It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!

Konichiwa!! (Hello in Japanese!!) This is my second post for today, so please read through this and then scroll down so you don't miss my other exciting news for today!!

I am really excited because my first submission for Sweet Sketch Wednesday is up on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog! Arlana has some really great sketches that I know you will want to play along with. She adds just the right amount of parts to her sketches to make them flow well and not be too busy! The balance is perfect and I think they are easy to use and make your own as well.

Be sure to hop on over to the blog when you are through reading here. You can start Following her blog so that you won't miss out on her new sketches each Wednesday!!

Here is sketch the SSW sketch #2

And here is what I did with it...

The Fine Print: Sketch: Sweet Sketch Wednesdays #2; DP: KaiserCraft (Bloom); Stamp: Stamping Bellas (Ginger Ketto); Ink: Amuse (Black); Markers: Copics; Pen: Sakura (Black Glaze on hair); Stickles: Platinum; Flowers: Prima; Ribbon: Michael’s; Brads: Basic Grey; Sentiment: Computer Generated Font (Rickshaw).

I finally had a chance to ink up my new Ketto stamps from Stamping Bella. I think these images are just adorable!! This one is called Ginger. She makes me think of the time that I spent in Japan. My now ex-husband was stationed in Yokosuka's Naval Base there for three years and I spent about 2 1/2 of them there with him. In fact my second daughter was born over there! I brought my first born over there when she was just three months old. I have some great memories of living off base in a Japanese neighborhood until we got into base housing. It was a really cool experience that I will never forget!

Anyway... on to the details of this card. I left the sketch pretty true to itself and just added one extra panel to put my stamped image onto. I needed her to pop off the page a little more and she seemed to blend into the background paper when I placed her directly onto the DP. I hope you like what you see. Keep coming back every Wednesday for some more cards with these sweet sketches!

If you are interested in applying for her DT, please visit her blog and find out what to do. She is looking for about 7 more members for the team!

Sayonara (Goodbye) for now and have a great day! May your bucket overflow with great memories from days gone by!
