Sketch Frenzy Friday 012513

Happy Friday all! Long week here, but ready for another Robotics tournament this weekend! Go Crete!! Hope your week went well!!

Time for another round of Sketch Frenzy Friday!! Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Kim Innis.

My card looks a whole lot like the sketch doesn't it? Color and all. Sometimes they really speak to me! Actually, it's probably more of a procrastination thing! But, I started out thinking the whale would work well either where the oval shape is, or possibly on an oval there. Then the shading of the sketch made me think of shading the layers, and what better colors for a whale then blues??

The card base is Basic Gray. A Whisper White layer accents the background of Island Indigo, Baja Breeze and Pool Party. I layered the blues together then used the Jumbo Oh, Wave! wheel on them with the Illuminate Glimmer Watermark pad. The saying was stamped in Indigo at the bottom. The accent stripes are Pool Party and Island Indigo ribbon. The whale was stamped in Baja Breeze on Whisper White and cut with the coordinating Clearlit Die. The oval was cut with the Ovals Collection framelits. The whale is attached with dimensionals and has a rhinestone eye for the final accent.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you stop over at the main SFF blog to see what the rest of the team created, AND to play along!! Have a GREAT weekend all!!
