Tuesday Throwdown #256: Sketch

Good morning, friends! Welcome to another Tuesday Throwdown Challenge. Our theme this week is "Sketch" and we sponsored by MyGraphico. That means we get to play with their gorgeous digis. If you don't have anything by My Graphico, you can still play along, as long as you follow our challenge theme. I'm using this super fun and versatile Pretty Mermaid set of digi stamps. It's girl and fun with tons of underwater creatures and various other elements. The design possibilities are endless.

So here's my Pretty Mermaid card. It took a fair bit of thinking on my part to come up with an underwater scene with the sketch ... not easy, which made it that much more fun. I used scraps of paper from and old Basic Grey pad, did some stencilling, dry embossing, colouring, fussy cutting and threw in lots of Liquid Pearls and Stickles. Phew! It took a village to raise this card! :)


Here's a close-up. I used Graph'It alcohol markers to colour the images. The fun part of this card is cutting out the various underwater creatures and laying them down....felt like being in play school. And check out the little mermaid's tail! Oh she's a diva, that one!
