Freshly Made Sketches #450

Hello everyone! One of the highlights of my crafting week is on Wednesday, when I get to share the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! This week's sketch was designed by the very talented Karren, and I know you will have fun creating with it.

I had several stamp sets out, trying to decide which I would use for the trio of circles. I finally decided on the yet-uninked Zippy Zebras from My Favorite Things. I have been wanting to use these cute guys for a long time, and they finally got their chance to shine today!

I used a little of this and that from various companies to make this little layered scene, but I think it turned out so cute. What do you think? 

I stamped my zebras with VersaFine Clair Nocturne, and then did a little highlighting with Copics. The sky background was a watercolor distress ink background I had. It has some nice texture in it that doesn't distract from the foreground. The clouds are from MFT, the grass die is Sweet N Sassy Stamps, and the sun rays are Brighter Days from Concord and 9th. That fun background paper is from Stampin' Up! 

I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your creations to our gallery! You have until Monday, August 31, at 3 PM Eastern time to join us! Be sure to stop at the Freshly Made Sketches blog, and click on the names of my teammates to see what beauty they have created this week!
