Teen Ian

My mother in law needed a card for a teen boy, so I thought of Ian immediately. I haven't inked up this set from The Greeting Farm until now.  I think it came out pretty cute. I love this image and should use it more! Just need more hours in my day!

I used the sketch from Eat, Sleep, Stamp, Sketchy Thursday #123 for this layout. Tracy has the greatest sketches posted every Thursday! I'm also entering Cards for Men challenge #7, embossing (both Kraft panels are dry embossed). And My Partner in Crafting Crime, challenge #23, use at least three buttons.

Card Recipe:
Stamps: The Greeting Farm
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Palette Umber
Paper: PTI ssw, Kraft, SU Certainly Celery, Bordering Blue, DCWV Latte Stack
Embellishments: copics, nesties PTI buttons, string, cuttlebug embossing folders, dimensionals

Wow Kathy! I simply love your Ian card. You must tell me your secret to taking such *perfect* photos!!! You made this sketch look even better with your take on it. I absolutely love the clean look of the layout. Congratulations my friend! You have been selected as this week's featured Sketch Artist. The post will go up tomorrow morning!
