April Sketch - Arizona Style

So... I am in the midst of planning our family vacation this summer, and we are going to Arizona. I know - it will be hotter than HELL - what am I thinking! But I lived there from the time I was almost 3 until I was almost 8 years old. I don't remember a LOT... but I do remember the cacti and the tarantulas. :-) So as I am in the middle of all this the sketch came around and I kept thinking about our trip and this came out.

412Sketch.jpg I flipped Kathi's sketch 180 degrees... and turned the scallops into points. They reminded me of either a picket fence, or cacti. Sort of. :-)

I used Bombshell's Desert Background Digital Stamps.  I actually printed the image out twice. The first image I colored in the greens of the cacti with the light yellow flowers and the cloud (B60 BTW). The second image I cut out with a circle Nestie completely... and airbrushed it with B32. I then cut out the cacti cutting off all of the spines. I pasted the colored cacti over the circle image. This gives the Out of the Box illusion, while in reality it is completely cut out.  The Greens are G40, 82, 85.

Now why don't you head over to the Bombshell Stamps blog and check out the sketch challenge for the week.
