April Sisterhood Sunday - A Fishy Sketch

And the times - they are a changin' !!

The Sisterhood Sunday Challenges are changing!   We will have just one challenge a month - posted on the 1st Sunday of each month - and you will have all month to participate!    The winner each month will be announced when the next challenge is posted on the 1st of the next month! (are you with me?!) The winner will get to choose a Rubbernecker stamp set of choice!

Here's the Sisterhood Sunday challenge for April - a great sketch by Jacquie!

Here's my card using the sketch
I inked up the fish bowl with 3 Dewdrop Memento Inks - Bamboo leaves on the plant, Desert Sand on the gravel and Summer Sky for the bowl.  It's so easy to ink separate areas on a stamp with the Dewdrop shaped inks.  I die cut the image with a circle Nestability - inking around the edges with Ranger Distress Scattered Straw before taking it out of the die. Then I colored the image with Copics.   I sponged some Ranger Distress Weathered Wood over the inside of the fishbowl.   I stamped Rufus in black, colored him with Copics, cut him out and layered him over the fishbowl with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment on Barely Banana and punched it with the Keytag punch by SU.

I used a rectangle panel instead of the triangle on the sketch.  I embossed it with the Polka Dots embossing folder by Life Style Crafts.
