Well the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoast (SC538) seemed like a real challenge and I needed some Grad cards, so these are what I made. I did have to flip sides with the sketch and put that little bar (#4) at the bottom.
Two of my husband’s nephews are graduating soon, so I really needed to get these made. I think the sketch worked out great and as long as I was making one, another didn’t seem like a big deal. The only changes were the colors. I used the colors of their respective schools. I did find my new Misti purchase helped me out a lot on these cards. I used it to stamp the grad boy once with Memento (so I could color with Copics) but I left it just where it was while I colored it. Then I inked the image with Versafine and stamped on top. With solid images like this, it really made a difference.
And this is for the second nephew. Identical except for the colors.
Here’s a look at the inside…the second one is the same, just different colors.
