Stamp camp card and a sketch

This is another card from last weekend's stamp camp. I used Petals and Paisleys paper, Cool Caribbean, Whisper White and a transparency for the window. I punched out the designer paper first and then used that as a guide as to where to punch the CC. The flower is stamped in black StazOn and colored on the opposite side with Sharpies, I then sandwiched it between the 2 layers. I added white cardstock to the inside to make the flower stand out more.

Then I had a few pieces for this card left over so I decided I might as well do a Bella card :)

For the scalloped rectangle I punched 2 squares of old olive and then layered them to fit around the Bella image. I used the ribbon to cover up the line where the 2 squares join. I then used the other side of the paper from the card above to match the old olive. I think it is a fun non-traditional baby card. Hmmm....maybe for my Sister-in-law when she has the new baby.

Last night after class I had a few minutes to play on the computer so I decided to try to figure out how to do sketches in Adobe. I am still learning but I think I have the basics figured out (if anyone has any tips I would appreciate it). I want to do some of the sketches I did from my scrapping magazines. Last night I did a sketch for the Bella card from my last post but it seems to be lost somewhere on my computer. When I find it I will share :)

This is from the Bella card above. (I didn't notice until now that the blur at the bottom is where my name is.)

Let me know if you try this sketch. I would love to see what others do with it.

Awesome card and sketch. Up to my eyeballs in Paper Arts A Thon (and loving it!) but when I get a minute I'll try the sketch.
