Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 206

Hooray! I'm so excited to share my Stamping 411 card with you this week…wanna know why? Because it was inspired by the awesome time we had last weekend at Nick's AAU baseball tournament in Long Island!! What a wonderful weekend we had…we left on Thursday, took the Ferry from Connecticut over, and we didn't come home until Monday! The weather couldn't have been more perfect! (well it may have been a little warm for the boys during the games, but the parents thought it was ideal!)

The whole team stayed in the same hotel, actually we had a block of rooms so we were all in the same hallway 🙂 The kids all ran around, played wiffle ball (because what do 11 boys do when not playing baseball? Play wiffle ball of course!), and swam in the pool.

Now for the card that matches the weekend, first here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

I really enjoyed making this card. I'm a huge fan of coloring anyway, but for the first time I tried the "outline with a marker & drag the color around with the blender pen" method, and I'm thrilled with the results, and it was super easy!

Here's what I used for my card:

Stamp Set: Sunny Fun

Ink: Basic Black StazOn, Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede, Pacific Point, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo

Card Stock: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper

Accessories: Neutrals Buttons, Tempting Turquoise Patterns dsp, Scallop Border Punch, Paper Piercing Tool
