...Happy Day With A Club Anya Sketch

This first card is my submission for Sketch Challenge #11 designed by my sweet buddy, Pam Varnell, for the Club Anya & Friends Blog. I stamped the little fella from The Greeting Farm's set "OA-Happy Day" in Black Ink onto a piece of PTI White Cardstock, then colored him with Copic Sketch Markers. I knew that I wanted to use these patterned papers from the BasicGrey Archaic Paper Pad as soon as I saw this stamp set...the little dinosaurs were just perfect! I wanted the attention to be on the focal panel, so I added a simple sentiment flag with a Button as an embellishment.

To my surprise, once I got started with this precious set I just couldn't put it down! So I also created a card using the little lady in the set...

I had already picked out some patterned papers from the Ooh La La For Her Paper Pack from My Mind's Eye, so I chose my color palette from there. She was also stamped in black onto PTI White Cardstock, and colored with Copic Sketch Markers. Can I just tell you that I L-O-V-E my markers?!? It has taken me quite a while to get the hang of them, but I really like that I can give my images a watercolored look without having to actually watercolor anything. The colors blend so well, and the result is just gorgeous.....GOTTA LOVE THEM!
Well that's it for me today! I have soooo much laundry to do, but I'll be back here tomorrow with another card for There She Goes. Thanks for stopping by, and until then...
