April Sketch Challenge at SNS

Have you seen the Sketch Challenges over at SNS?  Each month a new sketch is released for you to have fun and create with.  And one lucky participant wins a stamp set of their choice!  Fulls details for this monthly contest and how you can enter can be found on the SNS blog page HERE.  Check it out!

So I was playing with some of SNS's fun car stamps when I realized I had a great idea for this month's sketch.  Don't you just love how the road scene mimics the sketch?!  Fun, fun, fun.

SNS April Sketch Challenge

I turned the sketch on it's side, used the road as the main design element and then used two different fun scenic papers to complete the look.  I just loved those cute little clouds & trees for this look.  Granny was done in Memento ink and colored with Copic markers.  Isn't she a hoot?!  It's a little hard to see but I also added some Sparkling Snow glitter to the stripes on the road and around Granny for a little more "pop". (Remember to click on photo's for the best view).

Let me know what you think and don't forget to click on the link above to see all the details for the contest.  Plus you can see what a few more of the designers did with this month's sketch while you're there too.  Sure hope you'll join in on the fun with this month's challenge!

Julie, this is soooo cute! It also reminds me of the old Sylvester-Tweety Bird cartoons with Granny. She was always smiling LOL The background papers are perfect for your darling card, and the use of the glitter on the highway and around the frame. What a great way of using this sketch! I need to get busy on it!
