Day 29 ~ Sketch 29

Instead of rushing around in the morning to post before church or posting late after church, I am going to post my sketch early. And along with that comes the announcement of one of the winners of my sketch contest. The selection process was brutal. There were so many great sketches and I plan on trying them all over time. But I can only pick three winners for the last 3 days of the contest. Today I'm posting the 3rd place winner. Third place goes to Monica of Monica's Crafts. (I'll post the prizes on the final day.) Here is Monica's sketch:





















My card:


I paper pieced the umbrella using one of the DPs in the Simply Scrappin' Kit "Creative License". The triangles are actually a square piece of another sheet of the collection cut in half. It's double-sided paper. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the card stock in the kits is textured. No wonder the prices went up dramatically in the kits. I water colored the image using a blender pen and my ink lids. Which was a little difficult as I only have the stampin' spot in Wild Wasabi. I haven't broke down and bought the pad yet. I will before they leave. (Lori, if you're reading this, please remind me! LOL) But for now, I simply pressed the spot into the lid of my Garden Green pad

Stamps~ Favorite Friends, Teeny Tinies
Ink~ Palette Black Noir, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin, Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Creamy Caramel, Sahara Sand, Pretty in Pink

Love what you are doing with the sketches. They really inspire me. Now I wish I had more time to do all of them! Working 11+ hours a day leaves very little time for playing. But eventually I'm sure I'll come back and try all your sketches!
