Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge and a Tip

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks so much to those who participated in last weeks Inspiration Challenge, there were a lot of wonderful takes on the photo!  It's everyone's favorite time of the month at Bloggers Challenge - it's Sketch time!

Here's this weeks sketch - feel free to rotate it, and if need be move panels back or forward, but try to keep the sketch stick to the sketch.  See the details below on how to play along. 

I also wanted to reshare a tip I previously posted in regard to emails coming from noreply-comment@blogger.com.  I've noticed more and more people who leave comments have that address appear in place of their actual email address.  To read how you can fix yours (or check to see if yours comes through that way - read my original post here

For my card, I moved the thinner panel back, as I didn't want to cover up the wonderful Graphic 45 papers.


I went a little distress happy, sponging all  panels, including this handsome image from the Artistic Outpost Gatsby plate.  The Gatsby image and sentiment are stamped in Black Archival on Vanilla card stock.  Using the Burnt Edges Technique, I added Ranger Pumice Stone, Brushed Corduroy, Frayed Burlap and Black Soot Distress Inks.

Details:
Stamps - Artistic Outpost Gatbsy
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Pumice Stone, Brushed Corduroy, Frayed Burlap, Black Soot
Card Stock - Ruby Red, Vanilla, Black
Other - Graphic 45 Proper Gentleman Ink Blending Tool, Craft Mat, Dimensionals

Other Challenge Entered:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Distressing
