Think Big Sketch Challenge!


Good Evening Everyone! Wow two posts in one day!!! I decided to play around this afternoon and do a card for the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge SC249. I couldn't wait to ink up this adorable set from Artful INKables. This is the first year, in four years, I actually have a woman teacher I can give a card to. I haven't had a woman teacher since I have been stamping...LOL!!! I thought this sweet little girl reading was perfect for a teacher card. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you enjoy my card.


Here's the Recipe


Image - Think Big Set - Stamped in Momento Ink colored with copics. Cut the girl out and popped her up on the books that come with this set. I also sponged the edges with Real Red Ink


Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Grey Lime Rickey Designer Paper


Accessories - Basic Grey Buttons, SU Ribbon

Hi crystal,
I love your card, and the image is so great for a teachers card. She reminds me of my daughter, she's 11 years old and never has her head out of a book. Reading is her first pass time and i'm so glad about that. I will have to put that image on my wish list.
Happy crafting
