365 Cards Day 106 Super Sketchy Sunday


I had been asked by a friend to make a card for a retiring art teacher. I had cut out a palette and had been messing around with it for a while yesterday, but wasn't happy with anything I did.
When I saw the sketch from 365 Cards this morning, it was like an answer to a maiden's prayer... the shape on the sketch was so redolent of the palette that I knew immediately that this sketch would work for me.
And here it is. I mounted the sentiment onto card which is like a blank canvas... after all that's probably what the outset of his retirement will be.
I hope that the recipient will be pleased!
