Sketch Happy

That's what I am tonight, folks...Sketch Happy! All day at work I was bored and did nothing but look at blogs and think about stamping! So, as soon as I got home I headed up to the stamp room to get busy on the Taylored Expressions Challenge and the Mojo Monday sketch. So much fun! The owl card just cracks me up. That little guy drives? Really? Yep! Apparently, he does! Haha.

Here is the Taylored Expressions card:


The background papers are cut into squares, but once I put the ribbon on it made it seem like continuos pieces. I purposely arranged the squares so that they would look like they created little branches.  All in all, I love this card. Oh! And my 7 Copics from papertrey came in the mail today, so I got to play with those a wee bit. I colored the car in with a Copic and used the colorless blender in the middle to add some shading to the car. I KNOW I am really going to love them once I get more colors. I only used RV14 and the colorless blender on this card. Of course I also used Stickles..I really just love 'em! I used pearls for the headlights and instead of using the sentiments that came with Enjoy the Ride, I used a sentiment from the Wise Owl set. It matched better and made more sense with the owl driving the car. I love how the words fit within the plate - very cool, papertrey, very cool!

I made a card for the Mojo Monday challenge, but it's just not *right*. Something is too plain, so I'm going to redo it and post it tomorrow night, maybe. :0)

Have a great night y'all! Thanks for visiting!!
