This is a First!

I have never done a sketch challenge before.  I have make cards from sketches, and done other challenges, but This one I couldn’t pass up.  I saw the card when I was surfing for something else.  And I instantly loved it!  My immediate thought was, I need to case this card.  So, I clicked on it to track it down to it’s web site, and low and behold, it was the example for a card sketch challenge.  I couldn’t believe when i loved the sketch as much as the card…

And I immediately blanked.  Sent DH to the stash (I know, dangerous stuff, but I like living on the edge 😉 )  and told him to pick 2 papers that went together.  This is the card that became of this fun excercise-

owhsketch 190

This one is made with 2 random papers from my stash (sorry, I don’t know who made them, I bought a huge lot of paper last spring, and these 2 were in it),  Various colors of Hero Arts shadow inks, Simon Says Stamps set called Petal Pieces (clear stamp set), EK Tools butterfly punch, a Cricket embossing folder, and white heavy card stock from my office supply store.  Oh, and the black is done with Sharpie.  I think it’s makes it pop!

(Oh, BTW, I did use my stuff! 😉 )

Have a great weekend! =D

Old Green Card (re-do)

Okay.  This one is… interesting.  I came across a card I make years ago.  And it was capital ‘U’ U-G-L-Y!  Ya know one, that hurt your eyes to look at, and made you cringe? Yeah.  So I ripped it apart, salvaged what I could, and put it back together.  And it is a massive improvement.  I still wouldn’t actually give it to anyone, but at least now I don’t feel like I need to burn it… 😉

red and pink experiment

This was one of those projects… I started it around valentines day as a test to play with my new Sew Easy.  So the base was pink.  And then I went of on a rabbit trail.  When I got back around to it, I had to stay within the pink and red (and a little white) theme.  This is the result.  It’s not bad.  Got a little bit of everything on it.  I do like the stitching.  The bead charm is my favorite though.
