I'm popping in on this rainy Friday — but it's still Friday! — with a card for Leslie's sketch challenge, CSSC #4. Her sketch:
Oh look! I added a cat to the design. At first I had trouble with this sketch, since I don't have a lot of big bold sentiments. Luckily, I did have this die cut from Emily that was just right. For the background, I was inspired by this technique. I sponged and blended three shades of distress ink before water-stamping with a newsprint background to get more of an abstract, textured look than actual images. While it was still wet, I spritzed it with some glimmer mist, just for fun. This close-up almost shows the shimmer...
And the cat? I wanted a small critter to contrast with the giant sentiment, and I like the way he appears to be photo-bombing the layout. :D
Hope you'll stop by again tomorrow for the unveiling of the latest Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge!
