Hanna Sketch Challenge

It's my turn to host the Hanna Stamps Challenge this week. I decided that it would be fun to do a sketch challenge. You can see the challenge here and use the keywords HSC21 when you upload to SCS. Can't wait to see your cards!

I just got a new air compressor to use with my copic markers and I couldn't wait to use it. I started my card by stamping Riley and cutting out my circle. I colored Riley and then created a mask to put over my image. I used my air compressor to spray the sky and water. I LOVE it!! It was expensive, but I can see I am going to be getting a lot of use out of it.

This card may look somewhat familiar. I used the same sketch and similar patterned paper on this card. I just liked how it turned out and decided to use the sketch for the Hanna Challenge.

I added dimensional glaze to the dots on the inner tube and the water drops. The rest of the card is pretty straight forward. Let me know if you have any questions about something.

Here's the sketch for this week's challenge. I hope you join us. Can't wait to see what you all come up with!
