[7.20.2014] wanna sketch no. 18

Wanna Sketch no. 18

Welcome to the next Wanna Sketch? Challenge.  This one is a throwback to banners.  I haven’t used strips of banner in ages.  Time to challenge myself and you to banner it up.




Here it is the middle of July and I’m feeling fallish… craziness. I colored my mushrooms first and somehow I ended up keeping them all monochromatic with the browns.  I had the though of using the kraft paper for my card in my head and it must have influenced my Copic coloring of the mushrooms.  I added the blue sky background (with Distress Inks) to add a little color at the end.  Then, I went crazy with the banners.  Heehee.  Full of fall colors and patterns.  I kinda forgot about the sentiment going in the bottom corner of the card when I went banner crazy.  There wasn’t room to stamp it.  Oops.  So, I had to move it up a bit.

This stamp is the new Stamp of the Week I designed for Unity Stamp Co.  I just love mushrooms.

Are you ready to take this sketch on???  The linky will stay open until Friday, August 15, 2014 {11:55pm PT}.
Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    I haven’t used banners in a while, either! Hmmm…
    You’re feeling fallish, and I have an itch to get all my Christmas supplies out. Whatever is going on? 😀

    If you are thinking about Autumn then I must be thinking about Spring which means that we are getting so much closer to Summer again yippeee! Another great card and sketch Lisa (hope to join in the fun again)!
