Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #193


Hello, everyone! I hope that you are having a good week. 

Sketch N Scrap has the first card sketch of the month posted over on the blog today. Sketch Artist Lisa is getting us started with a fun sketch that is perfect for using up some scraps: 

This is what I came up with:

I used Carta Bella's Flower Garden collection that I received in my April kit from The ScrapRoom. I really didn't want to cut into the full 12x12 papers for 3 small strips of paper, so I got creative and decided to use bits and pieces of the 6x4 journaling cards for my strips of paper. I knew I wouldn't be using them in my PL album so I put them to use on this card. The sentiment, black and white striped border sticker, and tag all came from the kit, too. 

I wanted to do something to the background panel but I didn't really want to use my embossing folders. I decided to pull out my neglected watercolors and add a splash of color to it.

Here is a close-up:

I really can't believe that I was able to mix the watercolors good enough to get that good of a match to the blues in the papers! I added foam tape to the tag and scattered a few black gems around my card. 

Be sure to stop by Sketch N Scrap to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team. I hope you have some time to play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today! Have a great day!
