SCS Wednesday Sketch Challenge - SC171

Whoohoo! I am on top of things today! The first project I tackled today was to create a card for today's SCS Sketch Challenge - SC171

Honestly, when I saw the sketch, I was like "what the heck am I going to create with this sketch?" KWIM. It's so out of my norm. . .but interestingly, I love it. It's different and I was able to create a card that I liked.

Hey, if you are going to participate in today's challenge, comment me with a link to your card on SCS and I'll go check it out and comment your card! We gotta support one another! Here is mine: Click Here. LOL!!

I watercolored my image using markers, aquapainter on watercolor paper, cut up the image, and layered it with foam tape. The dots were created using the Sakura Souffle pen in yellow. The rest of the card is basically layering and adding the embellishments and cutting the scallops with the Fiskar Scallop Scissors.

I was going to create another card but unfortunately, I have other obligations today so I can't until I'm done with my obligations. I gotta focus on my priorities today. Because I'm completely on my own while my kids are in school for this week. . .my husband comes home from his business trip on Friday. . .I'm just doing my own thing and playing along with these challenges. Unfortunately, I've put off a few things that are more important. Arrrgggh! Why, Maria? Why can't you stick to the program? I guess I'm just taking advantage of my free time.

My husband works from his home office. . .meaning he doesn't go anywhere, KWIM. Although, he's too busy to notice that I'm in my craft room, he does come out of his office to make coffee, eat lunch, or take breaks and well, that's when I get busted. . .LOL! He is SUPA supportive but I do feel bad that he is working while I'm playing and he does notice that the dishes are piling up or he wants me to run a few errands, like going to the post office, call so and so, or clean up the house. Because he's not home right now. . .well, you can pretty much figure out what's going on. . .LOL!! It's all play and no work! So, I guess I have to work on a few things. . .


Here's a few details on my card:

Stamp: CTMH Fair Blossoms
Paper: Deja View designer paper, CTMH Cranberry and Sunflower
Ink: CTMH Markers, Sakura Souffle
Accessories: CTMH Bigger brads, Grosgrain and organdy ribbon, Coluzzle Cutting System, Fiskar Scallop Scissors

Wow!!!!! You are really cranking out some beautiful cards for the SCS Challenges Maria. Your card is beautiful and I love your embellishments. Wouldn't be nice if we all had maids? This way we could play all day and not worry about dishes etc. Take care and I can't wait to see your second version of this challenge.

Ooh, I love this card. It's so gorgeous!

I know what you mean about feeling guilty about playing while the husband is working. I'll throw in a couple of loads of laundry and straighten up real quick before everyone gets home to make sure it looks like I'm doing something besides playing. lol.
