Happy Saturday! The OCC has a sketch challenge up for today! We also have a sponsor this week, a brand new digital stamp company Sugar Creek Hollow. So new, in fact, that their Grand Opening is March 1st. All of the Grand Opening proceeds will be donated to a food pantry. They are offering up a prize to random participant in this sketch challenge, so be sure and check out all the details on the OCC Blog!
The design team cooked up some fun cards using this sketch. Be sure and check 'em out, you can find links to all the ladies on my side bar! I think I was the one that strayed the most from the sketch (there's always one in every bunch, lol).... I used the initial layout, but then I added and added and added some more.... kind of disguising the original layout... but it is there.... just underneath some add ons!
I used one of the images from our Sponsor, Sugar Creek Hollow. I thought these boots were kind of fun and would be neat to embellish. I used Copics to color, adding airbrushing around the edges in addition to sponging some brown ink too. I love this funky lace trim... sadly this card used up my stash. When I cut it the edges frayed pretty roughly so I covered up the corners using a little piece of card stock, hiding the cut ends. The usual stitch marks, I can't stop adding them. A sheer black ribbon bow and that's all! Final card is an A2.
