Hi there and welcome to Studio 5380.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Mine has been pretty lazy and I have accomplished very little, but that's okay...Monday is coming and I'll play "catch-up"!
I want to take a minute to say a big "thank you" to everyone who stopped by and left such sweet comments on my last post. Going back to work at my age has really been an adjustment and I'm still trying to find the right balance, but I'm getting there. And, your kind, encouraging comments reminded me of just how important it is to carve out that time reserved just for me (you ladies are awesome). So, with that in mind, I headed upstairs to my Studio for a bit of inky time yesterday afternoon, determined to play along with the current My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge. While I'm not completely happy with the way my card came out, I really enjoyed the time I spent playing. I colored this adorable little Hula girl 3 or 4 times but was never pleased with the way she turned out. This is a darling image and I didn't do her justice, but here we go.....
I really had fun creating the background for my card.
I mixed some texture paste with a little brown ink then smoothed it onto my card base through the Wonky Chevron stencil from My Favorite Things.
While that was drying, I cut an oval from white cardstock using the Cross Stitch Oval die set.
I inked up the sky and water using various inks. Using my texture paste and brown ink mixture, I created my "sand". After the texture paste was completely dry, I add some Brown Wink of Stella Glitter for some contrast and sparkle.
I added a few flowers and some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to finish up the inside of my card.
And, here's a photo of the sketch in case you would like to play along...
Thanks again for stopping by today.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and I hope to see you soon....
