Some Very Sketchy Stuff!


Today Ally is posting the first skecth with samples from her new Card Sistahs, I loved, loved this sketch! (click here to see and play along) I used the new "Sweetest Blessings" set from Gina K and Mary Duffek and my Basic Grey Cupcake pack. All those little strips are actually trimmed from the cover of the pack , you know how they have that sampling of many of the prints inside? (it has a bit of a glossiness to it) Well, these swatches were already the perfect width to fit the card sketch so i just sleiced in between (plus I just love all these different patterns on one card to spice up my festive party theme! the strips in a row on the sketch also remind me of party candles...) :) Every other strip is popped up to give it some more dimension and interest. The base is Gina K Pure Luxury 120 lb white and the image is stamped in Memento Black and colored with Copics to match the Basic Grey prints. A little Stardust Stickles swirls on the frosting and Crystal Lacquer on the cherry finished it off!

Let's go see what the other sistahs made!
