There's No Place Like Home...

My little boy loves the book, The Wizard of Oz. I have to admit that, when I was a girl, I was afraid of the movie -- I mean, who wouldn't be frightened of flying monkeys? This week's 2 Sketches 4 You Sketch Challenge had us playing with some very fun repositionable stickers, and when I saw how adorable they were, any fears I had went right out the window!

This week's sketch is from the ever fabulous Kazan, and I flipped it to create an "emerald" stage. I love the decorative edge of the sketch and I made that the top of card. Now I'm off to, what else? See the Wizard, perhaps?

  2. Sponge background on card stock. Adhere to card.
