Inspirational Card Sketch Challenges Blog




I made a card for the ICS challenge, I used the sketch to make my friend Cass a birthday card.  I used a technique I saw on split coast stampers called crinkled chalk where you take crumpled up saran wrap and dip it in different colors of chalk ink to  create kind of a tie dyed looking background.  I liked the look so much that I left the card kind of plain.  I colred the image with my BIC markers, copics, and glitter gel pens.  I used glassy glaze on the crystal ball to give it that glass look.

Later that day Jack's friend Ethan came over for a playdate and they ate suckers and played outside, then later that day Jack's (2nd or 3rd) cousin Gracie and her Mom (Melissa, my hubby's first cousin) came over.  We played, then went on a golf cart ride to check out out house (in progress), we all went swimming, then played again, then ate some food and ice cream, then played again, and did some crafts.  It was an exhausting but really fun day.
