Sketchbook Saturday #120

Hey there. Just stopping in with another card today...

I love everything Iwana Palamountain does. I've had my eye on her and finally get a chance to participate in one of her challenges on her blog!

Here's her sketch.

I actually created two cards because with the first card, I realised as I was doing it, is a direct RIP-OFF from a Jennifer McGuire card you can see HERE:

Seriously, I'm so ashamed! Please tell me you do that sometimes too. It's like a subconscious thing and then when I finish it hits me like a ton of bricks. DUH! You didn't create this! You Crazy! (I had to post it anyway cause it's still cute, even though its not mine ; )

So after I got that out of my system, I sat down and made another card. Much more me. All me, in fact (although I did use one of her favourite Hero Arts die cuts, which is one of my favs too...)

I created this "thank you" die cut using a marker water-colour technique I found on a blog when I was searching for an art project for a class friend and I do here at our condo. And wouldn't you know it, right now I can't find the link! EEK!! I may have to do a little tutorial to show you how if I can't find it because really, its totally worth trying. 
 It's really fun because it makes amazing paper for die cuts because no two pieces are the same! They always come out different. Which I love.
I finished up by embossing (or debossing... depending on the side you use) for my card base. Glued that die cut down and called it good.
so there ya go. Challenge done!

Thanks so much for stopping in.
Speaking of my art class, I gotta run. Were making wall art displays with the kids today. Lots of painting to be done!

Oh my gosh, they're both absolutely fantastic! I actually like your first card more than Jennifer's, it has some serious oomph :)
(it does happen to me too!)
