Sketch Challenge Fun




As you probably know Lauren posts a sketch challenge every Saturday and has been for almost a year now! Wow time sure does fly. Which reminds me I am coming up on my one year of blogging as well! WOO HOO! Maybe some blog candy soon?


Here is Lauren's sketch from this Saturday. A very very super cool sketch. I was a little ambitious this weekend with this sketch so I have two samples.


First I made a card using this sketch. I pulled out my Unity Stamps and used a flower from the Floral Fantastical Kit. My colored solid papers are SU and the pattern one is from a DCWV stack pack. I'll be totally honest I'm not sure which purples these are from SU, I want to say one is Orchid Opuluance. I used ribbon (American Crafts) for the upper middle part of the sketch. I colored this flower with Copics and added stickles to the leaves for glitter. I used my trusty partner in "crime" the cuttlebug. Lauren have I thanked you recently for telling me I NEEDED the cuttlebug! I say it all the time it was the best gift ever! (rec'd from DH last Christmas) Ok I'll stop now!


Then I was looking at this awesome sketch and a recent stamp I purchased by Rubber Stampede. I actually found it on clearance and liked it, then I stamped with it and colored it in and now I love it. Here is why.....



Isn't this angel beautiful? I love it. First off I flipped the sketch. Then I stamped her and colored with Copics. I used my Spica glitter pens to add glitter to her wings and horn, not sure how well it shows in this picture. My pattern papers are by Basic Grey and for the little flowers I punched out from black cardstock and added a bling sticker in the middle. I put this gal in a frame instead of making a card. I thought this would make a nice "picutre" in the house.

I have some fun and exciting news to share with you. Lauren has decided to have a group who will use her sketch each week. We all know her creations are beyond amazing, but she wanted to have other people's take on her sketches as well. Great idea huh? And guess what? I get to be a part of that!! WOO HOO! I'm psyched it should be fun. Lauren is such an awesome inspiration to all stampers and she is so super sweet as well. Thanks Lauren!

If I left something out or have any questions please let me know. Well that's it for now! Tomorrow I will have to brag about a great adhesive product I've had a chance to try, so stay tuned....

Thanks for stopping by!

Till Later....
