This is my submission for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from Saturday, but I couldn't get the circles to work out for me...they kept covering up my cute bull! I had to tweak the sketch to work to my advantage, so it may not even qualify as a sketch card anymore...we'll see I guess! LOL! These cute little animals were from the set that I talked about yesterday from Pink Poison, "McSplendid Farm". These three come as separate stamps, but I wanted to stack them on top of each other to fit the sketch panel...aren't they just too flippin' cute?!?
I started with a Tangerine Tango Cardstock base, and matted each additional layer with Regal Rose Cardstock...the focal panel has a Tangerine Tango Cardstock mat, though. All of the patterned papers were from the Sweet Always Designer Series Paper pack. I pierced the edges of the polka dot panel, the striped panel, and the sentiment circle using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The animals (and sentiment) were stamped in Graphite Black Brilliance Ink, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun, then colored with Copic Sketch Markers...LOVE THEM!!! I will be purchasing the "gotta have it all" package of 96 markers with my income tax refund money...I can't wait! I added three Antique Brass Brads to the Whisper White Cardstock focal panel, and tied a piece of 5/8" Tangerine Tango Striped Ribbon around the front. The circles that make up the sentiment panel were punched out using the following: 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1" Circle Punch, and the 3/4" Circle Punch.
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, but I have to take my oldest son out for his birthday dinner...he is 15 years old today! Good Lord, I am so old! LOL! I will see you back here tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge...so come back and play! Until then...
