Hello everyone! Thursday means it's time for another Weekend Sketch Challenge at Inspiration in Action. Sketches are a great way to stir creativity when you don't know where to start. So I invite you to play along this weekend! Once you're created your project, make sure and come back to this post and leave your name and the location of your artwork with the Mister Linky Widget below so that we can all enjoy your creativity!
Clean and simple are the words I would use to characterize this week's sketch and cards. There's a large area for your focal image with room for multiple texture, pattern and color in the background and the sentiment is stamped (or attached) off the main image.
So, have fun with this week's sketch and I can't wait to see what you create this week!
I've got two examples for you today. This first one uses the new Watercolor Trio Stamp set that will be available beginning May 1st from the Summer Mini Catalog. The colors are Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose and Whisper White.
I colored directly on the stamps with Markers to get the multi-colored effect. Markers used were Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive. As you can see, I stamped the image off 3 times, which gives you variance in the color and makes the final image look more dimensional (and it's fun to do).
The sentiment was stamped in Black Stazon Ink. I used a bit of the Pink Flamingo Designer Series Paper along with the Scallop Border Punch and 5/8" Real Red Satin Ribbon.
Here's the second card that I created for you today, using some favorites from the Occasions Mini Catalog (only 2 more days to order these gems), Shades of spring Designer Series Paper and the With All My Heart Stamp Set.
The colors are Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White.
I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch and some 5/8" Satin Ribbon. I also used the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions Folder to give some texture underneath the focal image. And that Big Flower is punched out with the Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch.
So there you go! You've seen the sketch and some examples! Have I given you enough to inspire your next creation? I hope so, and I hope you'll play along by leaving your information below!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll come back soon for more ideas and inspiration!
