PLEASE READ: in order to make finding the challenge cards at a later date a little easier, when you post a card to the gallery using this sketch as inspiration please put " SC07 " in the keywords spot.
THis week's inspiration card was done by stampercamper (love her work!!!!) and I think it is a really great design that will be fun to work with! It is here: stampercamper
THe sketch is attached below.
Here are the rules: there are no rules! If you can post, please do, if not, don't worry. Play along whenever you get the chance during the week! Have fun!
To print this layout: - (nc means no color) If you see a small layout click on it or if you see an icon click on the words next to it.
-When the black surround screen appears click only on the layout and a white screen with the layout should appear.
-Right click and click on print from the pop up box or hold down your shift key and P key at the same time.
-Now you're ready to choose print and it should print to actual size of the card depending on your computer.
I've been waiting all day! I am SO loving these challenges. I was definitely in a rut and you have inspired me to broaden my creativity! Thanks so much!
And BTW.....AndreaSophie, your gallery ROCKS!!!!
Location: Living imperfectly with great delight! AB, Canada
Thanks again, AndreaSophie!
Just was reading a thread about the Joy of Cardmaking put out by Papercrafts and everyone is hanging out for it... I'm going back over to tie them into the past challenges. We have 'it' right here! and just think at the end of the year we'll have 52 designs and the most awesome examples on the planet to go along with!!!!!
We do need a seperate gallery... but I love to see them out amongst the others too when looking at the set galleries and think, hey there's a sketch challenge card!
Thank you so much! : )
(It's late and I am rambling...)
Oh no . . . I'm behind again !!! I still have to do SC #6. BTW, do you know if there is any way to add SC0# to the searches? Right now, the pictures I posted for my Sketch Challenges are written out that way in the searches. Thanks !!!
I've never done these before, but I've jotted all the sketches down in a notebook & always look for the next & admire all the cards!! I'm going to start working on them today. All 7!!! Well, maybe I'll start with #7 ! These always give me so much inspiration! Thanks. I'll get working on them!!
I keep seeing them every week and am interested in possibly doing one?
Join in on the fun! AndreaSophie draws the sketch idea, all you do is come up with your own design using the sketch as a guideline. When you are done, scan or dig-pic it and then upload your card. Be sure to put a link in the forum, either with your original message or a new one!
Be prepared to become addicted and drooling by Wednesday evening, anticipating the new challenge!
We now have a gallery that I can post the sketches to so they can be together in one convenient place! Thanks Jenn I posted about where they can be found in a thread on this forum called Attn: Sketch challengers!
Okay, CrabbyAbbe: So what is the new technique you just learned.
it is called expressionistic watercoloring (I think )
you spray your CS so it is good and wet, the stamp your image, and then quickly stamp again only offset it the second time. Let your paper dry (I used my heatgun) and then stamp over the image once more for a sharper image.
ok, so it is probably not a new technique, but it is new to me.
I'm a loser ~ 19.2 pounds gone...lots more to go!
