Windy Day

Happy Wednesday friends! We have such a terrific sketch this week for the challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. And one of everyone's favorite digi stamp companies, Saturated Canary, is our sponsor so there's lots of inspiration to be shared today.

Here's our sketch created by my team mate Sally. You don't often find a triangle in card designs/layouts and I think this is so creative.  I had fun creating with this one and I hope you'll give it a try and join us in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.

Saturated Canary Digis
Our fabulous sponsor this week is Krista Smith, owner and illustrator of Saturated Canary. Krista's images are perfect for all occasions and are such a delight to color and create with.  The Grand Prize winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week will receive two free digi images from Saturated Canary.  Thanks for the wonderful sponsorship and your generousity Krista!

I chose this delightful Saturated Canary image called Windy Day. I really wanted to try coloring the long windy hair with my Copics and think the highlights turned out pretty well here.  The papers used are American Crafts' Dear Lizzy line called 5th & Frolic and I think the chevron print paper in the background works really well with the triangle theme of the sketch.  I added some pearl and lace stickles droplets around the image panel to provide interest and texture and to fill in the extra white space.  I stickled the flower in her hair for some dimension as well.

Please visit us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and check out this wonderful sketch with other papers, embellishments and Saturated Canary images.  You'll be inspired by the creativity of the design team this week.  It would be fantastic if you joined in the challenge too!

Thanks for stopping by!
