Stamp Off Back on Your Feet Sketch

Welcome to our Stamp Off challenge, with Buffy, Susan
and myself.   Today we are doing a sketch challenge.

Our sketch challenge comes from page 140 of the
Stampin' Up 2019-20 catalog.  Any time that I need inspiration,
I page through the Stamping' Up! catalog and look at 
colors or card sketches.

First, I need to say that I deviated from the sketch just a bit.
I created the elements, but was not happy once I arranged them,
so I moved the sentiment panel to the top and made the frame
part of the layer behind the turtle.  I knew that I wanted to use that little turtle, so it had to be shown off properly.   I don't think that Susan and Buffy will kick me off the team for these changes!

I love the Back on Your Feet set on page 83.  It's a cute set
and works well for coloring with the Blends.   In this example,
I used Calypso Coral, Smoky slate, Pool Party,
Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive.  The ferns are
from the Tropical Dies on page 196.  I also used the 
Stitched Rectangles dies on page 196 to cut out the 
Soft Sea Foam layer, and then ran things through the 
Brick and Mortar 3D Embossing Folder.  Adding a bit
of VersaMark helps highlight the brick.

Thanks for stopping, and please check out what
Susan and Buffy have done with this sketch challenge!

The best part of our challenges is that it is ok to deviate! That is what being creative is all about. Your card is adorable! I love that little turtle!

Totally ok to deviate! I love your card - and that little turtle is so adorable. The tropical ferns are perfect with him, and the colors are so happy. This card is sure to brighten anyone's day!

You're right, Jackie - such an adorable topsy-turvy turtle has to take center stage! Your colouring is fabulous - every detail is so clear.
