I’m not keen on sketch challenges – I find it difficult to start from a sketch, but I wanted to enter the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge, so I decide to give this a go. Below is the sketch for the challenge.
I cut a panel of ‘Strawberry Slush’ and embossed it with my Crafts-Too ‘Tropical Flowers’ embossing folder, then I cut it to 2 1/2 inches wide and used my corner rounding punch to round the corners of the pannel. I cut a panel of ‘Pistachio Pudding’ 11cmx 6cm and again used the corner rounding punch on this panel too. Using the ‘Aloha’ sentiment stamp from ‘My Island‘ stamp set I stamped it in VersaMark on the Pistachio Pudding card and sprinkled it with Pool Party embossing powder.
I used my Waltzingmouse ‘Gift Card It‘ Cutting Edge die to cut some ‘Crisp Cantaloupe’ card. I stamped the larger palm trees in ‘Baked Brown Sugar’ ink on white card, then fussy cut it out and attached it to the Crisp Cantaloupe card with roll-on glue.
I attached the Strawberry Slush embossed panel to the card base with double-sided tape. Then I attached some foam pads to some of the two other piece of the panels that will not be over the Strawberry Slush panel & the rest had roll-on glue, then were attached over the embossed panel.
Last but not least I stamped the sentiment in Baked Brown Sugar ink on the card base.
I’ll be entering this card in the Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge #19 – sketch challenge.

This is one of the WMS sets I do not have. Now I *really* want it! Perfect colours for summer. I like how the embossed (dry and heat) panels add extra interest. Lovely!
I absolutely love your take on the sketch (and this one is tough). Great colours, lovely embossed detail and the summer holiday theme is just fab. Thanks so much for playing along with Waltzingmouse Fanatics!
Thank you both! I haven’t used this set before, but I love challenges because they get you to go through all your stamp sets & use them!
I’m so glad people like the marriage of ‘My Island’ and the SU! colours 🙂
Well perhaps you should try sketches more often – you rocked this one! Love the detials in your panels.
Thanks for joining the fanatics.
Thank you for choosing me as the No 1 Fan! I guess I will have to try sketches more often!! 🙂 x
