Sketch w/inspiration from Jodi

Hi friends - welcome back for another sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers - hope you'll check it out and join us this week, it's an easy and super fun one! (you can see the sketch below also)

I saw THIS card inspired by Jodi and did a CASE (copy and share everything); I used a different stamp set, one of my all-time faves, Doodle Buds by WPlus9. I also saw a video by Sandy Allnock using this same stamp set and decided to try REALLY REALLY hard to be a bit artistic and not such a perfectionist - my cards are far from perfect, but I definitely stress too much over coloring! :(

I cut the whip cream frame using Mama Elephant's Femme Frames and mounted with dimensional foam; so the black piece is recessed lower than the frame (impossible to tell from the photos though). I splattered on some Hero Arts Unicorn ink spray; the images were stamped in Memento Black on Copic paper but colored with Zig Clean Color brushes using no water.

I finished it off with SSS's Birthday Flowers stamp set, some white polka dots with everything layered onto a Royal Velvet card base.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you join the fun this week! Take care!
