Prettie Sketchy Wednesday

It was my turn 2 weeks ago to give the Prettie Girls a challenge and I took it easy on everyone and gave them a sketch challenge! I hope you can give it a try when you have a chance too!!

At Stamp New England last month, we made the cutest sketch book in Karen Motz's class and then we had a sketch swap so that we went home with it already started! It was wonderful! This was my sketch that I brought - pretty basic but that's my style! :) (You can click on the picture to make it larger)

I haven't used Flirty Fortunes in a while so I pulled out that great set from Paper Pretties and got to work. I was amazed at how fast I finished up this card - I am a very slow card maker and I think this one took me about 20 minutes! It was pretty easy too since I had this great American Crafts paper in mind which I think has a bit of a "Far East" feel.

I love the image of the chopsticks from the Flirty Fortunes set and, I've done this before, but I really like adding some Crystal Effects to them so they appear to be lacquered. For just one little unexpected element I added the bling heart to the fortune.

I can't wait to see what the other Pretties have done with the sketch - they are sure to amaze! I'm headed out for a full, full day but have a Prettie Wednesday everyone!

Cardstock: Soft Sky, Kiwi Kiss (SU!), White (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper: American Crafts, Stamps: Flirty Fortunes (Paper Pretties), Ink: Memento, Accessories: Corner rounder punch (SU!), Copic markers, Dimensionals, Crystal Effects, Crystal Heart
