Default Sketch Challenge 171

Keywords: SC171 No spaces between letters and numbers, commas between keywords

Welcome to Sketch Challenge 171!


Wow, isn't that number amazing? I love that we can build such a huge body of creative work over time together. The team of volunteers at SCS are such a hard working bunch and we are *so* lucky to have them. Roxie needed to be elsewhere tonight, but I am thrilled to be able to post this sketch for you.





Master Sketch Challenge Thread: here

Gallery Submissions SC171: here


THIS WEEK:
Your challenge is to create a layout featuring an offset oval. I found that my oval seemed a little heavy on the left (high side), so I added the trio of elements along the bottom right side to balance it out. You are welcome to create a single layer card using stamps or dry embossing if you want to avoid layers.


Get out your oval stamps, die cuts, punches and cutting tools and create some ovals!


I hope you enjoy, I am so excited to see what you create!


My Sketch Sample: here


Stampy hugs,
Lisa



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.

Default Isn't it interesting

when you start making a card and then it takes on a life of it's own and comes out looking like this:

What?????

I can't explain this one very well - it just happened. lol

Please take a look and let me know what you think. I'm still undecided, but it demanded to be posted. lol

Well, This was supposed to be for this sketch challenge. Not sure it really qualifies anymore as it had a life of it's own. Should I worry about those challenge police?
