Try It Out Tuesday #23 - Get Sketchy

Hello and welcome to another Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week on the SCACD blog we are getting SKETCHY with a fabulous sketch challenge created by our own Suzanne Dean. This week's sketch does double-duty, both as our DT challenge AND as the monthly sketch on the PCP page for SCACD. If you play along with us here using this sketch and upload your creation to PCP with the keyword "scacdjune", you will be entered into the random drawing to win a stamp from the store! So get inspired and get sketchy with us at SCACD!

Here is my creation, featuring this awesome Adirondack Chair from Lockhart Stamp Company. I stamped the chair with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers {bet you get sick of hearing me say that part of the card-making recipe, huh?!}. I cut out the finished image using Labels 1 Nestabilities. Added some clouds to the background and used my all-time favorite, Lily-Kate paper from Basic Grey. For the long skinny panel on the left side I hand-drew in some stitching to go along with the more "shabby" or "rustic" look to this card.

Pretty simple today, but I have to say, that chair looks good no matter how you color it!! All it needs is an ocean view and it would be my idea of paradise!! Thanks for stopping by today. Be sure to visit the rest of the SCACD DT blogs {links in my left sidebar} and the SCACD store blog for more sketchy inspiration.
