StampTV sketch challenge....

Hey Ya'll! Thought I'd play along in this week's Mix It Up Monday over on StampTV ...it's a sketch challenge hosted by Vicki this week, fun one too! Here is my card:



I watercolored!! Here is a close up:



so, yea, Im no expert, but I do like how kinda rustic this turned out! I stamped onto watercolor paper with versamark and used gold embossing powder, LOVE this affect! Funny thing about this card...It was suppose to say 'Birthday Wishes' But I grabbed the wrong sentiment apparently and after stamping..went 'oh! How that get on there?!!' haha! BUT wasnt about to trash it just cause of that!! I'll pay closer attention next time hopefully! ...probably not, lol.

And another thing...I find it so very hard to do sketch challenges! They are truly a challenge for me. They seem to take me forever when the whole thing is laid right out there for you! LOL! ahhh, well, guess that's why they are called 'challenges' right?

Here is the sketch by the way...and hope you will play along! you have a chance to win a stamp set of your choice from Gina K Designs!!



Thanks so much for stoppin by! Have a wonderfully creative day!
