Here's my card for this great CAS Sketch Challenge. I'm really happy with the way this turned out, both with the scene and the cool envelope! I can't wait to give this to my father-in-law for his birthday next month.
I started with a 3-1/2" x 6" Crumb Cake card base and stamped the Gorgeous Grunge dots with Crumb Cake ink onto the upper left corner and the sentiment with Early Espresso ink along the bottom right corner. The birds were colored with my Soft Suede Marker and the water was colored with my Island Indigo marker and then stamped onto Whisper White cs. I inked up the reeds with my Crumb Cake and Soft Suede markers. I used my Two-Way Glue Pen to add Dazzling Diamonds Stampin' Glitter to the water reflections, layered this panel on Soft Suede cs and adhered it to the card with Dimensionals. I then added two strips of Soho Subway DSP to finish it off.
Isn't that envelope cool?! I used my Envelope Punch Board to make it!!
