Week 2 of Sketches



This week The Angel Company is featuring a new sketch and you are welcome and encouraged to play along! I combined this sketch with the challenge over at Copic Creations to work in a sky using copics and one of their tutorials. This is my second try at it and it's not quite right yet but I'm sure with some practice, I'll get better - I hope?!?

These are two retiring sets from The Angel Company and they are on sale right now so it's a good time to get them - it's your last chance plus the price is right.



It's hard to see in the photo but I embossed the green panel with a Fiskars leaf embossing plate and then rubbed over the raised images with Chartreuse Palette ink. The papers are from the Die Cuts with a View pack...and I have to say I grab for this set, Ordinary Greetings. 99% of the time! I stamped the words Bravo twice so that it would fit the panel better, but I really like how it looks/sounds as well.

I'd like to give a shout out of thanks to Michelle over at Purple Onion Designs...I won some blog candy last week and I really appreciate it. She was very generous and always wraps things so beautifully!
