2 Sketches 4 You - #36 - Swan Song

Good Morning Everyone,

Today brings another awesome sketch from Laura of 2 Sketches 4 You - I LOVE this sketch with the dots and the scalloped bottom.) I couldn't wait to play along!!!!and this week's sponsor is Sakura of America. I ADORE their glaze pens - they are simply the best - so quick, easy and smooth and they give the image a nice glazed and raised look. I also love the way that it adds a whole lot of shine to the card - and since its a pen - you can use it in very small areas. If you haven't tried their awesome products - you have to check them out here.

I loved this sketch and the scallops reminded me of waves and that immediately reminded me of the beautiful Verve's Swan Song set and so I stamped the sentiment in two shades of Memento ink and then glazed them over with the orange and blue glaze pen with some dots from the yellow glaze pen. I then stamped the swan and colored the swan in with copics and then glaze it with the clear glaze pen:
Here is a closer peek at the areas that I used the Sakura glaze pens - you can see the shine on the waves and on the lines - i LOVE how smoooooooooth they are :)

Card Details:
Paper: Kaiser Off Shore Collection
Ink: Memento
Accessories: pearls from Kaiser, spellbinders, Sakura of America liquid glaze pens, ribbon from stash, sponger and dimensionals

I hope you play along with us over at 2S4U and don't forget to check out the awesome creations by rest of the DT over at 2 Sketches 4 You!

Very nice Sankari. This may just give me the boost and inspiration I need to pull my Sakura's out of my closet and put them to good use. LOL
