ISSC03 - Pot of Love


Hi everybody! As the post is going live, I'm currently traveling down to Seattle to take part in an annual pajama crop with this group of special ladies:
Angela, Tobi, Laurel and myself will be driving down on Thursday and will be coming back most likely changed people after the event! I'm telling you that some of these ladies are crazy! But I know that we are in for a boatload of fun and some perma-grin :D


...And now back to your regular programming :D This is the card that I made to feature one of Sean Fetterman's cards for the ISSC03 challenge at the iSpy Sketches blog. I used and oldie but a goodie stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps called Bless my Bloomers which was a set that I illustrated :D I watercoloured it with tombows, shaded it with chalks, coloured the grass with prismas and then sponged it with inks :D



I have to admit that I did struggle with the sketch a bit simply because the images that I wanted to colour up for the card were all too big. In the end, I love how the card turned out! If you would like to join along in the challenge, please visit me and the rest of the Special Agents over at the iSpy Sketches Challenge blog :) Hope to see you there!

PS: What do you think of the facelift here at Paper in the Works? I have been flu ridden this past week so I decided to play around and came up with this design in between coughing, sneezing, and whining ;)
