Paper Crafts magazine Presents: Bonus Sketch Blog Hop

Happy Friday friend!  I am so glad you stopped by today, because Paper Crafts Magazine is hosting a fun Blog Hop today in celebration of their newest special issue, Card Ideas For Paper Crafters!  I love a good sketch and was truly inspired by all of the amazing sketches provided for this particular issue.  Do you have a copy yet?  If not, be sure to leave a comment here on my blog for a chance to win one (comment must be made by midnight (MDT) on Sunday, August 28) or go here to purchase it!  Also, there are some great bonus sketches available online for you to try here.

I chose to work with Chan's awesome sketch for my card today.  I went in a totally different direction with it than you would think this sketch might represent.  Those scallops?  I see waves...check it out:


Starting with two pieces of card stock, I die cut scallops from both and using their negatives adhered the panels to a white card base, trimming off the access.


I then ran a tan piece of card stock through my Big Shot with Papertrey Ink's Linen and Canvas Impression Plate to create the look of sand.  I tore it into a mound and attached it to my card base.


Stamped, colored and cut out the pelican from Paper Smooches Surf n' Turf set, along with the wood pilings that I stamped and cut out, adhering them to my sand mound.


Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from Word Up (Paper Smooches) and finished it off with some letter stickers from Lily Bee Designs.
