Sketch Challenge #154Posted by Marlene on Jan 6, 2013 in Sketch Challenge, Stars and Stamps | 12 comments
Happy New Year 2013! I’m Marlene Diefendorf [Marlene D] and your new sketch gal. I have my own blog, but I’m so new to this OWH format that I literally squeak! Some would call me ‘over the hill’, but I’m always ready to learn. So….. Please bear with me? I want to personally thank Julie, who is stepping down after 2 years, for all the wonderful sketches she has posted and all of her hard work. You rock Julie!! Just a reminder… I don’t design the sketches myself. The sketches for this year are designed from cards submitted by our fellow OWHer’s to the various challenges. My job is to write the sketch posts and make sure they get posted on time. Let’s get the New Year started with this week’s sketch: This sketch was made from this darling card submitted by Bobbi for a previous Midweek Throwdown. You can see more of Bobbi’s wonderful creations on her blog: Bobbi’s Treasure I tell ya, I’m lovin the green and orange color combo. And look how well Bobbi has mixed her patterned papers! I’m also thinkin this design could be mass produced very easily, or even make kits to assemble later. Hmmm…… Cardmaking tip: Please make sure the center circle element doesn’t get too bulky. It would be fine to pop dot the complete element, but not each individual layer. The same goes for the knot on the ribbon treatment. We want all the cards our heroes send home to make the trip without getting torn in postal machines. Now…. go forth and get creative! I can’t wait to see what you all come up with, and don’t forget to post your creation in the linky thingy.
Please bear with me… I’m trying to get Inlinkz working.
