My entry for Freshly Made Sketches #94

Hi! Super quick post today.

My entry for Freshly Made Sketches #94.

I liked the idea of the sentiment on a slant. And the slant led me think of a steep hill. So this is my take on it

Supplies used are handmade paper in white and green, scraps of black and yellow card stock.

I created the sky and the sun with Faber Castell watercolour pencils. After the paper was dry, I sponged white acrylic paint with a circular sponge dauber to make the clouds.

I mounted the green handmade paper and the car on foam pads. Two black buttons became the wheels of the car. The sentiment was handwritten with a white gel pen.

The funny thing is, while I was making the card, my nephew called up to say that he had got admitted to the college of his choice. So now this card is going to him!
