CCMC233 - Sketch Challenge

This week at Create with Connie & Mary, we have a sketch challenge.

I struggled with how to use the three horizontal elements until I decided to flip the sketch on its side and use one image cut into three panels.

I used the Countryside set and stamped the truck onto watercolor paper, then colored it using reinkers and blender pen.  I sponged around the outside lightly with Crumb Cake ink before cutting into three equal panels.  This was then layered onto Not Quite Navy cardstock.  The First Edition layer has been distressed and over-stamped with some of the smaller images from the set.  The Riding Hood Red banner has been run through the Woodgrain EF.

The color combo came from the Color Coach - love that thing!

Thanks for looking.  Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary to see what the rest of the challenge team have come up with.

Wow this is a fabulous card and great take on the sketch! I struggled with what to put on the 3 panels, but you've knocked this one out of the ball park Karren! I'm loving the distressing and your colouring is perfect!

This card turned out great. I thought the same thing about using one larger image across the panels but then ended up doing something else. I do think it is a great idea for this sketch.
