Hi blog friends!!!  

It's What if? Wednesday time at The House That Stamps Built and we're ready with a new sketch challenge for you.  

Sketches have so many fun opportunities for creating beautiful cards and projects.  I was thinking about this sketch while I was looking at some retro beach photos on Pinterest.  I love those old postcards that show off having a fun summer some place far away from home and friends.  I took the sketch and flipped it then went a tad retro.  

I hope you can "see" the sketch in this card.  I flipped it.  I used RI #1404-S "Nubble Light (lg) for the image and after stamping it with Archival "Water Can Grey", I watercolored it using my Koi watercolors.  I then coated it with VersaMark and covered it with clear embossing powder and heat set it.  I repeated the process twice more and got this high gloss look. The sentiment is RI# 1145-G "Greetings From" .   I used a Memory Box die for the seagulls and colored them with Copic Markers and placed them in the areas depicted on the sketch.  

You are going to have some fun with this one....I know you are.  Please share your creation with all of us at The House.  You can enter for the drawing for $25.00 worth of RI Stamps.....and if you can't wait and want to shop, please use the code at the right hand side of my side bar for 10% off your entire order of RI stamps.
