Long Time, No Sketch

Back after a bit of a lengthy Winter Break, there's a new LO idea on The Sketch File today.  I'm quite pleased with this one as I think it can be used in different ways - one of my plans is to use it just for the sentiment or title on something, but for this week I've kept it pretty simple and made a card using the sketch pretty much as it is on the blog.

I actually just used some scrap card I'd been doing some Gelatos "experiments" with to make this!  They were just lying on my desk - I thought the shades of blue water-coloured card would make a pretty background so cut a large scalloped circle from it, stuck it on the card then looked around for what to do next! 
Yes - I really am THAT good at planning ahead!  not!
I spotted another piece of card, this time I'd used the Gelatos just swept across straight from the crayon, quite firmly for that deep colour - no water, but a bit of blending with my finger to merge the purple and 2 shades of blue together.  I just hand cut a few shapes to make some bunting for the horizontal lines on the sketch. 
Now with some bunting on a blue sky background the obvious thing to add for the top (heart) element of the sketch was a fluffy cloud.
I was just going to put a piece of ribbon as the vertical stroke, but then had a bit of a lightbulb moment and added the kite instead. 
I just love it when it works Like that!
Here's the sketch

If you pop over to The Sketch File you can see Brenda's fab card too - and find the InLinkx gadget to add your own projects if you join in and make something
