New Open Sketch Challenge swap. Due June 6th 2013
What is a Sketch Challenge? "You take the sketch I provided and use any stamp set, any accessory, and any kind of paper to make a card. So all of the cards have the same basic layout, but they all look very different."
-It is fine to flip the sketch, change panel sizes, shapes, card size and border as you wish (unless stated in the write up for the week), a little tweaking is fine but let’s see those main elements of the posted layout please.
(The numbers and colors are requested from players so it's easier to read the layout, it means nothing towards colors used or number of borders when creating your project.)
You will have your choice of 10 sketches. You can pick one or do all. I have picked easy, Med and a harder one to challenge all of you. Post which sketch you will be doing. Have fun.
Master Thread Find, files and links of past challenges.
(Layouts starting at SC01 to the present week.)
The stamps U chose to ink should reflect You. We want our swapper to feel as if they are receiving a card from a special friend. Be you I encourage sense of humor and off the cuff cards. If you are not into this you can still join and pm me and tell me you do not want sassy off the cuff cards. I want everyone to be happy and have fun. Anything goes here.
You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you.
