Here is this week's Sketch and my Design Team Creation:

As you can see by the photo I rotated my card sketch 90* to the left.

I printed my image on watercolor paper as I normally do. This is my favorite media to use with all my images. I colored my image with colored pencils and blended with baby oil.
The background sky I created by covering my image with Eclipse art masking tape and chalked with a light blue. This was my first time using the product and just love it.
My designer paper choice for this card was the Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris collection.
I accented the background with some rough colored pencil highlights and distress inks.
I created the bottom clouds by altering the initial image in my photoshop program and adding the sentiment from the collection on one of the altered images.
A few 2mm white pearls and pink crystal accents worked perfect for the swirl ends.

Check out all my Design team-mates cards over at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge for some amazing inspiration. These ladies blow me away each week with their Gorgeous creations.

Thanks for stopping By Have a Happy Crafty Day!
