Bloggers Challenge ~ Sketch challenge

I {heart} sketch challenges, and this one by our list mom Lisa Somerville is a beauty!

I used this sketch for a card that I used last night as part of my masculine card class. We all determined, that glitter was perfectly okay on a man card, when it was to show paint on a car or motorcycle! :)

To make the mix, I start with a big glob of crystal effects, and add one drop of reinker, then I added dazzling diamonds glitter to the mix and just use the mixture to paint it on.

I used an aqua painter to pull some of the night of navy ink across the page, and painted my paint with the crystal effects ~ and that's all folks!

Those big honkin brads are fantastic on a guy card.. they look like hubcaps to me! :) I really loved this sketch and can't wait to see what the other bloggers challenge girls are up to this week!
