Today I'm sharing with you a card I made over the weekend for Keesh's Inkspirations Challenge! As soon as I saw her sketch with the big oval in the middle, I thought straight away of a tv character I grew up with as a kid (as would alot of you) so I set about making my whole card around him!
Here's the sketch!
And now let me introduce you to BERT!!
I thought this would make such a fun card for a little kid - what do you think?
The Bashful Blue panels have had the edges sponged with B/Blue ink, and then I wheeled over each of the panels with my Nursery Letters wheel in Versamark Ink cause as we alllllll know, Sesame Street is all about letters and numbers! lol
I knew Bert wore a striped top of some sort, so I had to scrounge through all my papers to find a stripey pattern and the Washington Apple DSP came to the rescue!
Then I wanted a sentiment that was larger than what I normally use (being that it's a kids card!) and I remembered my daughter had a stamp set that came in a now retired Simply Sent cardmaking Kit called A Wish For You. It was definitely what i was after, and I think it finished off the card beautifully!
Thanks for a fantastic challenge Keesh - I loved playing along!
