While browsing some fellow crafters' blogs last week, I discovered a new sketch challenge blog called Retro Sketches. It looks really fun! I like the idea of recycling old sketch ideas. I know there are a lot of oldies but goodies out there! I love the simplicity of Retro Sketch #2 this week. I think it packs a powerful punch. I grabbed my October Afternoon Rocket Age paper collection and Papertrey Ink's Boy Basics: Out of this World stamp set and made this card:
What a cute birthday card for a little boy! Or even a "just because" or congratulations card. I made the mistake of stamping the flames with a non-copic friendly ink and the ink bled horrendously when I started coloring. Aack! I had to start over fresh with the popped up panel. Luckily it wasn't too much to do; like the time I glued a completed panel on a card base upside down! I was too tired to start over on that one.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
