For the month of December I get to be the Guest Sketch Artist for a fairly new company called Skipping Stones Design and today is the big day....drum roll please.....
Yes, there it is...the first sketch of the month for Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday's and the very first time that I drew a sketch up on the computer! I'm so impressed that I managed to get it to work! lol - Just think...I get to do this 4 more times this month ;)
Ahem, now back to the card design ;) I made this cheeky card using the Margarita Birthday set and designed it specifically for my Gram. It's her 80th birthday coming up this weekend and not only does she love wine, but a good joke as well! Gram at the ripe old age of almost 80 still loves to have a good time and these sentiments couldn't be more perfect! I plan on saving some of the other sassy sentiments in this set for another birthday that is coming up soon...shhhhh...don't tell my best friend! *wink*
I water coloured and paper toled the wine glass and then added some crystal effects for the glossy texture and shine. I opted to play with the shapes on the sketch a little so that it fit what I had in mind for the card, and I think that it work out well. Almost all of the designer paper layers were run through my cuttlebug and I'm pretty sure that everything on this card was touched by a sponge. Yep...I got a little carried away with both the sponging and the sewing on this one!
I would love it if you got a chance to play along with this sketch! If you do and decide to upload your creation to SCS, then please use the keyword's: SSD01, skippingstonesdesign, skipping_stones_design. I can't wait to see what you all make! Oh and don't for get to leave some lovin' over on the Skipping Stones Blog. They will be doing a new sketch every Tuesday for your enjoyment and there will be prizes :)
