Still Summer in Paradise
Sketch it Saturday #124 Reveal

Are you's time for Unscripted Sketches Sketch it Saturday Reveal! This week's creation is using Sketch #124 over at Unscripted Sketches but it has a leaf in the sketch. This would make it fall, wouldn't it? Not with unscripted sketches...down here in South Florida, Summer is still in full swing! Here's my twist on this week's sketch.

This summery card begins with this Lounging Flamingo and the layered sun from Viva Las Vegas Stamps {I've linked each to the VLVS website}. The sun has a face, but I masked over it. I stamped in orange on yellow stock, cut out and layered yellow and orange papers. I edged with my favorite antique gold dew drop ink. I hand colored the flamingo with my watercolor pencils, then added some twinkle with liquid "Shimmerz Bling" in Under the Sea and Gold Shimmer. The flowers are Prima layered on a recycled tag from a totebag. This tag was the shape of a pretty flower, so it was perfect. I covered up text with acrylic paint, then added color back to fill in with my Caran D'ache water crayons and rubbed edges with antique gold. I pinched the corners to add dimension and adhered the prima flowers with a gem brad. It's a bit chunky for a card, but I love it - as I'm sure anyone would to receive it.

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun...and post your creation on their page for all the world to see!

Hope you have a great weekend. I am looking forward to having a nice relaxing weekend...I plan to putter around doing whatever and take a nap... no more Craft Shows for at least a week. Keep a lookout for a special post tomorrow with some great news!!! I'm so excited and can't wait to share.
