What a week. My son broke his arm on Tuesday. It was just one of those boy things. He was jumping over a rail, hit his ankle, lost his balance, and landed on his outstretched hand. He now has a new catch phrase - FOOSH (Fall On OutStretched Hand).
Three hours in the ER, three hours in surgery, and a night stay in the hospital before he was all fixed up. Poor Josh. Now he is house bound for a while. What a way to spend the summer.
Friday Sketchers challenge for this week is to use this sketch...
and here is my card...
Stamps:Tilda in the Sea (Magnolia), Just Beachy (Stampin Up!)
Ink: Memento, Copics
Paper: Bazzll Blings, Pacific Point, White card stock, vellum, NRN Designs paper
Embellishments: Flower Daisies 2 die, Fire Rhinestone brads
Other notes: I used the Copics Airbrush System to add some blue to the white vellum to give a water feel. I trimmed Tilda's legs out of the vellum to give the more realistic feel of Tilda standing in the water.
I had this idea in my head from the time I got this stamp, and this sketch worked perfectly for this idea. I liked the idea of having the fish under water showing. I love the way it turned out.
I am still working on remembering to decorate the inside of the card. I tend to be lazy too often, but really like the completed look, so I am going to try to be more consistent about this aspect of the card.
The designer paper is some I have had for years and loved it so much, I never used it. Do you know how that is? It came from a scrapbook pack and has a beach theme. I love the colors and fresh, bright feel it gives.
As usual, I used Copics to color Tilda. Isn't this Tilda just the cutest!
These are the colors I used.
I hope you have a great Thursday!
