I decided to try the sketch challenge tonight after being in a slump lately plus I've been busy trying to get my house ready for my twin sister (okstamper) who's coming to visit.
I used SU basic black cs as the base. I layered with Reflections mustard cs & green cs. I used SU real red cs as the other layer. All 3 panels are layered with SU basic black cs. I also used the CB big dot ef on all 3 panels. I stamped the image with black stazon on watercolor paper, then used blending stumps, primascolor pencils & mineral spirits. After putting everything together I realized the image was smaller than I thought for the sketch so I added a small strip and stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I added 2 black flat adhesive dots on the opposite side of the image. The main panel is raised with 3D dots.
