Horizontal Sketch Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

Hi all!

First off, thank you so much for all the sweet comments being left on my posts. I so appreciate the kindness. :) Second, this week has been a lot of fun on the Moxie Fab World site. If you haven't checked them out, and you want to play along w/the sketch I based my card off of, click here.

It's no secret I love a good sketch...and this one made me very excited! Actually, it's the fastest card I think I've ever done! The idea hit pretty quickly and I think the card was done in less than 20 minutes! Here's the sketch:

And here's my take:
I started out w/a Fiskars inchie stamp from the bird/flight set. I knew I wanted a dark base and a pop of color. Finally decided on silver pigment ink on black. I stamped the image on scraps 3 times so I had a rough idea of where I wanted the image placed. Then, I took the flower--from JoAnn Essentials--and took a script stamp and stamped that on the flower, too. You just can't see it very well. Then I added the pearl. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Final step was to round the corners and the card was done!

This was a great sketch! Although I did the dark base and metallic ink, I've already thought of different color combos and even different image ideas for it.

Hope you can play along!
