You're Swell

Card sketches are a fun way to get inspiration when the creative juices are not flowing.  You can find sketches all over but one of the companies I go to is Sugar Pea Designs.  I love to work with Wendy's stamps and it's even better when there is an opportunity to win a gift certificate to shop!  So today's card is made featuring the Sugar Sketch Challenge 11.


I turned the sketch on its side, which is allowed.  I used elements from the Seaside Wishes stamp and made a little scene.  This is my favorite stamp set at Sugar Pea, although I say that about almost every one.  Next month I get the privilege of taking a Copic coloring class from Wendy using this set.  I'm so excited!  She is an excellent colorist and it will be fun to get tips from an expert.  Here is the complete stamp set.


I wanted to color up the girl but decided to wait until after my class so that I could do her justice.  I hope so anyway.


As you can see I used the beach shoreline, the sand castle, crab and shells.  The paper I chose sort of reminded me of water bubbles, although I've never seen any that are pink or green.  The card base is Crisp Cantaloupe and I cut a rounded rectangle for the stamped scene.


It's hard to tell but I used a Wink of Stella clear pen on the white sand and Glossy Accents on the wavy water, shells and the crab's eyes.  I got a little heavy handed on the right eye.  Artistic license, right?


I even stamped a cute frog image from a separate set called Hello Sunshine.  I thought it was just the perfect finishing touch.


Thanks for your comments and visiting me today.
