We are having some very gloomy weather here today. Sorry for the bad pic! Todays sketch challenge was a kickstand card designed by one of my favorite stampers Kirsten (ked). I love doing kickstand cards although sometimes they are hard to get a good pic of (like today!LOL!).
I made this card for my bestest friend Dusty. She lives in P.C. and has about 3 dogs and I think of her everytime I see this stamp set. BTW I won this stamp set off of Ana's blog candy (Thanks Ana!) All images and sentiment are from MFT By the seashore. The card base is kraft paper and I cute 1" from the bottom for my kickstand image. My soft sky layer has the waves embossed with clear ep. Since I still had my ep out from yesterdays card I decided to just go with it!LOL! The bird and post are up on dimensionals. I also used kraft taffeta ribbon. My sentiment layer is kraft( 1 3/8), cameo coral( 1 1/4), and textured soft sky(1) circle punched with the friendship embossed and punched out with the WW punch and popped up on dimensionals. For the main image I used my prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol. On the inside of the card I stamped the birds at the top and the seashells on the bottom and colored them. You can see a couple of the seashells along the bottom in the pic.
Everyone is back to school and work today and I have a quiet day with the house to myself! AAAHHH!!!!LOL!
