Sketch Something

Happy Friday!

We have a new challenge posted over on STAMP SOMETHING and this week we are please to share a sketch challenge, designed by Katharina Frei! We also have fabulous blog candy up for grabs, donated by Katharina and Whiff of Joy stamps! Head over there now and check it out! While you're there be sure to get a peek of the terrific design team samples too! We have a new design team member starting this week too, it's Lisa Henke of My Little Creative Escape. Lisa has helped out in the past as a guest designer and we love her work so much we wanted her to be a weekly contributor! Welcome Lisa!



This is Katharina's sketch, pretty easy right! So get out your supplies and make a card using this sketch. Enter your card by 7pm EST next Thursday, October 23rd and you'll be entered for a chance to win a beautiful Whiff of Joy stamp!


This is my interpretation on Katharina's sketch. I started with Riding hood Red cardstock as my base. I layered on So Saffron cardstock and Washington Apple DSP.

My image is a Whiff of Joy stamp called Melinda Blowing Kisses. I stamped her in black Stazon Ink and colored with watercolor crayons and an aquapainter. Her wings have been dusted with crystal effects and glitter. Then to finish off the image, I added some doodling.

The accents here are wide grosgrain ribbon in Saffron and Pumpkin, some silver brads, styled silver hodgepodge, and a designer silver flower with a rhinestone brad. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet.

Thanks for popping over, I hope you'll find some time to stamp something today....maybe even sketch something! Happy Stamping!! :)
