Sketchabilities Challenge #99

Happy Tuesday folks!

 It's a short work week for me, so I decided to take some for me...and get crafty!!!

I love sketches. They sure do help one with their crafting. Especially me. Although, I will admit, sometimes they don't! And I also like challenge blogs. I try to participate in as many challenges as I can....some weeks, unfortunately, I do ot get to enter any. Anyways, life happens.

There's one challenge blog that keeps my interest piqued! Sketchabilities! Awesome sketches, awesome DT!

This week, the challenge is this sketch:
Isn't that a great sketch??

Here's my take:
I had this picture of my sons' for a long time, and wanted to get them scrapped! I used various papers from my stash...long acquired rub-ons....Thickers...Inkadinkadoo stamps on shipping tags...Pink Paislee  star paper and star, covered with Distress paint.
I wanted a little Las Vegas, a little flash, but definitely not too much, so I used Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold spray...and there are a couple of drop of Coffee color spray also from Tattered Angels. That acrylic arrow is from Studio Calico.

That's it for me.
Thanks for dropping by.

Be safe. Get crafty.
