This is a sketch hop and the sketch was provided by our own extremely talented, Melissa Cash. Thanks so much Melissa, this is an awesome sketch and one, I'm sure, will be used over and over. Here is Melissa's sketch:
Isn't this a great sketch??? I made two cards for our hop today and because I liked the color combo I kept it going throughout each project.
This is my first card:
CS: GKD White and Vibrant Violet. The scene was sponged with Memento Sky Blue and Paris Dusk, stamped with trees in Memento, Vintage Green, then using a post-it note, I masked the "edge" to make it appear like it was a skating rink. I cut the oval with Nestabilities. The stamps are all from the new "Winter Wonderland" stamp kit. (what a great bargain these sets are each month) The skates are colored with metallic pencils and highlighted using the Sukura Gelly Roll pen. CB EF "Swiss Dots" made the background.
My second card:
I changed up the sketch a bit for this one but I really loved the way it turned out. (Sorry that the photo isn't the best, I didn't get home in time to take a daylight shot of it.)
CS: GKD PL Fresh Asparagus, Vibrant Violet and White.
Stamps are from the Winter Wonderland Stamp Kit. Colored with Copics. Spellbinder dies are Labels 14. Distressed with Tim Holt's Distress Ink "Milled Lavender".
You're invited to play along with us. Just post your card to the thread in the Forum at StampTV - we'd love to see your take on the sketch too.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Now, the very talented Deb Felts is waiting for you to see what she's created.
Enjoy your weekend!
