Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #99

Written by: iwona    5 Comments

Hi friends, sorry for the late! I had the card done and photos ready in the morning, but then we scored an impromptu family visit which took us well into the evening. Can you see the number of this challenge? We’re one sketch short of a hundred!! I’ll be frank with you, I don’t actually have any specified plan about what to do about it yet, but I promised you changes and there will certainly be some! They will surely be fabulous too, but more of it later – make sure you “like” my page on Facebook to get the perks as they come! (link on the sidebar)

Chatting aside, let’s roll in with the sketch! It’s a little CAS number, and it was inspired by a card but due to my overlooking, I can’t tell you where the inspiration was found… I saved the card to my computer but forgot to attach the link to it *insert guilty face*

I combined the WPlus9 and Hero Arts stamps, for a ‘modern folk’ style card. I filled in the parts of the lace border with Copic markers and added a complimentary strip of  cardstock, for a nice, full look. The flowers on both sides of the sentiment, were popped up on dimensionals.

I used a Memento marker in Bamboo Leaves (same as the ink used for the scrolls), to stamp the word ‘wonderful’, and regular black ink for the rest of the sentiment. Once stamped, I actually went over the green word with the marker, smoothing out the uneven lines. These markers are perfect for a watercolour look but not so much for precise stamping.

A ColourQ challenge, such gorgeous colour palette that I had such a pleasure playing with as well 🙂


A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:

– You’re kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
– If you upload your card to an online gallery, use the code SSC99.
– Feel free to share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget, so that I can come and check it out!
– The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
– A new sketch and sample is posted every other Saturday night (American EST time ~ or around mid-day Sunday Melbourne time), but you’re welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.
