WT71 - Gotta Hand it to You
This week the Way's to Use it Challenge is to use something I know you all have...your hand. Hand-draw something on your card. Add some fancy line-work, hand-draw in some extra details, sketch your own image...have fun. I'm not going to give you too much in how-tos...be creative and have fun!

Kittie747 always does some fabulous hand-drawn work and here is the link to her tutorial...


Mixed Bouquet Knock-off

Please remember to put WT71 in your keyword section and post a link back here so that we can all see your work. Please remember this is not a race or contest...there are no prizes...just lots of fun and inspiration. Please remember, no Sunday uploads.:)

I hope to find some time later to play along too. Fingers-crossed!

Have a fabulous, hands-on, stamping day!

Sounds like a great challenge, Julia. I need to stamp today, so I will definitely be puttting one together in a few. Thanks!

Hope to have time today -- thanks Julia!

bensarmom 07-27-2006 05:38 AM

Can't wait to play............need coffee first before I can stamp or draw! LOL Thanks for the challenge Julia!

crooked river 07-27-2006 05:41 AM

Yikes! I stamp because I can't draw :) Now might be the time to try the squiggles....

cjf&cjfsmommy 07-27-2006 05:56 AM

Oh fun one! but I'm at the beach for a few days so I can't play. I do hv something in my gallery w/ my main image drawn.

lacyquilter 07-27-2006 06:05 AM

Ooo, I love doing this. In fact, my card for yesterday's challenge has a bunch hand drawn. Thanks, Julia.

dawnmercedes 07-27-2006 06:14 AM

Okay! Very creative challenge, Julia!

Jerri Kay 07-27-2006 06:46 AM

Oooh Kittie's going to love this Julia. Thanks for a great challenge, I hope to participate today.

Barbra1224 07-27-2006 06:56 AM

Oh! Remember Paco? He was hand drawn! I don't know that I could ever do that again! Hmm. I'll have to think about this one!

I have actually failed at the squiggles! Maybe the second time will be the charm!

I can't wait to see everyone else's drawings-fun challenge Julia!

Babsnelson 07-27-2006 07:12 AM

Fun challenge Julia! I'm always paranoid to draw on my cards...this is the perfect challenge for me!! I think I'll have time to play later - gotta grocery shop first!!

valentina9 07-27-2006 07:13 AM

This challenge got be all excited and then I couldn't get it finished until after work, I will have to share it this afternoon. Great challenge Julia!

Hot Scarlett 07-27-2006 07:15 AM

I had to go look at it again. I just love that card. It makes me giggle. He's so adorable and still looks like a trouble maker.... or am I just reading the trouble maker part into to him from his owner? :p

jsbrooketrout 07-27-2006 07:27 AM

Here's my hand drawn card! This was lots of fun! I may do a little more doodling today! Great challenge Julia!! Thanks for looking!

Scribbled Daisies

Pinky 07-27-2006 07:49 AM

This my first card for today's challenge. I love doing the little squiggily lines on my cards. I did one yesterday for the challenge. I used a non-SU unmounted set that I had and never used. I will have to use it more often as she is a sassy cat for sure!


Thanks Julia for hosting this!


ematson 07-27-2006 07:55 AM

Great challenge, Julia! I would like to try freehand more but just hate to create things that end up in the trash because I'm not happy with my results. :) I guess I just need to keep trying. Thanks for the push!

Here is one from my gallery -

This Penny Black stamp has a balloon that comes up from the head of the middle bunny which I masked off (although not very well I see) and then hand drew the flowers on the ends after being inspired by pinefeather's Inky Antics card http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=3003

Here's another one from my gallery -

Hopefully I'll get some time later to create something new. Thanks for looking!

Motherof6 07-27-2006 08:05 AM

I am such a poor sketcher I have to explain my stick figures :rolleyes:, that is why I stamp. Everyone else in my family can draw wonderfully...I just didn't get that gene pool :(

Stuck on Bugs & Kisses set (working on sampler set).

Julia S 07-27-2006 08:07 AM

Here is mine....

Sending you Flowers

Thanks for looking!

SheStampsHeCamps 07-27-2006 08:13 AM

Gee..... I just checked the challenge, FREAKED OUT.... then dh comes in asking if I want to go to the mall and buy a carpet cleaner!! HA! My 'white knight' rescued me from the challenge!!!

I was more than intimidated by it, and when I saw how excited MOST of you were, that made it even harder to think of what I could possibly do!

I'm goin' shoppin'..... Have a great day.... I'll check in later to see what ya'll came up with! ;)

reneejul1 07-27-2006 08:22 AM

Here is my card. Hope you like it. I did this one during VSBN, so no one got to see it.

Vicky Gould 07-27-2006 08:28 AM

Emily and I had fun with today's challenge. I'm particularly proud of her idea which she thought up and drew all by herself! Go, Em, go!

Here's my card http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=70441
I did the Kitty type card. I need to practice a lot more. Great challenge, Now I must meet some other challenges, like cleaning house and grocery shopping. ect. I would really rather just stamp and forget all that other stuff.

curlycurlyhair 07-27-2006 08:52 AM

I can't draw, so I tried some doodling. Here's my card:


CardFanatic 07-27-2006 08:57 AM

Here's mine. I had a hard time coloring it because I used a basic black marker so I could omit part of the image. But little boys are a little dirty, right? Can't wait to see everyones when I get home!


crooked river 07-27-2006 08:59 AM

Despite my initial reaction, I really enjoyed this challenge :) I actually had to talk myself into putting the gel pen to paper, and it wasn't so bad!

Thanks, Julia!


Jeanne S 07-27-2006 09:08 AM

Here's mine:


Pinky 07-27-2006 09:29 AM
