TESC145 From the Whole Herd

August 26th, 2011

Happy Friday!  It’s time for another Taylored Expresison Sketch Challenge and I hope you’ll play along.  TE stamps are not required. You have two weeks to play and one lucky player will be drawn to win a gift certificate to the TE Store!

Today’s sketch came from Crew Member Rachel Sztonyk.

I pulled out Green Acres and the August Key Ingredients featuring Echo Park Country Drive.  When Green Acres was in development, I remember being excited to stack the animals on top of each other.  But then when the set came I had so many ideas for it, I just never got around to doing that.  So this card is a long time coming.

Images are colored with copics and I sponged some Baja Breeze ink around them.  I used the Picket Fence Taylored Die for the element on the right side of the sketch.  Spellbinders used are Labels 4 and Wonky Rectangles.  I just wasn’t happy with the card and kept staring at it until I realized it needed a very narrow black layer to make it pop.  Yep, that did the trick.  Embellishments are Stickles (yellow and fruit punch), KaiserCraft black pearls, and a couple of buttons from my stash.

Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has in store:

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
