Hit The Road Jack

It's Twinkling Tuesday time again and this week we have our sweet Madelynn back with a sketch challenge for us.

For those of you who don't know the story behind Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketch challenge, here's a recap: Madelynn is Jessica Diedrich's (AKA Club Anya VP and The Whimsical Butterfly) 8 year old daughter who started skething layouts because she would see her mum working with them all the time. Madelynn has her own design team and blog and every week creates a new sketch for anyone to play along with.

When I saw this week's sketch I will admit that I freaked out just a little! I started racking my brain for stamps in my stash that were individual yet still tie together well. Then I pulled the Inkadinkado Road Trip set out and thought the caravan's would work really well!

I adore the old silver airbuses and mini campervan's like these! I love how their bodyshapes are rounded and very little straight edges to them. Which is why I like VW beetles - all curves! :)

Nothing much to this card but I think that's why it works. I stamped the caravans on Georgia Pacific cardstock and colored them in with Going Gray and Cool Caribbean. Instead of using some ribbon, I drew the horizontal lines behind the images with a Signo pen. I think anything wider would have detracted from the images. Then I just added a couple of brads and stamped the sentiment for the 'third' image in the layout. I popped the patterned paper layer as well as the caravans onto dimensionals for some added depth.

If you think you'd like to play this week's sketch challenge, just upload your card to PCP or SCS using the keyword MTTSC18 and leave a link to it on Madelynn's Twinkling blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great Tuesday!
