Kickin' Sketch


Time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishment challenge. This month we are focusing on sketches. Every Tuesday tune in for a new sketch challenge - created by the ever so fabulous Lynda. I definitely love trying new layouts. When uploading your card to SCS, please us the keyword JBE056. Don't forget to check out the new items that have recently been added to the store: Stampavie images and Shimmerz Spritz.


What a way to kick off a month full of sketches. This one was so much fun to play with!!! Wouldn't you love to be lounging in a hammock sipping on something cool right about now? I used this sweet image by Penny Black called Kickin' (thanks Tammi). It's colored in with Koh-i-noor pencils and OMS. I went over the flowers and drink with Marigold Shimmerz. Yes, the paper combo might look familar. I used it to make this card the other day and I just couldn't resist using it again. Basic Grey Marrakech is so perfect for summery cards! I used the Prima Screen stamp on the Baja Breeze paper. I love these little clear background stamps. They are easy to ink up, they add great texture to your card and they are only $1.99! Can't beat that!! I hope you play along with us. Be sure to check out what the other design team gals came up with:
