Kazan Sketch 2



Welcome to our second week of sketches on 2 Sketches 4 You. As mentioned in a previous post Laura and I will alternate posting sketches each week. This weeks sketch is brought to you by Sakura. I have mentioned before that I am a huge fan of Sakura pens, especially the Souffle brand but today I bring to you my new favorite: The 3-D Ink Glaze pen. I used the black glaze pen to make the stitches and dots on this card and it is 3-D and it writes ultra smooth - looove them!

Sakura has a wonderful website that provides you with:
  • Product information
  • Pricing and ordering information
  • Store Locator for your area
  • Gorgeous artwork posted by Artists like Sharon Silver
  • and much more...
Please support this weeks sponsor by visiting them at: www.sakuraofamerica.com


This week we are giving away a fabulous set of Sakura Glaze 3-D Pens to one lucky card maker:
  • Please provide a link to your card by posting it on this thread
  • Deadline for all entries: Saturday June 14 at Midnight (US Mountain time)
  • Your card should be based off the sketch provided and can be of any theme
  • The winning card will be announced as the Card of the Week on Sunday, June 15 here at 2 Sketches 4 You.
  • Our sponsors do have special competitions directed through schools for all minors, we thus request that only persons 18 years and older submit cards for this competition.
  • International Cardmakers are welcome to enter.
Have fun - I can't wait to see all your beautiful work this week.

a portland granny said...

I did it! It was a fun card to make--I thought I was being really careful in following design, but still see that I left one mounting out, Oh well, I like it because I like the colors.

Thanks for this challenge. I am new to challenges, so I do get excited about it.

Oh! Almost forgot to add when you get to my blog, choose Sassafras and Gingerbread for viewing.

Blessings,
Joan
