Grand Prize Winner Sweet Sketch Wednesday

One of my favourite challenge blogs is Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Each week Arlana brings us such incredible sketches. The design team members are fabulous and leave such wonderful comments on my blog. I am excited to tell you that last week I won the Grand Prize! You can see my card here.

This week I have another cutie to show you. My dad and brother see all of my creations. My brother, a motorsport freelance photographer, is convinced that some of the car creations could be sold to car enthusiats. It was suggested by some of his collegues that if I frame them, they could be sold as little works of art instead of as cards. I have been trying out different frames to see what would look the best. I settled on a frame from my local craft supply store Michaels that is very close to the look I want to achieve. I am going to use the same vendor that my brother uses to frame some of his real car photographs. They are higher quality and made in America.

Please excuse the bits in the frame (I didnt clean the frame before I framed it). And I noticed the ribbon bunched up on the right side. Things I'm not used to since I don't work with frames much.

I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday, but I flipped it, moved the "flower" to the left side and added a sentiment. The black is the outer part of the frame.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: LOTV Zooming Along, PTI Sentiment
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers, PTI Vintage Touch
Cardstock: SU Night of Navy
Paper: Basic Grey Oliver
Accessories: Tim Holtz Gaget Gears borders die, Tim Holtz Gears, May Arts Burgandy Ribbon, Frame from Michaels.

Thanks for visiting!
