Sketch Challenge #173
Happy Sunday peeps! You know what that means don’t you? Yepper… time for a new Sketch Challenge. I’m going to talk about the sketches in a minute, but first let’s get to business.
This week’s sketch was made from this wonderfully masculine card Linda posted on her blog, Creepin Along, back in January. The link for this card, and her other Top 10 cards for 2012, is here.
Isn’t this card beautiful? I love the papers Linda chose and especially the fishing lure stamp. The deadline for Father’s Day cards for the troops has passed. However, if you still need to make a Father’s Day card for your dad this will be a great sketch to use. I have and “Oooopsie” to confess. Linda let me know she followed Sketch #24, from 2010, for this card. So, I apologize for letting it slip through my fingers. OWH tries to bring you new, fresh sketches each week. But sometimes… well… an Ooopsie happens. In this case we changed some of the elements.
I want to give you a reminder about the sketches. First, they’re great to jump start your mojo.You can follow them exactly, or you can change them up. Using this week’s sketch as an example: The small circle doesn’t have to be a circle, it can be any kind of embellishment or shape; the center rectangle element can be another shape or die cut; you can leave the layout horizontal, like it is, or flip it and have a vertical layout. The main thing is to be able to recognize the sketch in your finished card.
Another reminder: All the OWH sketches, from #1 to the present, can be found here on the blog. Just go up to the header under “Get Busy” and click on “Sketches”. Or, you can just click here.
You will find all the sketches displayed. Click on a sketch and it will take you to that specific post. You will also find a downloadable PDF for sketches #1 – #150. Print it out and keep it on hand. You will also find 32 Bonus Sketches and a downloadable PDF to print… plus a downloadable PDF chart to keep track of all the sketches and check off those you have already used. Pretty nifty swifty… Huh?
Okay, I’ve taken up enough of your time so… Bye! Go create something wonderful!
