Sketch Challenge 5
Hi gang! I had a wonderful stamping afternoon with 3 fun gals yesterday. One of them has a thing for squirrels. So that has peaked my interest and started the wheels in my head turning. Hmmm....more on that another day.
Today I thought I thought I would play along with the sketch challenge over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. I find sketch challenges harder than color challenges. Not sure why. Yet when you are looking for a creative spin or something to help spark your creativity, any challenge can be beneficial! Going in with an open mind, this is where my creativity took me -
I just received the Starburst Sayings stamp set and coordinating framelits so I wanted to give them a whirl! What do you think? I inked the small starburst in three different colors: Primrose Petals, Island Indigo and Gumball Green. I then used the Create A Cupcake punch and punched out dots of the coordinating cardstock of each and adhered them on to a different color starburst to create some variance. The "hello" pennant flag is from the Perfect Pennants stamp set. I thought the background needed a little something, so I diecut starbursts of the Gumball Green and adhered them directly onto the card stock. It helps to give the background a touch of character don't you think? Try challenging yourself today, you may end up creating a masterpiece! *wink wink* Happy Stamping!
