Wednesday Sketch Challenge at The Outlawz Challenges

I am beginning to think that the name of my blog should be the "Negligent" Blogger as my getting around to posting seems to be so hit and miss.  Am not sure where the spring went to?   I can't blame it all on travel, but I did take a big trip in May  (a dream trip to Austria and Germany) and then a family related trip in June.  Getting ready for a trip and recuperating once I am home seems to take much of my time....LOL!
Once again Wednesday is here and a new sketch for The Outlawz Challenges is going on.  My "Sister" teammates have created gorgeous cards using the sketch below:

I must confess that I really struggled with this design.  It was not the layout as much as it was my lack of planning for the space to fit all of the elements in after I made them two separate times.  I did learn to do this in a more efficient manner if I ever use this type of layout again.  My game plan was to make little panels of flowers on water color paper which I masked off, colored with Distress Markers and inks.  I liked the results of the masking, but I just made them too large to fit on even a large standard size card.  Finally, I decided that this should just be a little art piece and let it reside on an easel or put it in a shadow box.  So, here is my mini art piece:

Hope you will come on over to The Outlawz and join in this week's fun!



  1. I really love this card Pat!
