This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin‘ is a Sketch challenge. You need to make a project based the following sketch:
I was asked this week to make a birthday card for a person that loves the outdoors and to kayak on the lake. I used this weeks sketch challenge to get started. I had decided to make a kayak using the bottom half of the boat from the Need for Speed stamp set (p68 AC)…. then I got stuck on what to do next. After a bit of playing around I decided I would paint using my inks and aqua painter. I have always considered myself unartistic until I found about stamping so this was a big step to have a go at a little free hand painting… I think I will stick to colouring my stamped images.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from Bring on the Cake stamp set (p142 AC) that I have stamped on new Cotton Ribbon (p20 HC). The designer series papers are from my retired stash.
