It's Wednesday! That's exciting for me because it's my day off! Oh yeah- and it's Sassy Challenge day too! This week's challenge is a Sketch Challenge. This layout came about accidentally when I tried to make my all green card in March using the weekly sketch challenge and it didn't quite work out. Well, one of my Sassy Sistahs like it so much she made that layout the challenge this week. It is one thing to "accidentally" end up with this layout and to actually PLAN your card with this layout! Phew!! I didn't know what I wanted to do but I knew I wanted to use the new Rubbernecker stamps I got for my birthday! :)
All cardstock and ink is from Stampin Up with the exception of the white- that is from Paper Trey Ink. The base of the card is Green Galore and I layered it with black then a cuttlebugged layer of Tempting Turquoise. My son actually helped make the card because I let him choose between two Cuttlebug folders and this is the one he chose! He did a great job! The images were stamped with Black Stazon and colored with my SU markers. There are way too many colors on here to list. I just pulled a bunch of markers out and started coloring. I can tell you that the crab is blue because he isn't cooked yet. My BFF who gave me this stamp told me I am not allowed to color him red (even though that would look really pretty...) because only COOKED crabs are red. The card just would not be the same if the crab was already cooked- so I made him blue. LOL! After coloring the images I sponged the blank areas with Tempting Turquoise to make it look like water.
Once the images were colored and placed where they needed to go, I thought I needed a sentiment. I wasn't sure what kind of occasion you would use a card like this, though. I started looking through all my sets and in my $1 sets from Michael's I found "Hang in there". I think it fits pretty good since that is exactly what the worm on the hook is trying to do.
So anyway- that is how this card came into existence. I hope you like it!
