Sketch Girls Challenge #19

Not only is a nice, long weekend this week it is all time for another Sketch Girl Challenge. This month's challenge is sponsored by Sew Many Cards. I created this card by printing Miki from Sew Many Cards on some yellow polka dot paper. I colored him in over the polka dots. I figured that since Copics tend to almost take on an opaque appearance on Kraft they would probably do the same thing on a light polka dot paper. I was right and am quite proud of myself for thinking of this one. I distressed everything with some ranger ink and mounted Miki the Monkey on felt purchased from Felt on the Fly that was cut with a nestability die.

Here is SG19. I used a circle instead of the square and stamped the strip down the center. Always remember that a sketch is to be used to inspire your card layout, and if you want to use an oval, circle, octagon, or any other shape for the matter it is okay. You can also rotate the sketch (even at an angle). Have fun with it!

Make sure you check out what the other gals created and stop by the Sketch Girl blog to play along --Sew Many Cards is offering a prize for the SG19 winner.
