it's challenge time again at
This week, we have a beautiful versatile Sketch for you:
Challenge #75 Sketch
I personally struggle quite a bit with sketch challenges, I usually tend to leave them out. But this one I liked so much, I couldn't stop myself and created three cards - with the intent to do a whole series with all my critters and washi tapes.
I have been playing with my Polaroid frame dies a lot lately and this sketch made me reach for them once again. So I chose a cute doggy and a few accessories and coloured them with alcohol markers. Then I added just a few strips of Washi tape and a slim sentiment strip and that's it. Very clean and simple.
After a day or two with this card still sitting on my craft desk, I decided to go back and create a second card. This time I chose two fish stamps by Dyan Reaveley, because they are just so hilarious. I coloured them in greens and yellows and added yellow and aqua Washi tape. For a pop of colour I chose some Washi with Flamingos and added a sentiment strip in the same Flamingo pink.
For the third card I picked one of the cats in the Tim Holtz set and coloured a bit of a background scene to ground him.
For all three envelopes I just added strips of the same Washi tape under the address area.
Now it's over to you, what will you make of this sketch?
