Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #18

This is for Beate's latest Weekend Sketch Challenge! I LOVED this simple layout. The hardest thing was deciding on the stamps! I haven't used my Zoofari in a while, so I thought I'd pull that out. When I was looking through my scrap bin, I found a piece of this glittery-striped paper from the DCWV Glitter Stack. I thought it would go perfectly with the zebra. The paper also took care of deciding the color scheme. I almost didn't add the red, but I was afraid the card would be too bland. The zebra is colored using the Stampin' Write markers in Basic Black and Going Grey. I used the blender pen a little to add some color in the white stripes. I can't wait to see how different everyone's card is! Isn't it amazing how even a simple sketch can look totally different depending on the stamps and papers someone uses? So, check out Beate's blog. I'm sure she has another amazing sample to show you with this sketch! Also check to see what Lori, Jenn and Sharon have come up with. I can't wait to see myself because I'm sure they are all AWESOME! As you're reading this, I'm probably already on my way to Louisville Regionals! I'll share some pics with you when I get back! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Zoofari, Wild About You; Paper- DCWV Glitter Stack, red, Whisper White; Ink- Basic Black, Going Grey, Real Red; Accessories- small and large oval punch, paper piercer, Making Memories brads, Mega Scallop circle punch, Jumbo circle punch, blender pen, Aquapainter.
