Friday Sketch #47 - Relaxing At the Lake


This is a retired set from Stampin Up... one of my favorite from the Seaside Series..this is one set I was sorry to see go to the retirement home. Once I decided to use this image, I took out my trusty ole brayer. I stamped the image in Versa Mark then Staz On and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored in with my copics, used my Versa Marker Pen and carefully stayed within the lines of the image. Again put on clear embossing powder and heat embossed. I then brayered Baja Breeze over the entire image, used a post it note to create a horizon and sponged Not Quite Navy. Stamped in the tree and grass. After I put the entire card together, my husband looked at the sketch and said "What does text mean?"... It was at that point I realized that I forgot to stamp a sentiment... So I took a deep breath and stamped in "just a note" because it was small enough to fit in that space...

I love this set so much. I haven't seen a card I do not like made with this set. Yours, as always, is TOPS though! You do such beuatiful work and you always add some "special" touch to set the card off. This is wonderful-I am glad you shared.
