Happy Sunday peeps!!
It is Sweet Sunday Sketch Day.
Here is our Sweet Sketch for this week:
I was inspired by my sweet friend Wendy Jansen at It's All About Stamping to pull out this sweet little single stamp from Stampin Up called "Two by Two" she had posted a card she made with earlier this week and it made me want to give one a try. I have had this stamp for a long time and have not made anything with it, I have tried to color it a time or two but never liked my results, but I was determined this time.
My first thoughts was to make a sweet little baby girl card, my best friends daughter is expecting and they find out next week what she is having and I wanted to have both a girl and boy card in my stash so I could send the appropriate one when they find the out the sex. I have a baby boy card already but when I was coloring and then matching paper I realized this card was just going to have to be for a boy.
I stamped and colored the image twice so I could cut out the animals and add them over the top of the the bottom image with some dimensionals. I used my copics to color the image.
Here is a close up of the little animals:
Aren't they sweet?
The DSP on here comes from the Sycamore Street paper pack which was a freebie during SAB. Love the colors in these papers.
The base of the card is Island Indigo and then a layer of Pool Party and then the DSP.
I changed the sketch just a bit by making my center strip with the "flag" end instead of going all the way across the bottom. That strip is tangerine tango card stock that I embossed with "Chevron" EF.
The sentiment is part of the single stamp I just stamped onto a scrap of white and cut out and added across the bottom of the circle.
I finished this off with two small silver brads.
Be sure and check out what the rest of the team has made with this sweet sketch:
