H2H Challenge: Get Sketchy

Good morning everyone! Coming to you live from my cushy hotel room, somewhere near our nation's capitol!

Yes, I'm in Washington DC for the National CTMH Convention! I'm so excited to be here and spend a couple of days with my family before I'm surrounded by 1000 other scrap crazy ladies!

But not to worry, I made sure I woundn't leave you hanging for this week's H2H Challenge!

This week is another sketch challenge for you coming straight from the Wishes book, called City Scape.

Now I know after this post you all went out and got your own copy, right.

Well, don't wait too long...after all Christmas is only 6 month away and now is an excellent time to get started on those holiday cards!

Okay, here's the sketch for this week:

I've had this new Howdy stamp set since the new Summer Idea Book came out and I've been itching to try it.

Stamps: CTMH Howdy
Inks: CTMH Cocoa, Twilight, Garden Green, Honey, Crystal Blue, Bamboo, Barn Red (duh), StazOn Timber Brown
Papers: CTMH Sarsaparilla

As you can see, I rotated the sketch to accomodate my image better. I colored the barn with ink pads and blending pens. I also ran the Twilight cardstock under the faucet to get it nice and wet. Then I crumpled it up and smoothed it out to dry. A little Cocoa ink around the edges adds some rustic charm, along with some hemp knots next to the sentiment.

Well, now. I've got lots to do and lots to see in DC. But be sure you stop by the other DT members' blogs and see all the great things they've done with the sketch!
