting the layers in place I thought the pink could use a little texture too. Once I did that I liked what I saw.

I colored in the hair on the couple, the flowers and his bow tie. I used a glitter pen to highlight the veil. I sponged the edges and it was ready to assemble!!! I think this is one of the quicker sketch challenges I've done in a very long time!!!

I think I have all the wedding cards I need now!!! I'm behind on thank you cards so I'll be making a few more of them soon too!

If you have time go to SplitCoastStamers and play with the Sketch Challenge. Each week there is a new one!!

I keep a copy of each Sketch in a photo album and I take it out a lot. I just flip through the pages until I find a sketch that the image I want to use will fit in and I just go from there!!! It sure made my card making a lot easier!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

What a pretty card and an easy layout. I might even have to give this one a try. I really like what you have done with that stamp set so far.
