Sketch For You To Try

Thursday, November 19, 2015

Hi there!
I have a card I made for the Sketch For You To Try Challenge over at Reverse Confetti today! 


This card took me a few days to complete, I kind of lost my inspirations in the middle of it! Does that ever happen to you? How do you recover?

I LOVE this cute little monkey! So stinkin' cute!!!
I think I lost my inspirations because I kind of made the sketch blurry on this card...

So the whole thing started with my monkey and the presents. I stamped them with Stazon then water colored. I then die cut my garlands, I absolutely adore these dies! And there was some more water coloring on the garlands and background. 

I tried a few different things for the flag part, but settled with this vellum fringe! 
Those fun, sparkly glitter stars were added to repeat the star garland. 

After assembling the party together, I layered it on this patterned paper, I happened to use all the colors on this one! 
Even thought I got lost in the middle of this card, I think it turned out cute... What do you think?

My notes...

Stamp: Monkey Business (Reverse Confetti)
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Watercolor Paper, This and That DSP, Blue Vellum (Studio Calico)
