Try A Sketch On Tuesday ~ Challenge #641

How are y'all doing? Hope you're finding time to have fun in your craft space. I've been working a lot and really miss crafting. Even a few minutes to play with paper or color with my Copics really makes me happy.

We have a new challenge at Try A Sketch On Tuesday which we hope will inspire you.

Here's my card

For my card, I masked off an area 1 3/4" x 5 1/8" on a white A2 card base. I used STAMPlorations' Placid stencil with distress inks - cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, mermaid lagoon, applied with oval ink blending brushes. For the horizontal strip, I used a Sizzix/Stephanie Bernard Borders die and some teal cardstock. For the fish, I used the Alley Way's Sea Mates stamp set. I stamped the fish with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added color with Copic markers - B12, BG05, E40, RV14, V06, Y17, YG23, YR16. I fussy cut the fish and added glossy accents to the eyes of the two fish for a bit of shine and dimension. I glued the fish in place. For the sentiment, I used SImon Says STAMP's Best Fishes stamp set.

We'd love to see how you're inspired by our sketch in our gallery.

  1. So cute, Sue! What a fun scene with the brightly colored fish. The stenciled panel is perfect for your theme as well. - Melanie R.

  2. What a great idea to use water and fish! This is super cute :)

  3. Great use of the sketch Sue with the panel that looks like water!! I completely understand getting busy and not being able to craft! It's such a relaxing outlet. Very nice card.

  4. OMG, Sue, what are you doing to me! Now, I want all of the Alley Way stamps! they are so cute. I wish I could get my hands on physical stamps since I my printer is not to be trusted.
