I'm combing 3 challenges for my card today...today's Sketch, yesterday's color, & Monday's Technique. I used all of the colors for my Thanksgiving card & did a little bandana tech on the olive green strips. For the sketch, I let the legs of the scarecrow serve as the 2nd horizontal band of the sketch, but all other elements are there.
The scarecrow was colored w/ Copics, fussy cut & added to a stitched oval that I stamped the arced greeting across the top. The scroll image was stamped on the die cut olive strips & I used the white gel pen for the bandana tech. The ombre yellow strip started out a honey color & I sponged the Distress inks on it going to red at the bottom. The sponged & fussy cut leaves & punched branches were added around the oval.
Thanks so much for looking. I'll have it on my blog as soon as I fix a little problem w/ it. Don't you love software updates that totally mess up what wasn't broken? The Write Stuff
