I've been busy with family and other design obligations, so I've been absent from the Saturday Sketch Challenges over at Stamping 411 -- and I've missed the latest creations by the Operators! I'm back this week for the Saturday Sketch Challenge 198. It's a fabulous sketch and I hope that my card does justice to it! Because of the watercoloring, this card fills the bill for the Splitcoast Stampers April Creative Crew gallery -- go play along if you haven't already!
Check the sketch out for yourselves and see what you can come up with, too. By the way, did you all know that Stamping 411 is Stampin' Up! only now? This is great -- let's promote our favorite products!
This card is done using both sides one sheet from the Nautical Expedition dsp. I used the peeling wallpaper technique to "show through" the pattern on the left side of the large layer. The scallop edge on the right and the sentiment are both using the same "ledger" pattern.
