2 Sketches 4 You Laura's Sketch 49

Happy Monday!! It's time for another card for 2 Sketches 4 You! Here is Laura's Sketch #49:

Here is my card:

This week's sponsor is Jane's Doodles digital stamps at Squagglefly!! I chose to work with Jane's fabulous Norah's Ark. This is such a cute image with some of Jane's super cute animals in it! Hope you like the blue elephant and the pink hippo in my little world! =)

I rotated Laura's sketch 180 degrees to get to this. Hope you can see it! =) The sky is stamped using Hero Arts' Clouds stamp and the waves are made using emboss resist technique. The flourish is clear embossed using this stamp also by Hero Arts and inked with tumbled glass distress ink then punched with a EK Success border punch. I used some rolled up glue dots for each layer of the waves to give it some dimension.

I stamped the sentiment from this set then drew the cloud shape around it before I cut it out. I had so much fun coloring Jane's fun image and making this card! =) You can find all of Jane's digital stamps here.

That's all for now. Hope you can play along with us at 2 Sketches 4 You this week! =)
