CCEE - Ahoy There!

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I had a fun one demoing at a local papercraft show, it is fun to be able to catch up with all those stamping friends I have made over the years.

It is time for another challenge with my CCEE Stamper friends. This week the challenge is a sketch challenge which you can see below.

I decided to do something a little different today with my card, instead of using designer paper or plain card for the left panel I decided to have a scene. I stamped the Scene panel from Starving Artistamps onto my panel and colored it with my copic markers. I stamped the pirate on my other panel and then lined it up with my scene and drew in the areas for the sand, sea, mountains and sky to match the scene.

I attached the treasure chest to the area where the circle is shown on the sketch ... this was for a sentiment or embellishment. I did tweak the sketch a little as adding the ribbon to my card where it is shown on the sketch would not have looked right being that my panel was a scene ... so I added the sentiment lower down, which is kind of the same shape as ribbon would have been ..... well almost *wink*

Oh how fun this is! I was considering purchasing that background. You may just have "sealed the deal" with this one! Hmmm, wasn't it you that swayed me to buy the winter background from Alota? How do you always know what I'm thinking? Ha!
