Sketch Challenge 333

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Sorry I have not been posting regularly. My husband is out of town on business and I am like a fish out of water. Never fear he comes home tonight but will be gone again next week. This is new to me. He went on business trips when we were first married and no kids but now I am home alone with three kids under 5. Needless to say the kids are in control. LOL. Hopefully this won't be a regular practice with his new job. Well on to my card.

I created this card for a sketch challenge on Split Coast Stampers. Now that I have found all these challenges that they have daily I am hooked. I totally loved this sketch from the 18th. I loved it so much I am making two more cards with the same layout but different designs.

I made this card for the Heart Song Design team as well with their one of their new images now available in their store. Make sure to stop by and check out their great images.

Card Recipe:

Image: Heart Song Designs - Tiny Miracle
Paper: brown cardstock for the base, mustard yellow and deep blue for the layers and Paper Patch designer paper.

I colored the larger image with my Copic markers which I am falling in love with and can not wait to add to it. and with the smaller images I colored with my Stampin Up colored pencils. I layered the images onto the yellow and blue cardstock and mounted the smaller ones on top of the designer paper and then used pop dots to raise the larger image up for more detail. Finally I finished off the card with the same color blue and yellow brads. I was really excited how this turned out. I will be posting the other two cards that I made soon.

My second card is using the Baby Giraffe image also available in the store (icon right hand part of the screen). for this one I colored the Giraffes with my Stampin Up colored pencils I then mounted them onto pale green and cream colored cardstock. The base of my card is pink and I used a baby designer paper. I added baby ribbon and baby bottle brads to finish off the card.
Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!!!

These are both so adorable, Debbie! What a great sketch, and I love the way you repeated the images. Sweet color combos, and beautifully accented both. I agree -- those Splitcoast challenges can be addictive -- LOL!
