Life is an Adventure

Welcome to another fabulous sketch from SugarPea Designs!  Check out this week's sketch:


I decided to use the Wanderlust set and make a masculine card and this is what I came up with:


I started with a Slate card base and sponged over a grid stencil to add a bit of interest to the background.  I then die-cut a black panel with the Air Mail Set die and backed it with some Smoke card.  The flags from Stitched Flags were cut from Smoke and Black cardstock and stamped with the arrows from the set.

The circular element came from the compass, which I stamped onto Fog cardstock using black ink.  After fussy-cutting it out, I colored the center heart with a red Copic and then applied some Glossy Accents.

Finally, I white embossed the sentiment onto the black panel and put all the elements together.
