H2H Challenge: Sketch Time

First of all, I'd like to thank those that serve this country: past, present, or future. Thank you on this Memorial Day, and everyday, for your sacrifice.

And now, because it is Monday again, it's also time for a new H2H Challenge. This week we have another sketch for you:

All the DT members did an excellent job with this and I'm sure they had fun with it like I did. I turned the sketch on its side to accomidate my card a little more, but other than that, I followed it pretty precisely.

Stamps: CTMH Extreme Happiness
Inks: CTMH Desert Sand, Cranberry, Pansy Purple, Sunflower
Papers: CTMH Moon Doggie Reflections Kit

I don't know, maybe it's because school is out now and the boys are always asking about when we can go swimming, but I couldn't get the Moon Doggie paper out of my head when I saw the sketch. It just reminded me a boardwalk somehow. So even though I will probably never actually be at a beach, much less get in the water...I have an irrational fear of open water...

it was relaxing just to make the card and pretend I was somewhere tropical.

I inked up the larger flower from the Extreme Happiness set with Cranberry ink, the after stamping off once, I sponged on some Pansy Purple ink to give it more definition. To create the matte under the flower, I turned over the flower stamp and lightly stamped the back of it onto Colonial White cardstock. Then I cut it out and flipped it over. I sponged the edges of that and adheared the flower to the perfectly shaped matte. Just another reason why I love these My Acrylix stamps so much!

So get creating and join the challenge this week! If you need more inspiration, be sure to check out the rest of the team members' pieces:
