Hello! A quick share today because I am down to the last few minutes to enter at Sketch Saturday and combo with some other challenges too. I loved this past week's sketch and just now was able to finish my card.
The background was stamped with Distress Oxide ink on a very pale green cardstock. You get a very aged look when you do the Watercolor stamping on lighter cardstock (as opposed to the bleached look on dark cardstocks that I showed here). I really like both looks!
Then I finished up the sketch with simple stamping with a nice silhouette of a bicycle. I am hoping this will work for boys of all ages. I like the throwback style of bike and the jacks on the patterned paper scrap.
Supplies: Hero Arts Numbers background stamp and CL481 stamp set, Versafine Onyx black ink, Distress Oxide ink Iced Spruce, My Mind's Eye Hootenanny 6x6 patterned paper pad, cardstock from my stash
I would love to participate in these challenges:

So many pretty things are growing this time of year. I wanted to share this sweet little Christmas Cactus cutting that has started to grow lots of new leaf segments! My MIL let me take this cutting in February, and now it is really taking off. Hard to see in the photo, but even the single segment leaf cutting has new growth. This is actually a Thanksgiving cactus, but most people don't mind which holiday you call it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day!
