Good morning peeps. It's my first challenge over at Stampotique and this week it's a sketch. Yep I groaned and moaned too - you all know how much I love sketches!!! :D Anyhow, once I'd got over the initial OMG a sketch what am I going to do panic and started to work I was actually reasonably pleased with the end results of my efforts! This is the sketch that we were given to work with.
This is what I eventually did with it. Yep, I simply flipped the sketch onto it's side to make my graduation card. I hope you like it!
I started off by tearing a page from an old book and layering up onto my card base. I then applied a thin coat of Gesso and whilst it was wet swiped some blue acrylic paint through with my fingers. Whilst I waited for it to dry I matted and layer cardstock to make the blackboard. Next came the fun part where I drew Owl With Wings some accessories, coloured them with Promarkers and made the wire frame glasses. To finish I glued everything in place and then wrote the sentiment with a white gel pen.
I really do hope that you'll join us over at Stampotique for this challenge. You don't even need to use one of our stamps, although we'd love it if you did!
Thanks for stopping by today.
