Retro sketch #5 + lawnscaping challenge
These sketch challenges are so much fun!
I worked with retrosketch #5:
to create this card:
My favorite thing about how I translated the sketch to this card? The hearts peeking out like little peeping-toms... hee hee.
It was my first time trying out the mirror stamping technique. The dragon on the left is the image included in the set. The dragon on the right was stamped onto the back of a large clear stamp, and then stamped down on cardstock. DUDE. This isn't as easy as it looks. I mean, does everyone else have super non-shaky hands? I gave my first few attempts to the kids for coloring - they were happy enough :) Once I traced the image outline with my memento black marker, it all looked better... and even better when I finished coloring him (that is the him in this dragon-relationship, just to be clear...)
For the sentiment, I yoinked the "you're" from "love 'n breakfast" and spelled out h-o-t with "sally's abcs".
I'm also entering this card into the current lawnscaping challenge: coloring.
I hope you like it! Thanks for peeking :)
