Bloggers Challenge- Sketch Challenge

Our Blogger ‘Mom’ Lisa has challenged us to a Sketch Challenge this week. BCoctsketch
Here is what I came up with:

















This is a close-up of the Paper Tole :


















   I am trying to use up my stash and found this SU DSP and this really old Embossing Arts stamp- that I just love.  I recently saw that I Brake for Stamps will be carrying the Embossing Arts stamp line, and of course I had to drag out all of my stamps and see what I had from that line…….
   I used Copics to color the images and used the Paper Tole Technique from (June 2003) Technique Junkies- I love a challenge….!   I stamped the image on a post-it note, and cut out layers of the ripples on the Nestability layer from the inside out. I sponged Soft Sky in varying degrees of color for the ripples.  For the black layer, I cut out 1 1/2 of the Nestabilities and layered them a little overlapping. I added a little touch of color that I used on the leaves with the Copic markers to the DSP to liven it up a touch.
My husband thinks the colors are too dark- he rates this card a ‘5’…guess I will not be giving it to him!
