Friday's Caardvark Sketch
Well I can't bellieve it's friday already, can you? Actually it's Saturday where I am, I'm just a tad late posting my sketch cards. I have done two for Friday's sketch challenge. I do like both of them, but am not sure that they are ok for the challege. As I have turned the flower card sort of sideways & the butterfly isn't as defined (with the 3 square shapes) as I would have liked. Oh well I guess I'm always going to be my own worst critic.
I made the background on the flower card using my mini misters & Vivid re-inkers & a dash of Perfect Pearls. Which I randomly sprayed over white card. Once it was dry I then used Versamark ink & my all time fav background stamp Dots & Flowers (from Hero Arts)to add some interest. The flowers where stamped onto watercolour paper & then I used watercolour pencils & an aqua brush to colour the images. After that all dried I went over the flowers & leaves with Diamond Glaze.
For the this card I inked the edges of the background paper with Tim Holz Faded Jeans I then stamped the branch in Versafine Spanish Moss, the butterfly in Versafine Onyx Black twice (once onto white c/s so I could raise the wings).I coloured the branch with Prisma colour pencils as well as the butterfly. I then used Diamond Glaze on the butterfly to give it a nice sheen. I added buttons to the centers of the flowers. The tag was inked with Tim Holtz Broken China & then stamped with a Hero Arts stamp.
As always thank you all so much for stopping by & leaving such wonderful comments :D. TTFN
