Hi all and happy Monday! I'm kicking off the week with another PageMaps Monday -- a day when I scour the galleries over at PageMaps' Cardmaps and look for just the right sketch to set off one of my stamped images.
I don't know about you, but I love to stamp a bunch of images, color and then stick those colored images in a drawer for a day when I want to make a card but don't have a ton of time to color! This card was done just that way!
So, here's a peek at the sketch I picked......
And here's my card! As you can see, even though this sketch is long and lean, I chose to squish it and make it fit with an A2 card. Like I always say -- that's the beauty of a sketch!
I started by stamping the pail of flowers -- from Penny Black's Friendship Flowers stamp set --with Espresso Truffle Memento Ink and then I colored it all up with Copic Markers. I used E23, E25, E27, Y21, Y18, C00, C01, C03, C05, E33 and then I shaded with Y000, BG000, W00, W01 and W03. The little accents were created thanks to a Molotow White Paint Pen.
Here's a close up!
And that, my friends, is it! If you are ever in need of some sketchy inspiration -- it's just a click away at Pagemaps.com's Cardmaps! Grab a cuppa joe or tea, make yourself comfy and have fun looking!
See you back here soon!
