Fun and Friendly Sketch Challenge Card

Happy Thursday! Today I have a card using this week's Sketch Challenge on Split Coast (#245). I just thought this layout was really cool and had to try it out. I also used the recently released Stamp set from Artful Inkables Fun and Friendly. Oh yeah-The Artful Inkables website is all NEW so you should check it out! Kristin has been hard at work making it a great place to visit and browse.
Also- don't forget that you still have a chance to participate in Artful Inkables Think Ink Tuesday challenge HERE. You have until Midnight (Pacific Time) on September 14th for a chance to win a grab bag of Artful Inkables Stamps! If you don't have any AI stamps you can still play- but if you do and use them for the challenge your entry gets counted TWICE! How cool is that?

Ok...back to my card. I chose my paper because of all the great prints that reminded me of weaving. Of course, the colors just came automatically from there. The main image is colored with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol. I just have so much fun coloring with my pencils and with the 120 ct. set and a few of the latest colors- I rarely can't find the color I'm looking for. I attempted to make a bow on my card instead of my usual knot. Thank goodness I had this felt flower (that just happened to match) to cover most of it. LOL- I totally need a tutorial and lessons on making bows.

Thanks for stopping by today!
