Hello crafters! Welcome to this week's sketch challenge!!
Hope you are enjoying your summer!
On behalf of Sandra, Trina, Pat, Lisbeth, and Emily, I want to welcome you all to this week's challenge! We really enjoy seeing your creations.
Thanks to everyone who entered our sketch challenge last week. The entries were wonderful and amazing. We hope you'll join in the fun again this week as we're very eager to see what you will make with this week's sketch :-)
Remember you can create anything, a card, tag, scrap page, as long as the sketch is your inspiration and recognizable.
This month of August, our sponsor is the wonderful Oak Pond Creations. Kim has given our design team some lovely images to play with and the winner of our August challenge will receive 3 digis from her Etsy shop!!
Here is the sketch for this week!
And now for some inspiration from our fabulous sketch team!
Pat's card is so beautiful with the lavenders and purples. Her Iris image from Oak Pond Creations is so realistic and has lovely shading! The pearl embellishments on the flourishes and the butterfly really bring a finished look to this gorgeous card.
Emily has made a vintage/shabby chic card that is so beautiful with the rolled paper edges and all the little additions that just make this card so charming. The image is colored so beautifully and the flowers on the upper right side are fabulous.
Sandra's card has those cute little tags peeking out of the layers of patterned paper which I think it such a creative way to add even more interest to this already spectacular card. Her iris is colored beautifully and is a real show stopper!!
We didn't all plan on using the same Iris image ---it just happened that way! But I'm glad it did as you can see how we ended up with so many different versions of cards using the same sketch for inspiration and the same image by Oak Pond Creations. I made a Get Well card with my Iris image.
Hope you enjoyed looking at our cards and that you found some inspiration to take part in the Sketch Challenge!! We would really love to see what you come up with!
