GOOD MORNING PEEPS!!! It's Sunday which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week;

Awesome sketch Huh? I know lots of people won't love this one because of the tilted panel, but I don't mind them, in fact I kinda like them!!! LOL!

I started this card with a base of basic black and then for the next layers I used more basic black, some newsprint DSP and another piece of basic black. I ran all these layers through the square lattice embossing folder with my Big Shot.

The main panel is from a set I just got, just got for free I might add! Nothing much better than free rubber!! I stamped the truck image onto some watercolor paper with black stazon. I used my aqua painter and my ink pads to color it. I used Pacific Point ink for the truck and some crumb cake for the sign and baskets and then real red and cherry cobbler for the apples. I colored in the grass and ground with old olive and soft suede. I matted this with basic black and the DSP I used is from a retired pack. The sentiment comes from the Thank You Kindly Stamp set and is stamped onto some watercolor paper and punched out with the wide oval punch. I mated this with more of the DSP. I added some silver pearls to the sentiment piece and to the card base bottom and side.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
