Artistic Outpost - Sketch Challenge



Artistic Outpost is celebrating their 2nd Birthday, and in celebration has issued a PRIZE CHALLENGE. The challenge is pretty simple, just use the sketch shown here and create a Fall or Birthday Themed card using Artistic Outpost images. Once you create you card, head over to the Artistic Outpost Blog and leave your direct link on the Challenge Post - you have until October 23rd to enter. All entries that use the sketch/theme and Artistic Outpost images will be entered into a Random Drawing for a $25 Artistic Outpost Gift Certificate!



I used images from Old Grist Mill to create my card for this challenge. Stamping the image in Black on Watercolor paper and coloring with the Marker Watercoloring Technique. I also used the Torn Frames Technique to frame my pieces to add to the rusting look of my image. As you can see, I opted to delete the brads from my finished card - use the sketch as inspiration to create your card, you can even rotate it - we'd love to have you play along.
