I'm back! I'm sure you noticed that I took a bit of a hiatus, after the MFT GDT spot :) I enjoyed it so much that it was hard to come back down from being on cloud 9! But I'm back! :)
So I needed something to get my creative juices flowing, when I saw that Flourishes has a neat sketch challenge. I had missed so many of their wonderful challenges, in the past month, that I wanted to jump right in and this was the perfect time!
This is the card that I made from the challenging sketch. (For some reason my blog is making my card all blurry. You can see it better if you click on the picture).
I used "A Guiding Light", "Antique Map" and the Happy Birthday stamp from "Sweet Violets". All are from the Flourishes company (love their stamps!). I used a long Rectangle Spellbinder to make the window cut out, and placed the lighthouse piece inside it. I then used my Tombows to color in everything, then added some Diamond Glaze to make the water more translucent instead of flat looking. I sponged some Antique Linen all over everything lightly, for an old patina look.
I needed a card for my younger brother's birthday today (Happy Birthday, Matt!!) and I love how it turned out! I struggle with "manly" cards, but this sketch really helped me think outside the box :)
Sorry for such a short post, tomorrow is my youngest's FIRST birthday and we are busy getting ready for it!!! :)
