Sketch Saturday Challenge #322

We have a new sketch challenge starting today at Sketch Saturday!  Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Simon Says Stamp, with a generous $25 gift certificate going to one lucky winner.

Here is sketch #322:
The image I used today is a stamp I won from a Great Impressions challenge last Fall.  I also used my Distress markers to color it.  It took me a couple tries managing the water was the tricky part.  I ended up using Potion #9 blending solution and that worked the best.

Supplies Card 1 --
Stamp: Great Impressions F548 Elephant with Kite
Ink: Palette Black
Patterned Cardstock: Echo Park Happy Days
Cardstock: PTI Pure Poppy
Distress Watercolor Cardstock 
Distress Markers: Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Pumice Stone
Potion #9 Ink blending solution
Aqua Brush
Yellow Twine
Yellow Ribbon

My second card was actually the inspiration for the sketch this week.  I made it last Fall and never posted a write up on it.  It was made for my husbands co-worker who had engineer who plays guitar.     
The image is a TAC image 'Hey Life' is the set and is available at Red Rubber Designs. Papers are Simple Story Awes{one}, one of my favs.

You can see all the DT inspiration and enter our challenge HERE.  Hope you will join us this week.

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Both of your cards are great, Deb! Love the reds in the first card and the yellow ribbon flag.

  2. I really liked this week's sketch and I was sorry I was unable to catch up enough to make a card using it! Love your guitar card. It's kind of moody and very rock and roll! And I love your simple and beautifully coordinated colour palette of the elephant card. The yellow twine with the bows is so perfect for the kite image and I love all the white space above your sweetly coloured nellifant! Hugs, Lesley
