...Soar High Sketch For You To Try

This was my submissions for Jen del Muro's Sketch For You To Try from Saturday. I started with a Basic Black Cardstock base, then matted the additional layers with either Basic Black Cardstock or Whisper White Cardstock. The patterned papers were from the Washington Apple Designer Series Paper pack, and the striped panel was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The focal panel is a piece of Bashful Blue Cardstock for the sky, and used my CutterBee Scissors to create the individual blades of grass on the Kiwi Kiss Cardstock. The image and sentiment were both from The Greeting Farm's set called "Wild Things", and were stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink. They were embossed with Clear Embossing Powder, then the image was colored using Copic Sketch Markers. The sentiment panel was punched out using the Large Oval Punch and the Scallop Oval Punch. Silver Brads were the only embellishments added to complete the card.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you back here tomorrow! Until then...
