2 Sketches 4 You

I have just completed a card sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You. I absolutely love the simplicity of these sketches and also love the samples that the DT come up with. Very inspiring.

Well for my take on the sketch I have gone with a little Cafe Shoppe. I have made the canopy like they do on cafes and shopps - just added some spotty pp and a hand cut scalloped edge.

I stamped the door onto green cardstock and also a window stamp that I have - I just cut the centre out so you could see the "Candy Cane Shoppe" sign which I stamped onto acetate to resemble the glass in a window. I also stamped a little window box stamp and coloured it in with water colour paints and also added some dimensional magic. Oh and I also added a little "open" sign for the door. I had heaps of fun with this one.

Here is the sketch and the card.

Thanks for popping in.

Luv Sandie
