A Sketch With Flair

Are you a Fiskateer yet? You are? Yeah!!! You're not? What are you waiting for?!? If your asking yourself what the Fiskateers are, let me tell you a little about them. The Fiskateers are a community that shares a love of all things Fiskars. We share ideas, chat, post picture, etc. of our life and crafty endeavors. Love paper crafting? The Fiskateers are for you. Love sewing? The Fiskateers are for you. Can't live without your Fiskars scissors and border punches? The Fiskateers are definitely for you. Have I convinced you yet? Want to be a Fiskateer? Click here and this link will take you to the 5 Fisk-a-leads. E-mail any one of them, let them know that Samantha T. #6363 told you the Fiskateers community was the best place to talk crafting. They'll let you know more about the Fiskateer and even get you hooked up with your very own Fiskateer number.
Why all the Fisk-a-love today? Well, last week Sunday Fiskateer Rebecca set up an on-line chat with Allison Davis (chats like this are just 1 of the reasons I love being a Fiskateer). Allison's written a bunch of really fantastic sketch books. During the chat Allison issued a sketch challenge, and here's what I came up with:
Now to talk about the products used. The only non-American Craft item here is was the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch that I used on the Bodacious Banana paper. Everything else is from American Craft's Heat Wave line. The bright, sunny colors went perfectly with my summer back yard pool pictures. Here's a run down of what I used:
Paper: Pretty Papaya, Maverick Mango, Bodacious Banana, and Creamy Coconut
Flair (you know, those great button shaped accents): Surfs Up and Day in the Sun
Details: Sandy (don't you just love that camera? I think it's my favorite accent on the whole page!)
Remarks: Surfboard (self-adhering chip board)
Beach House: Heat Wave (chip board accent)
